One of the best ways to fly domestically is, unsurprisingly, to fly in First/Business Class and one of the best ways to fly domestic First/Business Class is to book a flight which offers lie-flat seating in its premium cabin(s) - that's why I was pleased to find that I could book American's widebody 767 aircraft for a flight between New York JFK and Miami.
Qatar Airways is undoubtedly one of the best airlines in the world (especially if you're flying in Business Class) and thanks to some of the amazing premium cabin fares that it offers between Europe and Asia it's also one of the more popular airlines too. That's why the news that the airline is launching 8 new routes between March and November 2020 will bring a smile to quite a few people's faces...and to mine in particular thanks to one specific route coming later this year.
British Airways has launched a flash sale for short-haul fares departing from London Heathrow and London Gatwick. The airline has announced that it is selling 350,000 seats for travel between London and Europe for fares no higher than £40 (~$53) each way.
The Qatar Airways Qsuites are considered by many to be one of the very best Business Class products around so it was with great interest that I booked myself on a Qatar Airways A350-1000 (flying between Doha and London Heathrow) to see just exactly how great the world's first Business Class suite really is.
Qatar Airways has gradually been increasing the number of aircraft and number of routes on which it offers its highly acclaimed Qsuites Business Class cabin and 2020 will be the year in which all of the airline's US routes will finally offer passengers Qatar's premium Business Class cabin.
Asiana is one of a number of airlines that haven't enjoyed the best of health in recent years and it has been taking various measures to improve its financial performance. In 2019 we saw the airline scale back its First Class offering by rebranding its most premium cabin as "Business Suites" and removing true First Class dining and services and we saw it axing a number of its less profitable routes as well. Now it looks as if Asiana is scaling back its premium cabin offering between Seoul and New York City.
One of the many benefits that come with the Platinum Card from American Express and the Business Platinum Card from American Express is a statement credit for airline fees charged to the cards and, once a year, cardholders get to choose which airline they wish to nominate as the airline whose fees they'd like to see rebated. Now is that time of year.
It has been a while since I've posted a review of the Qatar Airways A380 aircraft and that's probably because, despite the fact that I fly with Qatar Airways reasonably frequently, I rarely seem to find myself traveling on routes where the airline offers its largest aircraft. On a recent trip to Australia that all changed and I found myself booked on the Qatar Airways whale-jet for the 11+ hour flight between Perth and Doha.
One of the cheaper ways of trying out an international premium cabin product is to find a domestic route on which one of the big international airlines is using a widebody aircraft in full international configuration, and right now that what United has scheduled on one of its routes out of Denver.
The Qatar Airways Qsuites are one of the very best Business Class products in the world and here in the US we're lucky to have the product on offer out of multiple cities around the country. Sadly, it's usually pretty expensive to book Qatar Airways Business Class out of the US so when the cabin is bookable at a notable discount it's definitely newsworthy. Right now is one of those times.
