36 Hours Left: Qatar Biz <$1500 R/T Scandinavia to S.E. Asia/NZ

Qatar Airways has a quick sale running. And by Quick, I’m saying the rest of today and tomorrow, so if you’re interested you need to jump on this deal like you know how to fly…in business…for really cheap 😉 Let’s look at a few different options and the fare terms and conditions.

Terms and conditions:

  • Sale period Today and July 5th
  • Travel between July 4th and Sept 2017
  • Booking Class W for econ and R for business

Flyertalk user Rashadik found this deal from Stockholm to Singapore…$1410

If you’ve never been to Singapore, you should go. It’s one of my favorite cities.

It’s serviced by 787s and A350s…


I haven’t personally flown Qatar’s A350 If you’re interested in seeing how dope the product is you can check out GSTP 360 tour

YHBU has a list of deals from CPH to Auckland worth checking out as well. 

This means that you’d be taking the World’s longest flight from Doha to Auckland…one that Zac from Points from the Pac reviewed earlier this year. It’s serviced by a 777-200LR and features a similar business class to what I flew from Hanoi to Bangkok

Don’t live near Stockholm or Copenhagen? You can position there.

Read our Monkey Miles Monday Memo where we talk about how positioning for flights can save tons of money and be a fun adventure.

You could arrive a day or two ahead of your flight and check out Stockholm. Such a beautiful city and I’d highly recommend the Hilton Stockholm

Credit to AA to earn tons of RDM, EQM, and most of all…the EQD ( Elite Qualifying Dollars )

The flight from ARN to SIN ( 13460 miles r/t ) would earn the following:

  • In ‘R’ business class
    • RDM : 13460
    • EQM: 20,190 ( 1.5 x 13,460)
    • EQD: $2712 (13,460 * 0.2)

Historically 60k is a very, very good offer. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back. .

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on.
