If you don’t know what Qatar Airways business class “Qsuite” is, perhaps the best way to tell you, is just to show you. After all, pictures are worth a thousand words, and I don’t feel like typing today.
The Qatar Airways Qsuite is one of the two best business class seats in the world, and coupled with the airlines exacting approach to service, it’s an experience you may literally not want to end. Yes, you may actually ask if they can fly around longer, even on a long haul flight. Here’s a review. Right now there’s a nice little price drop happening on flights out of easy to reach Scandinavian cities, which brings the opportunity to fly in this amazing style from £1285 round trip between Europe and Asia…
The Flight Deals
One of the best things about Qatar Airways is that they almost always have solid prices from a few cities in Scandinavia, but sometimes they go just a little bit further, which makes things even more tempting. At the moment, there are a few deals which are going a bit lower than usual, including…
- £1285 (€1400) Oslo to Bangkok Round Trip
- £1290 (€1404) Stockholm to Hong Kong Round Trip
- £1310 (€1438) Helsinki to Krabi, Thailand Round Trip (No Qsuite)
- £1325 (€1445) Gothenburg to Singapore Round Trip
With all these deals, the savings versus other starting points, including where you may be reading this from can make it worth finding a cheap flight or using points to start your trip in one of these places.
Booking shouldn’t be a pain in the ass, and that starts with easily finding dates where the best prices are available. Each city offers slightly different dates where prices are at their absolute lowest, so let’s break those down by city pair…
Oslo to Bangkok – there are great prices around £1350 from September 2019 through June 2020, but you’ll find the lowest prices if you depart on a Thursday or Sunday. For example, September 12th to September 20th brings up £1284 booked directly with Qatar Airways.
Stockholm to Hong Kong – these deals kick off in late September and run through May 2020. Much like the Oslo to Bangkok fares, you’ll get the absolutely lowest prices by departing on a Thursday or Sunday for direct bookings.
Gothenburg to Singapore – this is one of the more widely available offers out at the moment, with flights available at the lowest prices on every day of the week except Tuesday and Friday from Sept 2019 through July 2020.
Helsinki to Krabi, Thailand – these island steals kick in November 19th and are around until April 11th, 2020. You’ll find the lowest prices for departures on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday and especially if you stay at least one week.
These deals are really easy to book, thanks in part to the Qatar Airways booking engine which shows you the lowest prices available on either side of the dates you search. Basically, you search, and if the day before is lower priced, you’ll see it quickly. There’s also a 15 day calendar, in case you feel stuck.
You can book directly with Qatar Airways here.
Simply enter OSL-BKK, GOT-SIN, HEL-KBV or ARN-HKG and following the date advice above. Qatar Airways will tell you as you select flights which ones you can expect to have Qsuites. All of the flights between Doha and Hong Kong and Singapore feature Qsuites, and most to Bangkok do too, except for A330 or Boeing 787 flights. From Europe to Doha, you can expect these seats, which are almost as good, though you may get lucky with a random Qsuite on that segment too. Enjoy the trip!
