On Saturday I reported that Qatar Airways have a sale for business class fares when 2 people travel together and book by 1qatar 787 seat4th February. At the time of going to press the fares appeared to only be available from the UK.

Some Ex EU bargains have now appeared. Thanks to HfP for
the information. If you have never done an Ex EU and are considering it, you can read my beginners guide here.

If you are waiting to book for early 2018 like me, Qatar usually have a major sale around April or May time which would cover this period.

If you are interested you will need to act quickly as the offer must be booked before 15th February for travel completed by 15th December 2017.

I have started a trip in Stockholm and it worked pretty well as there is a decent hotel actually in the terminal if you want to stay overnight. The lounge wasn’t great but they do use a B787 on this route which has the newest seats.

The UK Auckland fare is a good deal compared to the competition. Unless you want to fly China Southern or Thai (£2300-2500) then most carriers are charging around £3300 to Auckland. Qatar’s usual price is normally around £3400. However, you can get it much cheaper during a Qatar sale by starting your flight outside the UK.
