With the blockade between Qatar and the UAE now lifted, you now have another oneworld route to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Qatar Airways is currently selling Dubai and Abu Dhabi for around £1,400 return in Business Class from the UK. This fare is available for the entire year including October half term.
The Heathrow departures should feature the impressive Qsuite in Business Class which we reviewed here.
One downside is that discounted Business Class cash tickets on Qatar Airways no longer come with lounge access in Doha. If you have British Airways status, you can use one of the secondary lounges. Qatar Airways is currently using Terminal 5 at Heathrow.
These flights will earn 360 tier points return in British Airways Executive Club (140 + 40 + 40 + 140) due to the Doha connection.
