Paris to Qatar routing

Paris to Qatar routing

  1. Anonymous

    Hi! So I am planning on booking a flight from paris to qatar on the A380 in first class with advantage miles but my final destination is Dubai. Is paris to Qatar and then Dubai on qatar a legal routing? Also if so is it possible to extend that layover to spend time in the Al Safwa first class lounge?

    Thank you very much !

    Hello Alan

    Yes it’s a legal routing, but DOH-DXB is operated by a 2 cabin plane sold as Y and F.

    Had it been a J award you would have needed to call AA to get the F segment DOH-DXB at J price.

    Max layover is 24 hours from the time the Paris flight land in Doha, there need to be F award space on the DOH-DXB route the next day of course.

    One more question, do you know if they close the first class lounge at all? My flight gets in at 12 and I want to schedule an 8 hour layover to be able to sleep a bit and avoid staying at a hotel.

    No all the QR lounges in DOH is open 24/7.

    Try getting one of the sleeping rooms in the lounge that Lucky mentions if you are staying the night.

    Yes indeed you have to call, my fault was thinking about another airline. Need some caffeine, sorry

    You can try hitting the A350 / B787 flights to DXB if you’re lucky enough on timings. 🙂
