Qatar Airways are currently running an aggressive promotion for flights departing from multiple airports here in the UK. The main gulf carriers (Qatar, Emirates and Etihad) regularly try to undercut each other, but this time Qatar Airways have launched a different promotion – discount business class return flights for £975. Emirates fly the same route for over £3000.
This year Qatar Airways finished in 2nd place in the 2016 Skytrax World Airline Awards. They are an excellent airline to fly with, especially in business class. Their most recent addition to the fleet, the Airbus A380, even has an onboard bar, which I feel is currently the best bar in the sky, and certainly out trumps any other onboard bar, such as the offering on Virgin Atlantic flights. Aside from the bar, Qatar also have an excellent inflight service from the quality of the seats and beds, right through to the exceptional meal selection.
The flights have a connection in Doha, about a 1 hour flight away from Dubai. Normally a connection is ‘wasted time’ but their tickets allow access to the Qatar business in Doha. This is one of the most extravagant airline lounges in the world.
Flights are available from August 2016 right through to May 2017, but excludes specific dates around Christmas and New Year. Departure airports including London Heathrow, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh.
Business class to Dubai flights are available directly on the Qatar Airways site. Edit dates to suit your preference.
