Oddly, nowhere in any of the text that I’ve seen covering this promotion does Qatar Airways say what you have to do to earn the full 10,000 Avios.
Based on prior Qatar Airways promotions, I suspect that an eligible Economy Class booking will earn 5,000 Avios while eligible Business Class and First Class bookings will earn the full 10,000 Avios, but I’m waiting to hear back from Qatar Airways to get this confirmed.
Qatar Airways is now running three European promotions in honor of Black Friday (four promotions if you include the ‘buy Avios and get a 50% bonus’ deal that’s also currently on offer).
Sale fares are now available from all the European cities that Qatar Airways serves, subscribers to the airline’s email list have access to a bonus discount of 5%, and Privilege Club members can earn up to 10,000 Avios when they book a qualifying flight during the promotion period and travel by the end of June next year.
