I’m super bummed because I’m finally flying Q-suites in May with an overnight layover, but it was just beyond the deadline of the last +Qatar promotion. I had set a reminder to check the website for another extension today, since the last promotion ended 1/31. I know you were expecting it would be extended indefinitely.
