Qatar Airways is generally regarded as one of the best airlines around, especially in Business Class and First Class. The very frequent sales that they offer, mostly Eastbound from Europe, offer some of the best value luxury flight deals around.
While there is no global QR sale on at the moment, there is a very reasonable Business Promo fare available from Stockholm to Auckland in Business Class. It weighs in at around SEK20,281: that’s approximately £1826/€2076, which while not amazingly cheap is darn good price to get to Auckland in Business Class from Northern Europe.
There is good availability for the next few months. You can find sample routings and fares here.
Those sample flights are operated on the relatively new Boeing 787 aircraft from Stockholm to Doha. The cabin interior is wonderful on the 787, one of the best in the industry.
And on the Doha to Auckland sector it’ll be the Boeing 777. The interiors here are no so up-to-date, but they are more than satisfactory for this, the world’s current longest flight. It’s a huge 16 hours from Doha to Auckland (non-stop!) and a whopping 17 hours 40 mins on the way back thanks to those pesky jet-streams!
All-in-all, a reasonable value flight and plenty of time to enjoy the on-board service!
