Update, 11/8: JetBlue flights are once again bookable online with Qatar Avios, but with significantly higher rates. Luckily, there are still no fuel surcharges on these awards, but mileage rates are much higher than they were, and are downright absurd in some cases.

Congrats to everyone who acted quickly and caused Qatar to lose money at the original rates…some of them were certainly too good to last. Clearly, somebody goofed here.

You can still book AA award bargains at the old rates, though some fuel surcharges apply to those on international flights.

Here is the new JetBlue award chart that I pieced together:

Elephant in the Room:

Let’s start with the elephant in the room.

I’ve been avoiding actively writing about Qatar Airways since the brutal Hamas attacks against Israelis while they were celebrating the holiday of Simchas Torah last month. I certainly wouldn’t fly on Qatar at this point in time. I would usually cover Avios transfer bonuses in depth, but merely included the current Qatar Avios bonus in the roundup here. But these are difficult decisions to make with no good answers.

That’s because Qatar has hosted the political offices and leaders of Hamas since 2012.

Qatar Airways is fully owned by the country of Qatar.

Qatar was able to negotiate the release of 4 hostages who were brutally kidnapped a month ago from Israel into Gaza, but has thus far been unsuccessful in securing the release of more hostages.

Qatar says there is no reason to force the office of Hamas to close, for as long as it can be used towards peace. I assume from that statement that the offices will be forced to close when the war is over, but that remains to be seen. For now, the US hasn’t pressured Qatar to close the Hamas offices, presumably with the same calculation, though that position seems untenable for much longer.

Is using Qatar’s mileage program to save a bundle on JetBlue or AA flights the right thing to do at this point in time? It doesn’t seem the same as flying on Qatar now, but it’s certainly a tough ethical dilemma.

However, it’s a question that’s above my pay grade and the developments below are too big to ignore. Therefore, I’m reporting the news of what can now be done with Qatar Avios, and I’d suggest asking your Rabbi or other trusted source of guidance on what you should do in this situation.

JetBlue points:

JetBlue’s revenue-based TrueBlue loyalty program means there are never outsized values to be had for their flights.

The program has been improving its elite status side of the program, but there’s not much to get excited about on the redemption side:

 

Avios Rates for JetBlue flights:

There used to be good values when redeeming AA and Emirates miles for JetBlue flights, but those are now long gone.

Luckily, you can now redeem Qatar Avios for JetBlue flights! Award availability is also excellent!

Even more incredibly, while Qatar charges fuel surcharges for all other transatlantic flights, they don’t charge any fuel surcharges on JetBlue flights! Hopefully it stays that way, though that is always subject to change.

Qatar has a very good partner award chart:

 

 

You can use GCMap to calculate the distance on any route. Here are some sample redemption prices:

Just login to Qatar Avios here and click award flights to search for JetBlue award flights. If your city won’t populate in the award flights tab, see here for what to do.

Transcontinental flights, such as NYC-LA, will also cost 13K Avios in coach or 38,750 Avios in MINT business class:

 

JFK to Paris or London will be 20,750 Avios in coach or 62K Avios in MINT business class:

 

 

 

Booking AA flights with Avios:

It’s also noteworthy that with AA raising mileage rates for their own flights, it’s worth checking Qatar Avios for AA flights.

AA charges 93.5K miles+$5.60 to fly from JFK to Paris in business class:

 

BA charges 62K miles+$981.20 to fly AA from JFK to Paris in business class:

Wouldn’t give them any business at this time.

What’s the ability like Qatar points flying on jetblue? How do you know if it’s available?

Avi

From Wikipedia:
“Qatar is a key financial backer and ally of the Palestinian militant organization Hamas. Qatar has transferred more than $1.8 billion to Hamas.”

Aron

Shameful for you to even post this. Are we a nation of suck suckeres to even consider continuing to do unnecessary business with these terror sponsors? I’m embarrassed for you for even posting this.

cb

see comment above its Qatar is not necessarily benefiting.
Airline loyalty programs are made to encourage flying that airline so short of doing so using them to bank points for partner redemption is not ‘giving the business’ much.

cb

If this Jet Blue charges Qatar for the redemption is this really rewarding Qatar?

ABC

YES! Keep your life simple and use your brain. Qatar sells points. Makes money. Supports terrorist organization.

Sam

Isreal just accused Qatar of sponsoring a terrorist tunnel under their hospital. Mabye I’m wrong but I assume Qatar was fully aware of this as well.

Does Qatar make money when redeeming with partner airlines. Sounds stupid just have no idea how airlines make money with partners on points.

David

Along the same lines. The St Regis Bal Harbour is owned by a Qatari company. While it may not be government owned, …..
Would love Dan’s opinion of staying there?

