Good Qatar Airways Asia deals still running – earn 560 BA tier points

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

I wanted to remind you that the attractive Qatar Airways business class deals to Asia that we’ve seen in recent weeks are still running until the end of April.

You will need to go to Scandinavia to start your trip which is admittedly a pain.  On the upside, you will be getting a good price and, perhaps more importantly, earning 560 British Airways tier points.

The best deals are:

Stockholm to Bangkok – SEK 15,700 (£1,300) return

Stockholm to Hong Kong – SEK 15,460 (£1,260) return

Oslo to Singapore – NOK 14,700 (£1,330) return

There is very good availability for these fares.  In general:

they are available for much of 2019 and early 2020, except for Christmas week, as long as you fly out on Mon-Thu

you would earn 560 British Airways tier points due to the change of plane in Doha (140 points x 4 flights)

Qatar Airways deals to Asia

With multiple daily flights on each route, you can pick from various seating options:

Boeing 777-300ER – you would either get the older 2-2-2 seating I reviewed here or a refurbished one with the amazing new Qsuite (reviewed here).

A350-900 –  the herringbone seat which I reviewed here, albeit in its 787 incarnation, which is very impressive.  Qatar has a special website showing off this seat which you’ll find here.  Some A350-900 aircraft also have Qsuite.

Boeing 787-9 – see here for details of the seat there, which is also good.   I reviewed the 787-8 seat here.

The Boeing 787-9 and A350-900 seat is very close to the same seat as you will get with the new British Airways Club Suite, albeit without the door.

If you don’t have a credit card with 0% foreign exchange fees, your best option for paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold which offers triple points – 3 per £1 – when you book flight tickets in a foreign currency.  This is because the transaction triggers the ‘double points for airline spend’ and the ‘double points for foreign spend’ bonuses.

The Qatar Airways booking site is here.  You need to book by 30th April.
