Qatar Airways Buys 9.61% Stake In Cathay Pacific

Qatar Airways continues its airline shopping spree this time acquiring 9.61% stake in Cathay Pacific. The airline already owns 20% of IAG (parent of British Airways, Iberia, Aer Lingus, Vueling and Level), 10% of LATAM and 49% stake in Meridiana.

REMINDER: British Airways Blocks Cathay Pacific Online Award Availability Approximately Within A Week Of Departure – May Be Available Calling

9 Comments

British Airways started selectively blocking partner awards from close in online bookings last year and merely returns a message that no awards availability exists when that is not the case.

Cathay Pacific

The airline that is mostly affected with this is Cathay Pacific (S7 was briefly too) and its routes within Asia-Pacific that are almost all blocked within a week of departure. British Airways claims that this is to combat “fraud” but I would assume that the real reason is cash.
