Over the weekend, Qatar Airways launched a new Avios sale in which it's offering a bonus of up to 40% on Avios purchases completer by the end of 1 February. One the face of things, this is offering a reasonable deal, but if you're prepared to buy Avios today, a better deal is available.

How to earn Avios on JetBlue’s transatlantic flights

As JetBlue has a partnership with American Airlines, most people who fly with the airline probably credit their flights to either JetBlue's TrueBlue program or to the American Airlines AAdvantage program. For JetBlue's transatlantic flights, however, the AAdvantage program isn't an option and that's where another of the airline's partnerships can suddenly become useful.

Indirectly, British Airways is now a Citi ThankYou transfer partner

An important change that took place in the miles and points world earlier this year had the knock-on effect of making Citi's ThankYou points a little more valuable and it's that knock-on effect that I'll discuss in this article.

Uh-Oh! Qatar Airways Is Changing Its Business Class Fare Structure (Again)

It was only last November when we saw Qatar Airways first introduce its version of an unbundled Business Class fare which no longer offered free seat selection or lounge access as part of its benefits package. Now, less than a year later, Qatar Airways is overhauling its Business Class fare structure once again and the latest changes could spell the end of the line for those of us accustomed to earning valuable elite status by booking the best deals that Qatar Airways offers.

Qatar Airways Is Extending Privilege Club Status & Qcredit Expirations

Qatar Airways has rightly faced a good deal of criticism recently for being less than forthcoming with refunds that passengers are entitled to and for being unnecessarily opaque and hurried when it comes to how it has been dealing with elite status extensions...but the airline is in the road to redemption.

We have already seen IHG Rewards Club lower its elite status thresholds for 2020 and Hilton Honors has also confirmed that it's reviewing its elite status requirements for 2020 but, up until yesterday (and with the exception of Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific), we hadn't heard any of the major airlines making statements about the situation surrounding elite status qualification and elite benefits. Qatar Airways just changed that.

Qatar Airways Makes Negative Changes To Upgraded Tickets

I've always considered Qatar Airways to be the better of the 3 big Middle Eastern carriers - less "bling" than Emirates, less  penny-pinching than Etihad and offering a better Business Class product than both. But now the airline has gone and done something that cheapens the brand and, frankly, doesn't make much sense.
