Excellent fare for several reasons. First, for the #AviationGeeks out there, you get to fly the longest commercial non-stop service scheduled nowadays (on their B777-200LR), and you get their B787-8 on the ARN-DOH segment.

The second reason only applies if you travel before September 30, 2017: you can take advantage of the free 96 hour visa + free hotel night promotion the airline is running now (John discussed it here).

Things must be bad in Qatar these days for them to give these prices away!
