No Show – Checked Bags? – Miles Earned?

    Hi Everyone!

    I am planning to book a flight from Doha to Boston, on Qatar Airways. This would be on a paid ticket. After reading Lucky’s post on cheaper prices on airfares out of Cairo on Qatar Airways, I was hoping to book CAI -> DOH -> BOS, this would enable me to try out the Al Safwa First Lounge, as well as pay a cheaper fare. However, given the current situation in Egypt I would not like to fly there, so my question is: Would I be able to no show the CAI -> DOH leg, check-in my bags at DOH, and use the Al Safwa lounge in DOH, without a no-show fee? Also, as I am based in Hong Kong, I am interested in the cheap fares out of Male on CX, would the same apply here, as in could I skip the MLE -> HKG leg without a fee?

    Thanks for your help.

    No show for the first leg of a ticket results in the entire ticket being cancelled.