Danfan

Thanks Dan for this post.

How exactly is Qatar benefiting from us abusing their mileage program?

cb

not abusing but agree not clear its a net gain for them, do we know what they pay JB?

Common Sense

Abusing?

Kenny

What if they jihad our miles?

esaphire3

@dan The way you do things you are probably making them lose money so what’s the question?
Of course we should use Qatar miles!

Sam

If I book mint using Qatar Avios do I still get free same day change as a Mosaic member?

1099

Can you book JetBlue and BA on one ticket?

Abe

Does using Qatar Avios end up being cheaper than using straight Jetblue points? I know Jetblue prices their award flights based on the monetary price of the flights. My question is, does Qatar avios price stay the same even when the tickets are very expensive and Jetblue will charge a fortune in miles?

Israeli

And I been ranting about this for 3 years and you continued to belittle me. I think Klal Yisrael is owes an apology for the nonsensical posts promoting the terror airlines just because you can get some super machmir schechita food or non gebrokts in shower cabin. Ridiculous

Chaim

Its not letting me seatch jetblue, as i have 0 points, is there a workaround

ash

Besides Qatar, I would avoid Dublin too

Zack

Do you mean Dubai?

YoniPDX

In that same vein Qatar is a 25% stake holder in IAG (BA, Iberia, Air Lingus, Vueling, Level).

joel

to transfer between qatar and ba avios is there a waiting period after opening accounts ?

Eli

Is there a way to use my mint upgrade by booking economy through Qatar?

trent

I wonder too

joel

when booking by phone you can avoid the 2 day waiting period which can ensue when done online ?

Zack

Im not going to try and answer but I’d like to clarify the questions.

1) Is Qatar benefiting in this scenario?
It seems from the comments that we don’t have answer to this, but if the answer were to be yes, that would raise other questions such as using BA or Iberia Avios, as their parent company, IAG, is 20.1% owned by Qatar airways, or using Asia miles as Cathay Pacific is 9% owned by Qatar. Flying any of those airlines on a paid ticket could certainly be even more problematic.

2) Even if they are benefiting, from what Dan wrote at the beginning of the post, it seems unclear if they will continue to host or support Hamas so how do we weigh that?
Even if the answer to the first question is no, and they aren’t profiting, or they are no longer going to support Hamas there’s still another question,

3) Should we be in any way associated, even if we are benefiting and they are losing, with the national airline of a country which currently hosts and has so far given $1.8 billion to Hamas?
That would also bring up questions about Turkish Airlines, who’s government has also been a bit too cozy with Hamas, or Lufthansa, depending on how long it takes for the memory of 6 million neshamos to fade.

BrooklynDan

For ethical clarity the following two questions:
1. Does Qatar gain if I transfer BA Avios to Qatar Avios?
2. Does Qatar gain if I use these newly transfered BA points to purchase a JetBlue ticket?

AE

To everyone bashing him – leave Dan alone. He is doing his job, which is providing the best possible info he can for people to try and save money. This is major travel news. Every other travel/points/lifestyle site is posting about this. Do you expect Dan to ignore this because Qatar Airlines may or may not be (somewhat) complicit with Hamas? Before you complain, did you do your research to make sure that whatever company you are buying from/dealing with is also not complicit?

At the end of the day, Dan is doing his job of providing info. What you do with it is your choice. If you feel that they are too helpful to Hamas – skip it. If you think that they are losing money on these tickets and taking advantage will cost them money/hurt their ability to help Hamas, go for it. But stop trying to shoot the messenger!

On a related note, what happened to the Tefillin campaign? It’s one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. It used to be the top pinned post.

EBG

idea

by using such few quatar avios points for such generous mileage redemptions, seems likes its costing Quatar money? so why not use as many as possible?

Dav

I have tried forever combining my BA account with Qatar account. And it gives me an error saying that my DOB doesn’t match. When I’m fact it does match. Any advice?

Joe

Why does it say on the screenshot, from 90k points, when there is availability for 62k ? Btw I searched Dec 11 as shown on the screenshot nothing comes up for jetblue

Joe S

Was Jetblue removed? Only seeing AA, BA, no Jetblue. Tried many different days, in coach or business/first.

Ely

I haven’t seen JB either now.

Steve

Once on this topic, would you fly Emirates or Etihad through the UAE at this time?

Joey89

Is there a similar option with Delta where another SkyTeam airline has fixed redemption rates to help overcome their dynamic domestic pricing?

