    Hey Lucky. About six weeks ago you wrote about the latest +Qatar promotion extension. Well, it looks like Qatar may have finally ended the +Qatar promotion and replaced it with a deeply discounted hotel booking option instead. Do you have any info on this? I'm super bummed because I'm finally flying Q-suites in May with an overnight layover, but it was just beyond the deadline of the last +Qatar promotion. I had set a reminder to check the website for another extension today, since the last promotion ended 1/31. I know you were expecting it would be extended indefinitely. I was hoping they'd extend it at least once more.

    If you go to the former +Qatar page you now end up here: https://www.discoverqatar.qa/stopover/

    Maybe they spent too much on their lame commercial and had to start pulling in some revenue on stopover hotels? ; )

    Update - I just called them because I was trying to book the stopover hotel under the new program and the application required a Qatar ticket number. They confirmed over the phone that the new program is only applicable for tickets booked through Qatar. So my AA award ticket doesn't qualify : (
