Qatar Airways changes.


Recommended Posts

Qatar have changed what's included in their tickets by removing the Flexi, Value, Saver and Promo groups and replacing them with Comfort, Convenience and Classic.  Seat selection is no longer free in the cheapest seats and there may be other changes I've not noticed yet.

In Business Class it's similar with the cheapest tickets not getting to choose their seats and also losing lounge access, which is a bit of a bummer if you don't otherwise qualify.

Not read the article yet, but presumably gold and platinum members would still have free access.

I love Qatar, they're my go to airline, I got narked with them when they changed their frequent flyer program, I was flying with them more, I went  from 2 to 3 trips a year to Thailand but no longer qualified for silver status, so no lounge pass, no priority boarding, no 40kg luggage. I think I used to drink my airfare in free beer alone in the lounges.

Yes but not to the premium lounges, only the lower level ones where they have them, which includes Heathrow, Doha and Bangkok.  (Assuming post Covid when all lounges are open again).

I notice they've lowered the maximum luggage for the cheapest ticket from 30kg to 25kg but I've just found a flight, LGW-BKK on Momondo for £387 in January with unlimited free changes for 2 years.

Just priced up a return trip from UK to Thailand and seat costs vary from around £11 GBP for the cheapest to almost £50 for exit rows, for each of 4 legs.
