As I wrote about last month, Qatar QMiles have been converted to Avios, joining IAG Group’s British Airways, Iberia, Aer Lingus, and Vueling. Qatar is the largest shareholder in IAG, so moving to Avios is a natural move.

Miles have been converted at a 1:1 ratio and Qatar mileage requirements remain the same.

You can enroll here in Qatar Avios by 3/31/22 and get 2,500 miles instantly, or another 5,000 miles for flying on a paid Qatar flight by 9/30/22.

Note that you must be at least 18 to have a QMiles account.

Qatar has some decent reward options, like Qatar Qsuites business class awards from JFK to Doha for 70K miles, JFK to the Maldives for 85K and JFK to Cape Town for 95K miles.

You can redeem AA miles for Qatar Qsuites business class from JFK to Doha or the Maldives for the same 70K miles and JFK to South Africa is just 75K AA miles with no fuel surcharges, though only Marriott points transfer into AA miles, making them harder to get other than from their own credit cards.

You can link and transfer Qatar Avios and British Airways Avios here.

Currently Citi points transfer to Qatar, but not British Airways. However you can now transfer Citi points to British Airways via Qatar!

Currently AMEX, Capital One, and Chase points points transfer to British Airways but not Qatar. However you can now transfer AMEX, Capital One, and Chase points to Qatar via British Airways!

I have updated the master transfer and points expiration post with this information.

Qatar QSuites is one of the highest rated business class products around. They can be configured into a closed suite for 1, 2, or even 4 passengers! They even provide delicious Hermolis kosher meals onboard!



I had no problem transferring my 2,500 Qatar Avios into 2,500 BA Avios.


If you enroll 6 people with the 2,500 mile bonus and convert the Qatar Avios to British Airways Avios, you will then be able to create a BA household account and merge those miles together for 15K Avios in one account, enough for 2 free one-way domestic short haul award tickets!

Note that if you do enroll in a household account, you won’t be able to redeem Avios for anyone outside of your household.

It’s worth noting that BA has removed the hundreds of dollars in fuel surcharges that they used to levy on Qatar flights, though they still charge a few dollars more than Qatar.

Just landed in LAX from JNB-DOH-LAX, great value with AA miles!


Now where can you fly with Qatar miles?


Any reason not to add 100 years to my children’s age?


What are qr rates on aa to tlv

Miles Q

How many miles would it be for JFK-DOH-ATH? on Qsuites

Eran Vaknin

Dan, AA just released a good amount of QSuites Award availability for June/July JFK-MLE


dates? I cant see anything

Eran Vaknin

almost all of june, (one way) looking at award calendar right now. just booked 06/21 with confirmed QSuite seat selection


weird. Both mine and my wife’s birthday flipped to 12 November. The year remained correct, but the dates are off. Cant see how to change it on Qatar’s website.

Mr. CC

Is your birthday Dec 11?


I think bec the format requires day/month/year, not month/day/year


will this also extend my BA expiration date?


Anybody know?


I just signed up and it is not showing the bonus miles. Please advise.


Turns out I missed the promo code: FLYQR3


Seems a bit invasive with the need to upload birth/wedding certificates and passports for family members.


How on earth do I set up a household account?

Head scratcher

Any reason why this error message comes up?
”Promo code is incorrect/expired. You can proceed with enrolment, but no promotion will be applied.”




Use all capital letters?




“Note that if you do enroll in a household account, you won’t be able to redeem Avios for anyone outside of your household.”

An unnesesary risk I think nobody should take if then you can not book for a 3th party


How can you search award availability on QR site? It didn’t allow me to do so stating I don’t have enough miles.

Transfers between Qatar and British instant?


Not for me. Keeps telling me name or DOB do not match, although they absolutely do. Very frustrating.


not working any more. i put in the code fast and submitted and says on verifcetion email that verifeciton pending what dose that mean?


I keep getting this error “Your profiles don’t match. Please make sure your First Name, Last Name, and Date of Birth match in both profiles.


I see British Air has “‘Book with Confidence’ promise on new reservations made after 30 March 2020” if I book with Avios today can I cancel the reservation and get my points back? if I have two people on a reservation, is it possible to cancel one of the two or the entire reservation has to be cancelled?
