Qatar Airways has brought back a promotion that we've seen it publish in the past with the airline offering a 10% discount on bookings made through its mobile app. The discount is only being offered through 19 September so there isn't much time to make plans, but with both Business Class and Economy Class cabins included in this offer, this could be a great chance to make some easy savings.
Qatar Airways is currently running a number of excellent Business Class sales all around the world for travel deep into 2021. A number of the fares available out of various US cities are well worth a closer look, especially if you're looking to book one of the world's Business Class cabins and are looking to pick up a considerable number of credits towards American Airlines AAdvantage status.
Australia isn't exactly a destination that's welcoming visitors right now and Melbourne isn't exactly a destination that a lot of us would consider traveling to at this moment in time (even if we could) but with great availability into June 2021, this amazing Business Class fare may still be very tempting to some.
Qatar Airways has been running a flash sale for the past few days in which it has been encouraging customers to book flights using its mobile app. The flash sale is offering bonus miles and a 10% discount on Qatar Airways flights worldwide but there are less than two days left to book.
Back in June, Qatar Airways announced its return to four major US cities and, as of today, the gulf carrier now operates on six transatlantic routes to the United States. Starting tomorrow, 12 August, Qatar Airways will begin boosting frequencies on its existing US routes and, from September, the carrier will restart services to two more US cities.
In a move that's almost certain to polarize opinion, Qatar Airways has modified the health and safety rules enforced onboard its aircraft to include a requirement for Economy Class passengers to wear both a mask and a visor for the duration of the flight. Business Class passengers will continue to be asked to wear a mask and/or shield at their own discretion.
Qatar Airways offers arguably the best all-around Business Class product in the world and it's a product that's better than a number of First Class cabins that I can mention. It also currently only offers its own First Class product on its Airbus A380 aircraft which the airline has already said it will be retiring...so will Qatar Airways really introduce a brand new First Class cabin?
Qatar Airways has grown to be the largest airline in the world during the current crisis, primarily due to the fact that it has continued to serve a variety of routes while most other large airlines have dramatically shrunk their capacities. Now, as airlines around the world begin to ramp up their services once more, Qatar Airways has confirmed that it now offers over 270 weekly flights to over 45 destinations...and the numbers keep growing.
Qatar Airways has been the only big Middle Eastern carrier that has kept a number of services operating to the United States throughout the current crisis and now, as the airline enters an eight week period during which it hopes to get as many as 70% of its routes back online, it has announced plans to resume flights to four major US cities.
The CEO of Qatar Airways gave a live interview to a British news channel yesterday afternoon and, as is always the case with Akbar Al Baker, he didn't mince his words and he wasn't short of a few opinions. The interview covered a broad spectrum of aviation issues and Al Baker revisited some old ground, but one of the more interesting revelations to come out of the interview is the fact that Qatar Airways wants to push back deliveries of new aircraft by up to a decade. That's incredible.
