Qatar Airways 2 for 1 sale ends early.Back to Forum
Anonymous12 Feb 2014
The 4day sale which ends tomorrow (14th) seems to have ended early. Got a price to CPT for business class yesterday evening for £3000. 12 hours later all fares now £4000 plus. I phoned QR to be told that there were no more cheap fares. The fares she quoted were more than twice what I paid for a normal single a month ago. Rip off…or did somebody get the only ticket in the offer!?12 Feb 2014
The recent Cathay sale, coinciding with Chinese New Year, was very sparse especially in the premium cabins.
Methinks they must be filling the premium cabins without having to discount much or offer a free upgrade on a leg.12 Feb 2014
They do these every year and every year its the same. The prices get hiked at least 50% the day they announce the sale.
QR, who are my favorite carrier going east are the DFS of Airlines, the deals are never what they appear to be.12 Feb 2014
Openfly – I could get tickets to Colombo for £3115 this morning. In the event, I preferred to go from the “no refunds for anything whatsoever” to the ‘Restricted Business Class’ offering, which charges £100 for changes and £150 for cancellation.
Two tickets, for myself and Mrs TOH, for a fortnight in Sri Lanka in early November. £3291.10, business class. Very pleased. Especially as they’re a OneWorld member and so we can add the tier points to our BA ones.
And no, Qatar’s website is not the best, is it?12 Feb 2014
TOH, you will be pleased to know the relatively short Doha – Colombo is just over the “long haul” threshold, so you will get the same tier points for that sector as you will for London – Doha.12 Feb 2014
Just booked a €3000 ticket to BKK for 2 , a saving of €2200. Lovely. Also said non refundable yet my booking confirmation states €150 cancellation fee or €100 for changes. Bargain12 Feb 2014
first_class_please – that’s goodnews. Hadn’t thought of that.
stevescoots – you’re right, but it’s still a good deal. I costed out BA to Colombo, CW, on the dates I wanted at about £4.6k for two people.12 Feb 2014
Booked flights from Edinburgh to Bali for £3.5k which i thought was a good buy. Fare still available. The website is fairly ropey, but got it booked after 10 attempts!12 Feb 2014
