AA Miles to the middle east
Dear Experts! I am looking to use AA miles to fly to Jordan in business. I see quite a lot of good availability from ORD on Qatar to Doha.
Would American then let me connect to a Royal Jordanian flight to Amman?
I also see Qatar flights from Doha to JOrdan but they only have economy and first class. Would this still be classified as a business award as they have no business class cabin on this small flight?
The earliest connection departs the next morning. Does Qatar provide a hotel?
American considers Qatar and Jordan in the same region for purposes of award travel so you can book a connection on Royal Jordanian, if there is award space.
Might take some work but the agent should be able to get the DOH-AMM flight in First to price as business class.
Qatar will not provide a hotel for an overnight layover. Most airlines never provide hotels for overnight layovers. The few airlines that do require that you book the flight directly from their airline, not via partners.
Thanks David. Appreciate your answer. As always!!
