Qatar Airways has now been a member of the Oneworld alliance for less than a day. American Airlines has updated the Qatar Airways AAdvantage page (access here) to reflect the alliance status.
The ability to earn award miles and issue miles using AAdvantage has been in place since September.
Now the Qatar Airways eligible fare class chart also includes the number of Elite Qualifying Points (EQP’s) that you earn for various fare classes.
It is good news that Executive Platinum and Platinum members are eligible for 100% bonus on redeemable miles on Qatar Airways flights, as this is not alliance wide benefit. Gold members are eligible for 25% bonus.
American Airlines has also up the information about the double award miles promotion for Qatar Airways flights from November 15 to December 20, 2013, and January 5 to 31, 2014. You can register for this offer here.
There were no breaking news for AAdvantage members for earning on Qatar Airways flights. It is excellent that Executive Platinum, Platinum, and Gold members are eligible to earn status based bonus miles on Qatar.
