How was the flight? Pretty suite, actually…

Has anyone ever finished the journey from Europe to Australia and begged the airline to keep flying? No. That would be straight up crazy, but you might kinda know where the sentiment is coming from after flying Qatar’s award winning business class QSuites. And yes, they’re even nicer than you’ve heard and the dine on demand doesn’t hurt either. 2016 and 2017 were huge years for business class deals between Europe and Australia, but things sadly dried up in 2018 and that’s continued into 2019. With limited options, these £1799 (20,940SEK) deals are the best thing going…

Qatar has the best deals to Australia right now between Stockholm and Canberra, which is just a short 1.5 to 2 hour hop from Sydney or Melbourne. The good news: all Qatar flights from Doha to Canberra (and back) feature the legendary QSuites. For about £100-£200 more depending on dates, you find Gothenburg to Sydney or Copenhagen to Melbourne.

Even if Sweden isn’t where you call home, these deals can be worth traveling to Stockholm for, since the savings may still be greater. That’s especially true if you use points or miles to get from your home base to Sweden. From Stockholm to Doha QSuites will only be on select flights, and you can use the ExpertFlyer Seat Maps to see if yours will. QSuites look like this.

All flights feature dine on demand and the other stuff that makes life fairly grand. There’s even a good French Bordeaux.

Qatar makes booking fairly easy, thanks to a seven day calendar for both departure and return. Look for dates on QatarAirways.com where prices are roughly 10,000 SEK each way, which brings you to a total price around £1800. On some dates, it may even be slightly less. You can book here. Also, select “premium only” to filter out economy. Happy hunting.

  1. Why won’t they let us fly this in reverse! $6500 AUD in reverse.Us Aussies just get screwed on flight costs.

    1. Hey Phil,

      Frustration = warranted. Australian airlines are vicious with pricing but hopefully competition will force them to sober up.

      In the interim, my advice would be to consider using miles or a cheap deal to get from Oz to Europe if you plan to make multiple return trips.

      For example, use miles to get to Europe, enjoy Europe. Use this deal to get back to Oz. Then if you will be returning, use it a month or two later to go back to Europe. Obviously it only works if you have repeat needs, but it can be a great way to save.

  2. Very nice deal indeed, but i need SE Asia rather than AUS deals at the moment.

    Fingers crossed for a big global QR sale being launched soon!
