EY or QR First from LHR to AUH

EY or QR First from LHR to AUH

  1. Thenewonw

    Hey

    I do need to take advantage of your extensive travel experience.

    In a couple of weeks I am going on probably my once in a lifetime trip.

    So far we are booked from LHR to AUH to MEL on EY First using AA Miles pre-devaluation. I now am thinking of maybe switching to QR First for the segment LHR to AUH via DOH, if award space opens up (there are only two seats available regarding seat alerts).

    Why am I thinking of switching QR?

    – It would give us the chance to experience two different First Class products
    – I have read that the QR lounge in LHR is better than the EY Lounge
    – We would have the chance to experience the First Class lounge in Doha.

    What would you do? Stick to the plan and fly both segments to Melbourne on EY or would you consider switching the first segment to QR?

    Cheers

    If the LHR-DOH leg is on an A380 and the AUH-MEL is on an A380, then yeah it would be worth the switch. However, since there is also the DOH-AUH leg your trip is now extended a bit s0 remember to factor that in.

    With only two seats left in F, I would be surprised if Qatar released them to award space though.

    You may also have issues changing from an EY-only pre-deval award to an EY+oneworld award. I haven’t tried that particular combo yet, so just a warning.

    thank you for your reply. Both legs on EY and the one leg on QR as well are supposed to be operated by an A380. Sorry, I could have mentioned that ๐Ÿ˜‰

    We would have plenty of time I think, as the second leg is departing at AUH at 22 pm.

    Hi Tiffany,

    Thx for your input.

    I also doubt that these two seats will become available. However, if they do I want to be prepared ๐Ÿ˜‰

    OK, I wasn’t aware of that and that it might cause problems. As I have the EY leg already booked, I would just give it a try.

    What came to my mind is, that AA might not be able to ticket the leg, if e.g. the space becomes available on very short notice (e.g. 24 h) before scheduled departure.

    Do you have any thoughts on that?

    Cheers

    The time until departure doesn’t matter — as long as you’re before the check-in cutoff it should be fine ๐Ÿ™‚
