Qatar Airways Experience

As the only 5-star airlines in the middle-east area, Qatar Airways offers an outstanding onboard experience, especially their latest Business class product, Qsuite, which they claim as First in Business.

Qsuite is now offering on selected flights operated by Boeing B777s and Airbus A350s.

Using the Easy Deals to experience Qsuite is a way to maximize the value of Qmiles. Destinations offering Qsuite in this promotion include Bangkok (BKK), Colombo (CMB), Beijing (PEK), Stockholm (ARN), Zurich (ZRH), and between Sao Paulo (GRU) and Buenos Aires (EZE). But be aware that not all flights to these destinations offer Qsuite.

Bottom Line

This promotion is great considering the number of routes it covers and some of the destinations is quite popular. However, historically Qmiles is not so valuable, especially when redeeming Qatar Airways flights, compared with using American Airlines. With an up to 50% fewer miles, Qmiles becomes more valuable but may still not be the best way to redeem Qatar award tickets.

Do you plan to take advantage of this promotion? If so, on which route and how worth is it?
