This one is for all the AvGeeks out there. You may have already tried Qatar’s QSuites and you probably hopped on Etihad’s Apartment when it came around … and these days you’re jonesing for something new.

Well, this is for you. We’ve found an incredible deal that lets you try not 1, but 2 phenomenal first class products for just 50,000 miles.

Let’s take a look at everything you should know!

Fare Details

These routes are sold by American Airlines and operated by a combination of Oneworld partner airlines: Qatar Airways and Japan Airlines. The routing is from Doha (DOH) to Bangkok (BKK), and onward to Tokyo (HND).

Doha to Bangkok is one of the few routes that still features Qatar Airways’ first class product, which is a fun treat for any AvGeek. It’ll also give you access to the Al Safwa First Lounge at Hamad International Airport in Doha.

The Bangkok to Tokyo leg is operated by Japan Airlines. JAL’s first class product is a little dated at this point, but it’s still fantastic — especially if you’re into Champagne.

  • Class: First
  • Routes: Doha (DOH) to Tokyo (HND)
  • Dates: September 2023 to April 2024
  • Rates: As few as 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles one-way

We found tons of availability from Doha (DOH) to Haneda (HND) from September 2023 to April 2024, so finding a seat shouldn’t be difficult. You can also do this in reverse — there are plenty of awards available.

You’ll want to double-check the details for these flights while you’re looking. In some instances, we saw availability only in business class or economy on the second leg.

It goes without saying that spending 50,000 miles for 2 first class flights is an insanely good deal.

All told, you’ll be spending a little over 12 hours in the air! For reference, here’s the cash price for these flights:

Best Ways To Book

These flights will need to be booked via American Airlines to score the best deal. If you’re running low, either transfer points from Bilt Rewards at a 1:1 ratio or from Marriott Bonvoy at a 3:1 ratio with a 5,000-mile bonus for every 60,000 points you transfer.

Pay the taxes and fees with a card such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which will entitle you to its strong slate of travel insurance products during your trip. This means that if your bag gets lost, you end up delayed, or your trip is interrupted, you’ll be covered.

Final Thoughts

You know you want to book this. Heck, we already did! Book now and cancel later if it comes to that — we don’t expect this deal to last!
