Qatar Airways - 2 for the price of one

For anyone planning a holiday, Qatar Airways is offering 2 for the price of 1 flights (from Zurich and Geneva) if you book on 6th and 7th April, to celebrate its 100th destination milestone. Bargain! (no I dont work for Qatar airways).

Qatar's site is always slow and .....buggy! I had to give up and go to their local office here in Zurich to book my tickets a month ago.

Re: Qatar Airways - 2 for the price of one

The promotion has been postponed due to a problem with the airline's booking engine. It will (re-)start at midnight tonight (00:00:01, 7 April).

Re: Qatar Airways - 2 for the price of one

The Qatar Airways website now says that the 2-for-1 promotion will be held on 13 & 14 April. So it's been postponed for a second time.

To add to the fun, the "Read More" link from their latest postponement announcement was broken until two minutes ago.

I hope they operate their aircraft better than their publicity machine.

Public relations disaster looming ...

They don't seem to state the dates when you have to book the tickets anymore though.

Can anyone remember?

Or did you mean the dates of travel? They are 01 May 2011 to some time in the middle of June, IIRC. I'll check later.

Re: Qatar Airways - 2 for the price of one

If they cant get a site to work how will they be able to manage to land a plane ?

Not very reassuring.

Re: Qatar Airways - 2 for the price of one

Just did a quick price check from London to HK for the beginning of June.

Web site is working fine; cost was £404 pp (second flight free; taxes still added). The next cheapest price for the same flights is £580, so a saving of around £175 which seems about right, as the taxes make up the rest of the cost nowadays.

Re: Qatar Airways - 2 for the price of one

I may do Geneva - Osaka in May. For 780 CHF pp, it's way too good to pass up. I've always wanted to go to Japan, and Osaka is far from the crisis area.
