    Hi all,

    Yesterday I was searching flights from Cairo to Boston on QR. The fare came out to only $1769 in J. Sadly, when I went to book it today Qatar airways's website, Orbitz, and google flights will not show J availability for sale, only Y. I checked and Cai - Jfk is also not for sale. Is anyone else having these issues or is it just me?

    As Lucky has posted, QR posts some great fares from ex Cairo. The other say I searched for J fares from Cai - Bos in J and I wanted to go and purchase it today. Sadly, Qatarairways.com, Orbitz, and Google Flights are no longer showing J fares. I also tried just one way Cai-Bos and nothing is for sale, only in Y!! Is anyone else experiencing these issues?

    I was looking from July 21st to December 17th and yesterday QR quoted me $1769. I also just checked one way for all of the months from July through December. QR is only selling economy.

    This sounds more like some kind of technical issue to me. I did use ITA Matrix with the calendar option and July 21 as a start date and it showed no fares. @Tiffany have you heard anything about this?

    Probably a tech glitch. Fares wouldnt show on qatarairways.com last night or this morning when i looked.

    if you really need the ticket, maybe call Qatar's phone reservations and request any phone fees, if any, to be waived?

    @Tiffany @Lucky Do any of you know what is going on. Cai - Nyc was one of the really good deals with QR to the US, and it included Al Safwa access.