Danfan

Virgin atlantic and Air france are the 2 obvious choices.
But Delta releases very limited availability on international routes

Voice of Reason

JetBlue has eliminated most of its flights between NYC and Florida beginning January.

aaron

i was debating how i felt about doing this and then I asked myself, what if it was called Hamas air……no chance

EBG

Thank you for starting the article with The Elephant. But you don’t even need to check with your LOR on whether or not it’s advisable to fly with Qatar. The Israeli MFA just came out with a worldwide warning cautioning all Jews to hide outward signs of being Jewish.

Zack

That wasn’t what he suggested checking with your LOR. Read it again

EBG

You’re right; my bad: “Is using Qatar’s mileage program to save a bundle on JetBlue or AA flights the right thing to do at this point in time? It doesn’t seem the same as flying on Qatar now, but it’s certainly a tough ethical dilemma.”

I think Dan should weigh in on this question here. If someone uses Qatar’s mileage program but doesn’t fly Qatar, will Qatar earn any money from that transaction?

Solly

I discovered upon trying to link Qatar to my BA Executive Club that it will only link if the first/last names and DOB match on both profiles. Qatar had the wrong birthdate for me (it had transposed date/month to month/date). The only way to correct this requires uploading two documents (e.g., driver’s license, passport). Should I have any concerns about sending these sensitive identity documents to Qatar Airways?

Abe

You think Qatar will pass on your info to Hamas?

Tom

Looks like qatar pulled all jetblue flights !!!

pyg

Goes both ways flying El Al after Israel is killing many innocent civilians. This whole thing on both sides is bad and both sides have their issues.

Zack

You don’t see any difference between Israel trying to destroy a terrorist group hiding behind human shields and there being unintentional civilian casualties, and Hamas intentionally butchering civilians with the goal of “wiping Israel off the map?” Your moral equivalence is what leads to tragedies like this you pathetic fool

pyg

I have no issues with people saying don’t fly Qatar. What Hamas did was deplorable. What I do not like is what Israel has done (albeit not purposely) with the death of so many innocent civilians in Gaza. Never said it was a moral equivalence. Both sides are doing bad things.

pyg

if you think (I hope not) that these people dying innocently is collateral damage then you sir are the fool.

Zack

You contradict yourself. First you say “What I do not like is what Israel has done (albeit not purposely) with the death of so many innocent civilians in Gaza”, then you say “if you think (I hope not) that these people dying innocently is collateral damage then you sir are the fool,” insinuating that Israel is purposely killing innocent civilians. So explain yourself, do you think is Israel intentionally targeting civilians or not?

Zack

Oh, and the statement “both sides are doing bad things” is called moral equivalency. It seems like you didn’t understand that

Pyg

Both sides are doing bad things. I personally do not think they want to kill Palestinians but I do believe they see it as their only option which I would disagree with. While it’s a challenge no doubt I do not think these deaths are justified in Israel’s attempt to end Hamas. So back to my original statement. Qatar fine don’t fly it. Certainly if Hamas had an airline I’d never but to say Israel’s actions here don’t warrant not flying them to me makes no sense .

Pyg

Do you think so far Israel has done it right? Do you think innocent people should continue to die until all of Hamas is gone? I’m curious on your take.

Pyg

Oh and me saying I hope not was you thinking if that was collateral damage…not me hoping that it isn’t in purpose

Zack

You still didn’t explain why that’s not a contradiction. Here’s the definition of collateral damage according to Merriam-Webster: “injury inflicted on something other than an intended target
specifically: civilian casualties of a military operation.”
For example, Israel bombs a Mosque that’s stroring weapons, or a residential building housing Hamas militants, and civilians are also killed in the strike, that’s collateral damage.
So I’ll ask you again, how can you say that the civilians killed by Israel’s actions are “not purposely” but also say that I’m a fool if
I believe they’re collateral damage?
And yes, I believe Israel has the right to defend itself, meaning they have the right to destroy a terrorist group that wants to kill all of their civilians, and to bomb every weapons depot, command center, and tunnel necessry to do that. That doesn’t mean civilian casualties in Gaza aren’t tragic, they are, just like the 2 million German civilians that died during WW2, but I still think the Allies did the right thing in destroying the Nazi regime. Do you disagree? Do you think if a terrorist group hides behind civilians they’re immune and get to act with impunity? If not why are you suggesting a boycott of El Al?

Pyg

Well I’m glad you at least recognize it is tragic however I believe they should have sent special forces in earlier. 2.2 million people can’t just all get up and leave. There are elderly, sick, injured and more that can’t just go. So what for them? I was not alive nor well versed on the specifics of the innocent civilians that died during WW2 so for me to comment much there wouldn’t be fair. I will say technology now to then is eons different so the capabilities of the IDF dwarf what we had 80 years ago. Of course they have a right to defend themselves I never said they don’t, I just think they should have approached this a bit different. I also NEVER said don’t target them you certainly can, just a bit different. So because of that, and my full disagreement with their efforts, I believe if you want to boycott Qatar, boycott el al.

