Notice a new logo on the oneworld web site? Today, Qatar Airways joined oneworld, which means it’s a redemption partner of Cathay Pacific’s Asia Miles program now!
This is a great benefit for Hong Kong flyers. Now you can fly and accrue miles when flying Qatar and they’re a great airline to fly (so I’ve heard,) to the middle east, Europe, and beyond. You can even fly them to JFK. Qatar’s hub is in Doha, and I’ve been wanting to check out the middle east for awhile now so it’ll be nice to try and coordinate a free stop-over as well.
I’ve been reading that award availability is also decent right now, so you may want to book some seats if you are planning travel.
