Any thoughts on making a 50min layover in DOH (International to International)? Wondering if its too risky as I’ve never transited through DOH airport…
*Note that Qatar offers the itinerary for purchase with this layover.*
Also, if I am booking the itinerary using AA Miles, and AA prices this as a multi-city since there are 3 regions involved, would I have a problem if I’m taking luggage, or will the itinerary booked through AA still ensure my bags go through to the final destination if both flights are on the same record locator?
Note regarding MCT:
Per the AAgent who booked this itinerary for me: “The minimum connection time in DOH is 45min”
I’ve tried to verify this on ExpertFlyer’s MCT Tool and I’m having a hard time figuring out if thats accurate. At first glance, I see International to International flights require 1hr, but there seems to be an exception down below that shows the 45min suggested by the agent.
See highlighted section in the screenshot attached.
Thanks in advance for your help!
DOH is the only airport in Qatar so all flights in and out of DOH are international
Agent is correct – 45 minutes min connection time, assuming you are arriving and departing on a QR flight and not heading TO the US or Canada.
For QR-QR connections where your flight out of DOH is to Canada or the US, an hour is needed. If your flight to DOH is on an airline other than QR and are heading on a QR flight to US/Canada, an hour and 25 minutes is required.
David, thanks (once again) for the prompt response!
To clarify, the itinerary is MIA-DOH-DPS with a QR-QR Connection, so per your comment, I should have nothing to worry about!
