For the next couple of weeks – until 4th June – we are running a great competition in association with Qatar Airways.
One lucky Head for Points reader will win two Economy Class tickets to their choice of Qatar Airways destination!
Whilst the tickets are Economy Class, your booking will be flagged for an upgrade to Business Class subject to availability at check-in. The upgrade will be at the discretion of the check-in staff and so, for simplicity, we are describing the prize as two Economy Class tickets. Hopefully, though, you will end up in something better.
A lot has been happening with Qatar Airways lately and there seems no end to it:
- Back in March Qatar Airways unveiled their impressive new business class Qsuite at ITB which will launch on Qatar’s Heathrow route soon
- Qatar Airways will launch flights from Cardiff in 2018
- From June Qatar Airways will fly from Dublin to Doha and onwards
- The airline has recently launched a 3rd daily flight to Bali from Doha
- Until 30th September, Qatar Airways will give you a free hotel stay if you choose to stop in Doha on the way
Qatar Airways is a member of the oneworld alliance. This means that you will earn Avios points and British Airways tier points when you fly with Qatar Airways, and can also redeem Avios points for Qatar Airways services. (Don’t forget that Qatar Airways also has its own loyalty programme, QMiles.)
We have reviewed Qatar Airways business class on its 777, 787 and A380 incarnations, as well as A380 First Class, and genuinely believe that it deserves its reputation as one of the very best products out there. The new Qsuite in Business Class. launching very soon, will set the bar even higher.
There is one pair of Economy return tickets on Qatar Airways to (pretty much) anywhere to be won with a possible / hopeful upgrade to Business Class on the day.
There are some restrictions on how and where you can go:
Your trip must start and finish in the UK (London, Birmingham, Manchester or Edinburgh). Connecting flights are not included.
You cannot backtrack from Doha. This means that North American destinations, for example, are excluded. The decision of Qatar Airways on what it considers backtracking will be final.
You can only book flights operated by Qatar Airways. Codeshares are not included.
Tickets are strictly non-transferrable. The winner MUST be one of the passengers and both tickets must be booked for travel together.
The winner must book the trip by 20th March 2018 and complete their travel within three months of booking.
There is no guarantee that Qatar Airways will be able to offer the exact date, flight and destination you request. Flexibility may be required, especially at peak periods.
The tickets are Economy tickets with possible upgrade to Business Class at the check-in desk, subject to availability. This upgrade is not guaranteed and will be at the discretion of the check-in agents. Travelling at off-peak periods will maximise your chances of being upgraded.
You are responsible for arranging transfers, accommodation, visas, innoculations, insurance etc for your trip
You will not have to pay any taxes or charges for your tickets
Your tickets will not earn any frequent flyer miles or status points
