QFF redemptions from Doha - not possible?

Discussion in 'Qantas Frequent Flyer Program' started by theevilmuppet, Mar 20, 2017.

  1. Hi all,

    Attempting to redeem flights from DOH to anywhere via QFF is either impossible or requires a call to Qantas to achieve.

    Is there some term or condition I've missed somewhere that prohibits redeeming awards from QR's home base?

    Thanks to all who reply.

    Don't know why, but it does require a call for an award flight from DOH ( no fee). To DOH is ok on line.

    yeah, their system is broken. Certain cities don't work, yet if I search SYD-DOH return, I can see flights from DOH-SYD.

    Qantas tells me it's because it doesn't have the right to sell tickets ex-Qatar, in QAR. When you call you pay in AUD.

    Booking using QFF points to/from cities QF don't fly to

    Hi guys,

    Confusing title but what I've found is, basically the QF booking engine makes it difficult to book award flights to/from cities that it doesn't fly it's own metal to.
    Such as say you wanted to get award seats on QRs EZE-GRU for example.

    What I'm looking to do is book award seats on EKs MLE-CMB, why, well basically because the award availability is wide open, and also because it's very cheap to fly paid J/F out of MLE direct, but very cheap to fly J/F out of CMB.

    So does anyone know how I can book just this sector only ?

    Can this be done online ?

    If I have to call up will they waive the phone booking fee ?

    Thanks

    Phone QFF up and book.
    Of course requests myst be on a OW carrier.
    They probably will waive the fee.

    Try it as a multi leg booking and it might work. Since you aren't flying direct to CMB anyway you lose nothing trying that.

    I found this has worked for my in the past instead of system trying to book multi segment with one city pair in the search engine.

    I've tried it as a multileg and found the availability but how do I actually go ahead and book it without the booking the other sectors ?

    Sorry I misread the starting point. Yes the definitely won't work online. Too long a day.
