Qatar and Qatar Privilege Club

Qatar Privilege Club is the loyalty scheme for Qatar Airways. The articles below outline the best ways of earning and spending your points if you are based in the UK. I also review the First Class and business class service on Qatar's A380, Boeing 787 and Boeing 777 aircraft and the Qatar Premium Lounges in Heathrow Terminal 4 and the new Hamad International Airport in Doha.
