Qatar Airways flash sale
Qatar have launched a business class sale from the UK and Europe but I wouldn’t get overly excited! These are not great deals but if you need to book now then it is obviously worth a look. The sale only last until midnight tonight (31 October) so you haven’t got long to make up your mind.
Black Friday usually yields some great Qatar fares (23 November) although with the last 6 months having virtually nothing of interest it is hard to predict what will happen.

No 1 lounges – new lounges and offer ends today
No 1 lounges are opening some new lounges in the UK. The first is The House which Etihad will be using (it’s their old lounge) It celebrates some of the best British produce, from award-winning English wines and cheeses, to a variety of London gins, and is now open at Heathrow, Terminal 4.
On 1st November Birmingham Airport – the Clubrooms will open. This is built in the style of a modern members’ club and is available to guests 12 years and over. It will have à la carte dining, great airport views and the best access to most of the airport’s gates. I generally enjoy Clubrooms as they offer decent wines and champagne plus an elegant atmosphere.
The final lounge will be My Lounge which is a much more relaxed, social lounge at Gatwick’s South Terminal from December. The loft-inspired lounge combines modern design with the relaxed feeling of a home. It offers a grazing menu and self-serve bar, a games room and airside views from the only outside terrace at Gatwick.
There is a promotional code for bookings up to the end of 2018 when booked by the end of today, 31 October. Use the promotional code THANKYOU5 to get an additional £5 per guest off at each of the new lounges, or 10% of a booking at any of the other lounges. You can book your lounge visit here.
If you belong to a lounge membership scheme, you can use the code RESERVE20 to save 20% a reservation at any of the lounges where your card is accepted. Find out more about cardholder reservations here.
