Qatar flash sale – £1360 for UK to Auckland/Cape Town business class & other bargains from £1050

Qatar A380 business class review LondonQatar business class

I don’t normally do a separate extra post for Qatar sales but this has one of the best UK bargains I have seen! At these prices (assuming they are not a mistake fare) they won’t be there for long. If it is a mistake, Qatar usually will honour bookings but just in case, I wouldn’t book anything non-refundable connected with the flights for up to 7 days.

London Gatwick also has some reasonable fares too which Qatar will start flying from on 22 May with a B787. As usual, there are some good deals from outside the UK too. These will all get you at least 560 tier points return in business class, only 40 tier points away from BA Executive Club Silver which would get lounge access along with other benefits.

  1. Brilliant find! Snapped up one in October.Thanks ever so much as always.

    • That’s fantastic news Nick. Always pleased when a reader gets a bargain. Just wish there was something that works for me. Just been to Auckland andf already booked for Hong Kong!

  2. Got ARL to KUA for £1300

    That’s for two people so Qatar seem to still be offering two person discounts on certain routes

    As we both love Sweden I’m happy to actually do ex EU as were going to tag in a day in Stockholm, plus an overnight in Doha which is actually quite a nice city

  3. Michele, I am so pleased I discovered you about 6 months ago. We are just returning back from a fantastic holiday in Thailand having booked a £900 Qatar Krabi deal from Stockholm that you alerted us to in November. I booked the amazing £1,360 to NZ deal just after you emailed it. Keep up the great work! John & Joanie

    • Hi John. Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know about how you got some bargains. I love hearing when people manage to get the best prices. The Auckland deal was amazing, I just wish I could have justified buying one myself but I’ve just been!

Have your say
