Today’s Airfare of the Day goes to Qatar Airways midweek business class excursion round trip fares between Sweden/Norway and Australia.
A Qatar Airways Airbus A321 on Friday December 8, 2017, caught fire while WiFi equipment was being installed to the aircraft.
The fire burnt through the roof as you can see from the photos that were taken on the spot. I would assume that the airline needs to write off this frame due to excessive damage.
Qatar Airways Privilege Club has launched an interesting bonus Qmiles and Tier upgrade/extension promotion for members residing in the UK and Ireland.

Qatar Airways has sent out offers to select Privilege Club members with three offers of which two are targeted (likely open for everyone) and the 10% off coupon one is open for all.
Qatar Airways also launched their Cyber Weekend offers on Friday for travel ex-Europe through late 2018 that must be booked by midnight local time on November 27.
Simultaneously they released 15% off coupon valid for both economy and business class travel but only for travel by December 15 (gotta be fast!).
The topic of this weeks Fabulous Friday is about John’s recent offer from Qatar Airways to upgrade his Economy Class reservation to Business Class at really good rates.
A female passenger who spied on her husbands cellphone content during a Qatar Airways flight caused the flight to divert after she found evidence of being cheated on and caused a major disruption on board.
This week Whine Wednesdays deals with annoying “Online Payment Verification Emails” that Qatar Airways still seems to be sending to some that purchase tickets from their website.
Years past, it often was a challenge to use credit cards to pay on airline websites and presenting the card used to pay for the ticket was required when checking in.
Qatar Airways, the airline in a permanent state of special sales, recently launched their 20thAnniversary Business Class Companion sale (John discussed this sale a few days ago).
This sale is valid for travel through October 31, 2018 (travel around Christmas and New Years is excluded) for 2 (and up to 5) round trip business class tickets purchased before November 10, 2017.
Qatar Airways will introduce their fifth destination in Thailand as they announced a 4x weekly rotation to Pattaya, starting on the 28th January 2018.
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.
Cathay Pacific hasn’t done too well lately due to badly timed fuel hedges at wrong prices that they had to write down. Air China owns 29.99% stake in the airline and there has been speculations that they might would like to increase their stake and perhaps even merge.
Qatar Airways has launched 10% off discount campaign that is valid for flights flown between October 23 – March 31, 2018.
