If you choose flights with an A380, you’ll end up without Qsuites, but with the addition of an incredible business class bar. If you end up on flights to Australia operated by the Airbus A350 or Boeing 777, you’ll have Qsuites with privacy doors on the longest flights of the trip. The A350, which flies in 2020 also offers an improved cabin environment with lower noise levels, better air pressure and more.

Because Google Flights price info for these flights is inaccurate, the easiest way to book is directly with QatarAirways.com.

You can enter your search based on the date info above, and then press more dates to look for options around 10,000-11,000 SEK/NOK each way. On the A380, who knows, you may end up getting upgraded to First Class. It happens pretty often…

  1. Can these Europe flights with Qatar depart from Australia return ?
    I note these are all listed as departing in Europ

  2. GSTP – Thanks for posting this. While we live in the US, I saw of these dates line up for her B-Day next year. Quick question as I haven’t used the benefit yet, would US’s AMEX Biz Platinum IAP program be able to get these flights reduced even further? Just curious…. will look into it.

    thanks again.

    1. Hey Ceded, sorry I’m just seeing this now. Not as up to date with comments as I once was. Unfortunately that benefit only really applies to EX US, so it wouldn’t. Hope you were able to grab some tickets and enjoy. Truly no better way to get there in business. I’m a booker too!
