Award Redemption One World London to Doha/Dubai

    Hello All,

    I want to book a business class or first class award ticket for (22 - 22 August) for two people from London to either Doha or Dubai flying a one world carrier. I will be using AA miles to book and my preference is Qatar Airways out of London to Doha, but I can't find a single seat available flying Qatar?? If I'm not mistaken, don't Qatar have 4 or 5 flights out of London? How can I not find anything out of London to Doha? Will availability possibly change?

    While BA is an option, the taxes and fuel surcharges are ridiculous and I'm hoping to avoid this. Anyone has any ideas on what I can do?

    Thanks for your help.

    @ Benjamin2744 -- Sometimes airlines just don't release award space, unfortunately, but definitely check back as it gets closer to departure.

    As an alternative, AAdvantage partners with Gulf Air, which would be a great backup option, as they pretty much always have oodles of award space between London and Bahrain.
