Deal alert: Book Qsuite business class with open award space next spring
We’ve screamed praises of Qatar Qsuite from the rooftops — and it’s not hard to see why.
Qatar Airways’ Qsuite seats come with closable doors. You and a travel buddy can turn your side-by-side lie-flat seats into a double bed; a family of four can book a cluster of seats that allows them to all face each other in a gigantic private suite. Pair this with top-notch service, onboard dining and inflight entertainment, and you have one of the most aspirational premium cabin products in the travel world.
Qatar is currently offering loads of available award space for Qsuite, which is bookable with Qatar Airways Avios and via partners like American Airlines and British Airways. This award space was first reported by Thrifty Traveler Premium.
You’ll find open award space from the U.S. to Doha, Qatar, and an assortment of connecting destinations like Johannesburg and Cape Town, all available next spring.

Maximize your purchase
Make sure to pay award taxes and fees with a card that earns bonus points on airfare and offers travel protections. Some cards that fit the bill include The Platinum Card® from American Express (which gets you 5 points per dollar spent on airfare booked directly with the airline on up to $500,000 spent on these purchases per calendar year), the Chase Sapphire Reserve (which will earn you 3 points per dollar spent on travel) and the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (which will give you 2 points per dollar spent on travel).
