Qatar Airways Privilege Club offers the greatest number of award seats for Qatar Airways flights amongst all loyalty programs.
Since Qsuites business class is such a competitive product, finding an award seat at the lowest “Saver” rate can prove to be quite difficult.
However, Qatar Airways Privilege Club also features “Flexi” awards, which offer access to more seats in exchange for a greater amount of points.
What Are Qatar Airways Privilege Club Flexi Awards?
In the Qatar Airways Privilege Club loyalty program, one unique feature available to members is Flexi awards.
With Flexi pricing, you get access to a greater number of award seats, albeit at twice the cost of the “Saver” off-peak award price.
It’s worth noting that this is much different than dynamic pricing, since the cost is always fixed at twice the amount of a standard, off-peak award seat, and doesn’t otherwise fluctuate.
When you search for an award flight on the Qatar Airways website, you may notice the word Flexi in the search results. This denotes that the price you see is twice that of the standard, off-peak “Saver” rate.
If you don’t see Flexi above the search results, then you know that you’re paying the lower “Saver” rate, which is a great deal.
For example, a “Saver” award for a one-way flight from Montreal to Doha costs 70,000 Avios on off-peak dates in Qsuites business class.
However, the Flexi price for the same flight is 140,000 Avios.
You may also see Flexi pricing displayed on a green flag with “Q2” written on it. Flexi tends to appear more often on the Qatar Airways website, and the Q2 banner tends to appear on the app; however, it may also appear on the website.
In either event, they both refer to the same thing.
Flexi pricing is only available for flights with Qatar Airways in economy, business class, and First Class booked through Qatar Airways Privilege Club.
You won’t find Flexi pricing for Qatar Airways flights booked with other loyalty programs, nor will you find Flexi pricing for other airlines booked through Qatar Airways Privilege Club.
Qatar Airways recently introduced peak and off-peak pricing to its loyalty program, with flights priced higher during peak dates on “Saver” rates.
Flexi prices aren’t affected by this distinction, and you’ll pay the same Flexi price…