Zack

You sound so confident that a special forces raid could resolve the situation, but guess what? They did send special forces in earlier, on October 13 to be exact, 6 days after the initial Hamas attack and they didn’t have much luck. You are clearly just as not well versed on this as you are on WW2. Also, while the capabilites of the IDF are far more advanced than they were 80 years ago, they are also facing a completely different challenge, a genocidal terrorist group embedded in the civilian infrastructure with total disregard for the lives of even their own civilians (car bombings on evacuation routes, misfired rockets landing on hospitals etc.) You say target them differently, how exactly? Do you think if the IDF could accomplish their objectives with less civilian casualties without losing their own soldiers they wouldn’t? What in the world do they gain with Palestinian civilians dying besides international condemnation? Civilian casualties are the unfortunate cost of war, not its objective.

Pyg

I am well versed. IDF has some of the best special forces in the world. Regardless of that they’ve destroyed Gaza city and you can’t tell me that had to be done. You say this is just a casualty of war and say it so callously. Well agree to disagree but unlike you much of the world thinks what Israel has done has not been good. And what Israel is not thinking is how is this post Hamas? Much of the world is starting to dislike what Israel is doing. Things can only get worse elsewhere. It’s not just winning this war the way you want it is what is next. They are gaining more enemies. Just look at the UN votes on a ceasefire for humanitarian needs. Bigger picture here for the years to come. That’s what you do not seem to see.

Zack

You still haven’t answered my question, do you honestly believe that if Israel could’ve pulled off another Entebbe they wouldn’t have? Also, how in the world do you know what Israel is or isn’t thinking post Hamas? I do agree with what you pointed out that a lot of people are starting to fall for Hamas’ tactics of having as many civilian casualties as possible to garner the world’s sympathy, but I hope level headed leaders (or as you would call them, callous) continue to support Israel’s right to self defense. I looked at the UN vote and you know what I noticed (besides for the fact that Hamas was very in favor of the resolution)? The US, Canada, Australia, India, S. Korea, Japan and more than half of Europe either voted against it or abstained. I wonder if they know something about dealing with radical Islamist militants that you don’t seem to understand.

pyg

We are straying away here. Bottom line is you find it okay that all these civilians are dying (not that you want them to but you feel it is just based on the situation) and I do not. That is the disagreement. Because of said disagreement I feel that what they are doing is wrong and unjust. I feel like they should take matters differently whatever it is that may be. I am not a military general but too many people are dying. Too many hospitals are falling and people cannot get help. You are essentially okay with that by thinking what is going on is the only way. That to me is wrong.

Zack

That is not a logical argument, it’s an emotional one. Come back when you have something logical to say. Until then, please let my brave brothers and sisters in the IDF do what they need to do to eradicate Hamas and rescue the hostages.

Pyg

Sure, let them kill anyone in their path. Great theory. When andhopefully hamas is gone, let’s see the antisemitism then. Which is a shame. Go ahead and support these killings. Good for you. I hope you sheep at night. I support these peoples lives anyone that is innocent. Do better Israel. Kill Hamas, not 10k and counting innocent people. I’m done here. You are not able to see both sides

Zack

Do you realize that by continuing to criticize Israel for the deaths of Gazan civilians, you encourage Hamas to continue placing their rocket launchers, weapons caches, command centers, and tunnels, under schools, mosques, hospitals, residential buildings, and market places? I hope YOU can sleep at night

pyg

yup, so just kill them all. DO BETTER ISRAEL. They can go about different tactics. Yes I can. I am Jewish and I support their war efforts MINUS this incessant amt of casualties. I get some innocent will die but this is outrageous. Lets just agree to disagree. Arguing over online forums really is a waste of time. Hopefully Hamas is rid of and things will be better. I am sure we can agree on that and leave it there.

How do I know if there is availably if the city does not come up and I need to use the other search method? I do not want to transfer before knowing id there is availability.

Sounds like Qatar wasn’t happy with Dan’s opening statement…

dave

if you were going for status and all is the same, would you go for Jet Blue or delta?

Ely

Real antisemites. Couldn’t even give us a good deal for a day

Mordy

Anyone tried booking online vs calling them up? Online booking is not a confirmed booking?

Mordy

On the phone is Instant but can take a while, online is just requesting it and they get back to you by email if the tickets was confirmed

If I would like to book a route not showing in their award search, can I transfer enough miles for one ticket and then transfer more if it if they say it’s available?
