Roundtrip flights for cheaper positioning
I live in Doha (Qatar) and want to position my flights out of Cairo (Egypt) on Qatar Airways. I was curious if you may have positioned yourself and caught a roundtrip flight, eg. fly Doha to Cairo and catch the same plane (2 hours later) for the start of my return journey (therefore I am technically transiting in Cairo) but on a separate ticket.
I don’t intend taking checked luggage and am happy to check-in online for my 2nd flight from Cairo to Doha.
Is it possible? What are your thoughts and suggestions?
Yes, that should be fine. I’ve transited CAI on separate tickets before.
