No Business Class on Qatar Flights
I’m getting ready to book a business class award on Qatar using AAdvantage Miles. I understand that within the US, if there is no business class offered on a flight that I can book in first for no extra miles.
Our flights to and from the US have a business class but the flights to Amman from Doha and back from Beirut do not offer business. I can find availability in First on these flights.
My question is will American put us in first on our business class award ticket?
Well only their A380s have an actual first class cabin so on other aircraft it’s business class marketed as first class. AA should be able to get you that seat and charge you business class. However, I’m not sure if that policy has changed. [USER=7]@Tiffany[/USER]?
There have been reports of AA not being able to process this correctly, but we haven’t run into it one way or the other yet. In theory it should be considered two-cabin, the same as domestic flights in the US.
