Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Qatar Airways has shared the details of a 2-for-1 deal with deep discounts on business-class fares to destinations around the world. Right now, if you buy a pair of business-class tickets you’ll get fares that are vastly cheaper than usual. Some of the best deals we’re seeing include New York (JFK) to Singapore (SIN) for $2,110 round-trip per person and Chicago (ORD) to Delhi (DEL) for $2,161 round-trip per person. Bookings must be made by November 7 and travel must be completed between November 15 and June 15, 2017, with a minimum 7-day stay required.
Qatar Airways has a great business class product which TPG enjoyed in an episode of TPGtv — the lie-flat seats were even big enough to fit all 6’7″ of TPG comfortably! You can credit mileage earned from these flights to Oneworld Alliance partners such as American Airlines or British Airways.
