Qatar vs Etihad Business AA surcharge
Due to the third region award booking rules when booking with AA points, flying from LHR – DOH – SYD is 60k points (QR) in J, whilst LHR – AUH – SYD is 75K points (EY) in J. Do you guys think that it is worth the extra 15k points to be on EY’s business class on the 388 vs QR’s J on their 333 and 77w? I read Lucky’s post on this, but what do you guys think when comparing the cost?
Qatar operates to Sydney?
[USER=26]@Alvin | YTHK[/USER] They start March 1 I believe.
[USER=79]@Gaurav[/USER] Whoops, missed that. Doesn’t QR fly an A380 to Doha? Actually, either way, 15k miles is pretty valuable for the extra privacy in EY business (while I think QR A380 business looks better, the DOH – SYD leg in a standard fully flat is 14 hours).
