Qatar has a flash sale that is on for 2 days only from today, 25th. There is very little that I would call a decent deal from the UK; however, there are some much better deals from the EU.
None of them is at a level we would have seen a few years ago but based on current pricing there are some deals I would be happy to recommend. I will also include other airlines as I found some good deals from various EU airports while I was searching. I personally don’t see we will see prices drop dramatically until well into next year, although there could be a decent sale at Black Friday, I am not holding my breath.
It’s worth remembering that you can part-pay with Avios for Qatar flights by transferring from your BA account instantly. However, this gives worse value than redeeming for an Avios flight.
Most airports have improved their queues, but there are still a lot of schedule changes going on so I would still encourage building in plenty of time between positioning flights and the first leg of an ex EU. I usually try to get a late flight out the night before and stay overnight. This often gives me time to explore a new city.

The Qatar sale does not seem to specify any travel dates, and most of these fares have plenty of availability. You can find the sale page here.

Thanks Michele for highlighting these offers. Do you happen to know if you must remain airside during those long overnight layovers on Finnair flights?
No you don’t have to. Not sure if you get your bag back with Finnair. There’s a decent Hilton at the airport.
I am unable to find any availability from Sofia to Phuket in Jan of Feb for £1713 or any fare even close what dates are available
Cant really find any of the noted cheap fares. For Late Jan or Feb.
A question about double tier points on BA holiday bookings. I notice on the site that bookings for travel dates in 2022 show ‘double tier points’ but dates in 2023 don’t, although the promotion says that double tier points are valid for travel up to September 2023. As I hope to do a few short breaks to retain my Silver after it ends in April, I wonder if you have clarification on this?
Thanks agaiin for all your great information.
Hi. It’s just BA IT. It often doesn’t show the double tier points. Previously it wasn’t showing them for most Club bookings. I’m pretty sure none of mine did!
So yes they are still valid for the points. As long as you meet the conditions of the offer it’s fine. Good old BA IT again.
