If you’ve been hunting for the elusive Qatar Airways Qsuite, get your points ready because we’ve found widespread availability for this excellent business class product through the end of next year.
This is a book now, think later situation.
If you have points available and find dates that work for you, we highly recommend booking quickly, as these seats likely won’t last — and you can always cancel with little to no penalty.
This availability was first spotted by findflightsforme. Let’s take a look at the details.
Book Qsuites to the Maldives and Beyond With Points
Qatar Airways Qsuites are widely regarded as one of, if not the best business class products in the sky.
And what makes them even better, is that they are bookable with points and miles and very reasonable rates. Heck, you can even use JetBlue TrueBlue Points to book Qsuites!
By using American Airlines’ award calendar, we are seeing 1-2 seats available from major hubs (and even smaller, local airports with connections) across North America to Doha through October 2024.
Plus, since AA uses region-based pricing, you can tack on an additional flight to the Maldives for no extra cost!
- Class: Business
- Routes: Atlanta (ATL), Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Dallas (DFW), Los Angeles (LAX), Louisville (SDF), Miami (MIA), Montreal (YUL), New York (JFK), Orlando (MCO), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA), Washington, D.C. (IAD), and more
- Dates: November 2023 to October 2024
- Rates: Starting at 70,000 miles one-way
Business class flights from the U.S. to the Maldives can often cost around $10,000+, so being able to book those same seats with points and miles is an incredible deal.
As you can see, there is plenty of availability, which is easy to spot when searching via AA.com and selecting the calendar function for award flights.
This example is nonstop from MIA to DOH, but the price would remain the same whether you added an additional flight to MLE or not. So you might as well head to the Maldives!
This type of availability certainly won’t last. So if you see something that you like, book it.
Best Ways to Book
The least expensive way to fly Qatar Airways Qsuites from the U.S. (without an active transfer bonus) is by using American Airlines AAdvantage miles which would cost 70,000 + $41.80 for a one-way flight to the Maldives.
You can search for availability 1 month at a time on AA.com. Just look for the green 70k icons.
American miles can be difficult to earn since the only transfer partner is Bilt Rewards. However, there are some solid offers on co-branded cards like the refreshed Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite Mastercard® so you can be ready for the next award alert.
Alternatively, you can book with British Airways Executive Club, Qatar Airways Privilege Club, or JetBlue TrueBlue starting at 70,000 points + $100 in taxes and fees.
Since these programs are transfer partners with American Express, Chase, Citi, and more, earning these points is much easier.
The only downside is that if you are adding an additional flight past Doha, the price will jump up a bit.
If you happened to have previously boosted your balance with a transfer bonus, booking with Avios could come out cheaper.Hot Tip:
