News in brief:
£10 – £100 off Qatar Airways promotional code
Qatar Airways has launched a new discount code which is exclusive to small travel sites like HFP.
You save £10 on discounted economy tickets, £30 on full fare economy tickets and £100 on business class fares.
It is valid to 33 destinations (listed here) from any UK departure point. You must book before 16th December for travel up to 14th November 2016.
My review of the Qatar Airways A380 First Class service from Doha will hopefully appear on HFP in the next 10 days or so. There are some photos of the astonishing First Class lounge in Doha on our Instagram feed where I described it as “one of the defining structures of our time, a statement of intent. Not just the most impressive lounge but one of the most impressive buildings you will ever enter of any sort”. I’d had a few glasses of Krug when I wrote that, but I meant it!
Starwood / Design Hotels competition – we already have a HFP winner
I have written before about the new Starwood partnership with Design Hotels. To promote it, Starwood has launched a ‘daily play’ competition.
It has been running for a few days already and one HFP reader has already won 10,000 SPG points, which I value at £150!
The link to play is here. There are daily ‘instant win’ prizes and every entry gets you a spot in a grand draw for 50,000 SPG points and five free night vouchers. You can play each day until 18th December.
