Airlines that have spent the past decade devaluing their loyalty programs suddenly find themselves in a conundrum. After years of plenty, how do you get passengers to fill empty seats on planes and how do you get them to spend money on your credit cards in a time when cash is king?

Qatar devalued their points into oblivion in 2018 with one-way Qatar Qsuites business class awards costing 6 figures, but they have now reversed that devaluation.

The cost of a one-way Qatar Qsuites business class award from JFK to Doha has been reduced to 70K miles. JFK to the Maldives is 85K and JFK to Cape Town is 95K miles. There are no fuel surcharges.

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, though only Marriott points transfer into AA miles, making them harder to get other than from their own credit cards.

You can transfer Citibank, Capital One, or Marriott points into Qatar points. You can transfer those points with cards like Citi Premier or Capital One Venture.

Alas, Qatar still has no published award chart, so they can always devalue again without notice. That means you won’t want to transfer points until you’re ready to book. You can check rates with the calculator here.

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!


You can enroll in Qatar’s Privilege Club and get 2,500 miles instantly here! You’ll also get 5,000 miles if you fly on a paid Qatar flight by 9/30/22. Registration for this offer ends 3/31/22. The 5,000 mile bonus will post within 30 days of your paid flight.

Now, how do we get US airlines to reverse their devaluations?
