While overall Qatar Airways doesn’t offer as many great business class fares as they used to out of North America, we have been seeing a good number of deals so far this year.

For example, a few weeks ago I wrote about how Qatar Airways has ~2,000USD roundtrip business class fares from Montreal to Bangkok, allowing you to fly their spectacular Qsuites product the entire way. This is an incredible fare, and is worth considering for anyone in North America wanting to go to Thailand, as it’s still available.

While not quite as good, Qatar Airways now also has very good fares from Montreal to Cape Town. Seeing cheap business class fares to Cape Town is quite rare, and on top of that it can be tough to find award seats.

This is great for those in Canada, but it’s also good for those in the US who don’t mind positioning to Montreal, given all the nonstop flights available to there (many people would have to position to a Qatar Airways gateway anyway).

You can fly roundtrip business class on Qatar Airways from Montreal to Cape Town for ~2,550USD.

If you wanted to, you could also route this via one of Qatar Airways’ US gateways.

You can easily search these fares either on Google Flights or ITA Matrix.

Note that on most dates the Montreal to Doha route features Qsuites, though on some dates it doesn’t. So if booking you’ll ideally want to make sure that the seatmap looks like this…

And not like this…

This is still subject to change, but I’d expect that over time the odds of a flight featuring Qsuites increases, as more planes are configured with these seats.

Montreal to Cape Town roundtrip in business class via Doha covers a distance of 22,000+ flown miles, so if you were crediting to American AAdvantage (for example) you’d earn 33,000+ elite qualifying miles, 4,400+ elite qualifying dollars, and 22,000+ redeemable miles (though if you’re Executive Platinum you’d earn a 120% bonus, for a total of 48,400+ redeemable miles).

Like I said, cheap Qatar Airways business class fares from North America are rare nowadays, so…

If you take advantage of one of these fares, make sure you use a card offering bonus points for airfare purchases. You can earn up to 5x points, which I value at up to 1.7 cents each, for an additional return of 8.5%.

  1. It will be interesting to see how Qatar will deal with routings if tensions between the US and Iran escalate.

    Traveling IAH-DOH-MLE soon and hope it’s not an issue.

  2. @Gary – Ben didn’t say $2538 is ~$2K. He said fares from YUL to BKK a couple of weeks ago were ~$2K

  3. Tried a couple of test bookings and went all the way just before payment, but do not see any link to the seat map for that flight on
    Seatguru shows four possible configs for YUL-DOH for that flight number. eg: July 17 QR0764
    Price is great, only USD 2659. It’s about $6k from my home base MIA.
    What am I missing? Thanks.

  4. Tried both ITA and Google but could not make them price/ show flights YUL-LAX(Air Canada)-DOH-BKK-DOH-LAX-YUL. Shouldn’t LAX work same as IAD? Would love to walk off in LA and throw away rest.

  5. Don’t forget to call Amex international business class fare program to check for a discount here!

    CPT is a fantastic city (as is Montreal) and strongly recommend anyone considering visiting should do it ASAP 🙂 I have had my eye on this fare for a while (it has been off and on at $2,500~ for a few months now)

  6. I was intrigued by this sale and while checking the prices with Qatar for flights to BKK and CPT, I noticed that Turkish Airlines had low airfares to BKK out of YUL as well, lower than Qatar. I moved quickly and snatched 2 return tickets in business class (for March 2020) from YUL to BKK for only US$1,815 (C$2,487)!

  7. I recently bought return IAD-DOH-BOM tickets – both the DC to Doha and return, and Doha to Mumbai and return sectors in Q suites – for $3100. The usual price during the summer season is more than $6000.
