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.

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.
To be eligible for the discount, you much make the booking on the Qatar Airways mobile website (access it using your smartphone) and use promotional code QRMOBAPP.
