Unfortunately, the spa in Sydney closes at 4pm but the Melbourne one is open 8pm to 11:30pm, giving you time for a complimentary treatment (make sure you book in as soon as you enter the lounge.)

During your transit in Doha, you can relax in the spacious Al-Safwa First Class Lounge.

Travel from Australia to Europe via Doha has not been affected by recent political tensions in the Middle East, however, recent public relations challenges for Qatar Airways and reduced demand may be a factor in the lowering of these fares.

Basically, right now, travellers can secure amazing prices on a great product.

This deal may suit some readers looking at paid Business fares who deem the slight extra cost for travelling in First Class worth it.

You’ll also earn 360 Status Credits if you choose to credit your flights to Qantas Frequent Flyer.

In this one trip, you’ll easily reach Silver status and be more than halfway to Gold status with Qantas Frequent Flyer
