Heard the rumors about Qatar Airways business class? They’re all true. It’s sublime. Dine on demand food, attentive crews, state of the art seats and fully flat beds make for a truly luxurious experience. And one of the newest fleets in the sky with cool new planes even means less jet lag, too! And for 80,000 points round trip, or just 40,000 points one way, you can enjoy a whole lot of it, without breaking the bank. Here’s how to enjoy Qatar Airways using points, to the max!
You can start in Asia or the Middle East and fly to either destination. This can be a great way to score some sunshine en route back to Europe or the US after an amazing Asian adventure, or the other way around. In this great opportunity to maximize your points, you can fly between Asia and the Middle East in either direction – for just 40,000 points each way. There are some long flights on offer, too! You could also use Etihad, if you’d prefer to visit Abu Dhabi or Dubai.
This is one of our twelve best business class tricks. American Airlines AAdvantage offers the best rates for these flights. You can create American Airlines points by flying OneWorld airlines and entering your American frequent flyer number or by grabbing one of the (many) American Airlines credit cards and by earning points from your online shopping, using the American Airlines portal. One American Airlines credit card offers 50,000 points after making just one purchase. Yes, a latte would do.
All Qatar flights will go via Doha, through Qatar’s incredible Al Mourjan Business Class Lounge. You could start in one of the trending destinations of 2018, like Muscat, Oman. You can then fly on via Doha, direct to places like Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Bangkok and many more. Flights such as Seoul would net you over 11 hours in the air, with plenty of time to indulge! It’s rumored that Tokyo or Seoul will even get the new jaw dropping QSuites. Here’s a review of Airbus A350 business class.
This is fairly straight forward to book, if you don’t mind a quick search and a phone call. You can use the British Airways website to look up availability for Qatar Airways flights. Ignore the amount of miles British Airways say the flights cost, you’re just looking for available seats in business class. Once you find availability on the British Airways site, call American Airlines with flight numbers ready, to book the deals. 40,000 each way is a steal of a deal.
