To celebrate Valentine’s Day, there are some cheap Qatar Business Class fares available right now – as long as you book 2 tickets. Return Business Class flights from Europe to Asia start at just ~£990!
You need to look for these on the Qatar Airways site to find the best deals, and availability seems reasonable on most routes for February/March – April 2018 and between September – December 2018 too.
Where can I go?
There are lots of options, so let us know in the comments if you spot anything good that we’ve missed, but these are some of the highlights:
Sofia – Shanghai: £990 per person
Helsinki – Krabi (Thailand): ~£1065
Other options include:
- Stockholm to Singapore: £1100
- Oslo to Bali Round Trip: £1183
- Helsinki to Tokyo: £1240
Where should I credit cheap Qatar Business Class flights?
These fares all seem to book into fare class ‘R’, which means you should earn 100%-125% of flown miles, depending on the programme you decide to credit to.
For many readers, I would suggest that British Airways Executive Club (BAEC) is a good option for these particular flights. Although some of the other types of Miles available are more valuable than Avios, you’re not going to miss out on a huge additional haul here, and the real beauty of crediting cheap Qatar Business Class flights to BAEC is the amount of status ‘Tier Points’ you rack up.
Helsinki to Tokyo (via Doha), for example, would earn each passenger ~19,500 Avios and 560 Tier Points – almost enough for BAEC Silver status.
JAL Mileage Bank could also be a good option if you’re into more ‘exotic’ Miles.
Is Qatar Airways Business Class any good?
Excellent – and for the price, I would say world-leading. You can read some great reviews over at InsideFlyer Germany (just use Google translate):

- Review: Qatar Airways Boeing 777 Business Class Doha – Bangkok
With Qatar Airways you have the chance to enjoy what I believe are some of the best Business Class seats in the sky. On board the Airbus A380, the A350 and the Boeing 787, Qatar Airways has installed a 1-2-1 reverse herringbone configuration.
There is also now the incredible QSuites too on some routes!
The Boeing 777 has a 2-2-2 configuration with lie flat seats, just like most Airbus A330s. However, on a small number of Airbus A330-200s you will find seats that are not completely flat.
Cheap Qatar Business Class sales are a regular feature these days, but don’t let familiarity lead to contempt – they remain superb deals!
