Qatar Airways that is expected to officially join the Oneworld Alliance in October (read more here) sent an email to their Privilege Club members about the ability to earn Qmiles on British Airways flights starting on September 2, 2013.
The ability to use miles for British Airways flights will begin on October 1, 2013. You can read more about this partnership here. There is nothing available on BA’s website about this new partnership with Qatar.
You cannot earn Qpoints from British Airways flights before Qatar joins the Oneworld Alliance.
The number of Qmiles that you earn from discounted economy fares is rather low at 25% of the miles flown . All these lower booking classes earn full mileage if credited to American’s program.
The integration of Qatar Airways to Oneworld Alliance continues. Let’s hope that the joining date of early October materializes.
