Fly business class from Asia to LA for $2000 and earn lots of Qantas status credits

Qantas partner Qatar Airways has a fantastic business class fare from Bangkok to Los Angeles for around $2000 return. This is an incredible price and a great opportunity for travellers who can position themselves in Bangkok and don’t mind flying the “long way round” to LA.

One of the most attractive parts of this deal is that Qantas Frequent Flyers will earn 520 status credits for these flights – which could qualify them for gold or higher status. Passengers will also earn 27,000 Qantas Points.

Seats are available throughout 2017 but are filling up fast – so you need to be quick to book. I doubt this fare will be available for longer than a day or two.

To book, use Google Flights to search for availability and then click through to the Qatar Airways website to complete the booking.

You can stay in LA for up to 30 days, and not less than 7 days to get the cheapest fare (if you stay less than 7 days the fare is just over $3000).

To position yourself in Bangkok, you’ll require a separate booking from Australia – use points or pay for a ticket (even if it’s in economy!). Bangkok is a great city to stop over if you have time.

Qatar Airways’ business class products are among the best in the world. On the Bangkok-Doha route, you can fly in its flagship A380s – so try to snag one of these flights if you can.

The Boeing 777s that also fly between Bangkok and Doha and Doha and LA are also very good. While the layout is 2-2-2 (unlike the 1-2-1 on the A380s) the seats are very comfortable and the dining is superb.

This is yet another illustration of the hack I’ve previously posted regarding using Asia as a stopover to enjoy cheap premium fares to North America and Europe.
