We are very excited to announce a brilliant prize competition courtesy of our friends at Qatar Airways.  It is, depending on where the winner wants to go, potentially the biggest flight giveaway we have ever done.

You could win two Business Class tickets from any UK Qatar Airways airport (London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Cardiff) to almost any destination on the Qatar Airways network*

Given that Qatar Airways has an extensive network of destinations, this means Bangkok, Tokyo, the Maldives or even Sydney could be on the agenda if you win this fabulous prize.

About Qatar Airways

We’ve always enjoyed travelling with Qatar Airways due to its excellent in-flight experience, but you don’t need to take our word for it!  Your fellow HFP readers voted Qsuite as the ‘Best Business Class Seat and Service” in the Head for Points 2019 Travel & Loyalty Awards (a picture from our winner’s dinner is below).

Qsuite, with its acclaimed design and fully closing door, has become a real game-changer.  You can find out more about Qsuite on the Qatar Airways website here.

Qatar 2 HFP Awards 2019

Rob wrote an extensive review of Qsuite back in October (read it here) and we’ve also covered the herringbone business class seat found on Boeing 787-8, A380 and part of the A350 fleet.

Qatar Airways flies to over 160 destinations so the network is very extensive.  If you win our competition you will be spoilt for choice.  There are several interesting new routes starting in 2020 including Siem Reap (Cambodia), Osaka (Japan) and top of my own list, Cebu (the Philippines).

You’d think that all of these accolades could come with sky high prices.  However, there are excellent deals to be found with Qatar Airways, particularly for anyone willing to start outside the UK.  Rhys wrote about Qatar Airways’ low Business Class fares from Oslo a few weeks ago and these are typical of what is out there if you are willing to dig around.

You can visit the Qatar Airways website to find out the latest offers and destinations.

Good luck.

    All those restrictions. I demand a refund of my HfP subscription forthwith if not sooner! 😀😀

    So what that the dates don’t suit everyone. There have been other competitions and events that you’ve run that have excluded some people for various reasons.

    • TGLoyalty says:

      Yesterday’s article set up expectations that the competition doesn’t deliver.

      The prize is indeed extremely restrictive (it’s pretty much Asia only since they fly to about a handful of destinations other than that) at a time when lots of people don’t want to travel to Asia. To top it off you can’t enjoy any time in the lounges at LHR/DOH or at your destination when you return.

    • Anna says:

      Quite – I’m not going to enter because I can’t travel at such short notice even if I were to win, but at some point I will be able to. Until then though, I have so many fabulous trips planned this year thanks to HFP, I really don’t mind! (F to Miami at Easter, 5 nights at the Westin Resort Grand Cayman plus bank holiday weekend at the Langley on Bonvoy points and that’s just between now and May). Thanks HFP!

      • Anna says:

        I’m agreeing with ChrisC, by the way!

        • ChrisC says:


          Rob has corrected a typo so the restriction in May is the 22nd not the 2nd so opening up a lot more dates

          i’m not entering becaause I already have trips booked but good luck to those that do.

          And to reiterate not every competition – and every offer – will be suitable for every person and I won’t criticise Rob for that.

  • Andi says:

    Why not just tell us the blackout periods so we can work out for sure if we can go .Seems pointless entering if I can’t actually use the tickets – ‘including but not limited to’ is pretty useless information. The T&Cs in the article say 2nd-31st May but in the widget say 22-31 May 2020 (which is half term in the UK so makes more sense than a whole month). Please can someone clarify?

    I was really excited about this competition yesterday and have no travel currently planned from July but with work and personal travel commitments only have about 1 week in May I could get off before the end of June. The prize is amazing but I wouldn’t be surprised if the restrictive dates and lack of lounge access impact the goodwill Qatar could earn from such a competition.

  • April Watson says:

    Would love the chance to win these tickets would be pretty amazing 😊

  • Steve Cooleman says:

    Promotion not available in your region… I guess Europe is no longer part of the UK 😉

  • lumma says:

    The no lounge access clause seems a bit over the top, when it’s a major part of flying business class, especially with the potential long layover in Doha – I wonder if you can join the fast track security queue in Doha or if you need to queue up with the riff raff?

    • Rob says:

      First time I did a flight review for Qatar I only got into the London lounge by tailgating with a group of travel agents having a show-around. I got into Doha OK. I got into Ras Al Khaimah OK (contract staff though). At Doha on the return I was banned!

      We will see what we can do about London.

  • Sandra says:

    OT: For those who were wondering if an advance rate would trigger the latest Amex/Hilton offer, I booked and paid in advance on 3rd Feb for a stay at the end of March and the £75 credit hit my Amex account today.

  • David S says:

    I’m on holiday (flied with Qatar) but the form stops me entering as I’m not in the UK at present

  • Aston100 says:

    The restrictions are quite amusing.
