LoyaltyLobby readers often email me about how to get good priced business class tickets. My advise is usually try to score them when the airlines are having their frequent sales.
Middle Eastern and other airlines tend to have companion fare offers for business class tickets in Europe that are very competitively priced.
Qatar Airways is currently having such an offer for travel originating from Spain, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, France, Belgium, Greece, United Kingdom, Italy and Switzerland. The travel period for this offer is from early November until March 31, 2014. There are some blackout dates before Christmas and just after the New Years.
You can access these Qatar Airways offers by visiting the Qatar website here and choosing your country specific website or through your local travel agent.
Fare Display for Barcelona to Bangkok
The all inclusive fare for two is only 1354 euros per person.
There are very good business class deals from Europe to Asia during these regular companion fare sales that happen with most of the airlines.
You should always check the prices from other than your home marker for some extra savings. Sometimes it can be worth positioning to Barcelona or any other city that usually has lower fares.
Qatar Airways is now more interesting for many European frequent fliers due to Oneworld alliance membership. Iberia Plus, British Airways Executive Club and Finnair Plus members can now collect award and elite qualifying miles/tier points on Qatar Airways lights.
