News in brief:
Qatar adds 2nd Heathrow A380
Qatar Airways announced yesterday that they are adding a second A380 aircraft out of Heathrow to Doha from July 1st.
The even better news is that this is replacing an A330 service which features Qatar’s oldest, sloping, business class product. The service will depart Heathrow at 21.30, arriving at 06.10 in Doha. The return will depart Doha at 12.35, landing at 17.55.
Unlike the new Boeing 787 fleet, the A380 aircraft do include a First Class cabin of eight seats (picture below).
As a British Airways partner, you earn Avios and tier points when you fly Qatar and can redeem your Avios points for their flights.
500 Clubcard points with the Amazon Fire TV Stick
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is the Amazon equivalent of Google Chromecast – a small dongle that you plug into a HDMI socket on your TV and use for wireless streaming from your mobile phone or tablet. If you subscribe to Amazon Instant Video you can stream with the Fire TV Stick without requiring any additional device.
What it can and cannot do depends on what phone or tablet you already own. I recommend taking a look at the Tesco site for details.
If you order before May 13th, you will receive 500 bonus Clubcard points. These will convert into 1,200 Avios points or 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles. You can order via Tesco Direct here.
