Emirates considering purchasing narrow-bodied aircraft.

I just came across this post on CNN.com, where they are quoting Emirates CEO Tim Clark on Emirates considering buying a fleet of narrow-bodied aircraft within the next 18 months.

It is a radical change from what Emirates now is operating, as they have a 2-aircraft fleet only, solely operating the Boeing 777 and the Airbus A380. Of course, there is a big difference in the number of passengers in those planes too, the Boeing 777-200LR only takes about 260 passengers, whereas the one-class Airbus A380 takes 615 passenger, but still moving from this fleet and adding a narrow-bodied fleet will be interesting.

Qatar Airways Travel Festilval ending today!

As I wrote about a few days ago, Qatar Airways is offering several great deals during their travel festival, and the offers ends tonight midnight Qatar time (which would be 1 am UAE time.)

If you haven’t booked yet, I would go ahead and do so now. The offers are as follows:

15% additional discount with Visa on Qatar Airways during Travel Festival

This is the second most exciting part of the travel festival for me, VISA is offering 15% on all tickets booked with Qatar Airways during the travel festival, provided you pay for the ticket with a VISA credit card.

The amount of money you can save on this is alone enough to pay the annual fee on any VISA credit card, so if you don’t have one you are loosing out big time. To apply for a VISA credit card from CitiBank (my favorite way of earning miles with Qatar Airways), click here.

Kids fly for free with Qatar Airways Travel Festival Promotion

This promotion is to me the most exciting part of the travel promotion, and I have found some incredible deals to be had with this.

Basically, as long as there is one or two adults flying, you will get one or two tickets for children under the age of 12 for free on the same flight in economy.

Book more – Save more with Qatar Airways Travel Festival

This is the first time I have seen that Qatar Airways is offering this kind of promotion, a book more, save more. It is similar to their 2-for-1 companion offer, but this one is valid if you are 3 passengers traveling together.

Again, it offers some great discounts on certain destinations from certain cities, and you have to check fares from your country to see what is on offer, or even change countries if you do not mind doing a positioning flight to get the fares you are looking for.

Qatar Airways is again offering a 2-for-1 companion offer on selected routes and destination. Just like the discounted fares the promotion is different depending on the country and airport of origin, but again we see some good and a few really great fares.

Win one of 500+ prizes with Qatar Airways Travel Festival

I am not a big fan of random prizes made on bookings, as I don’t think I have ever won anything.

Also, I am confused about the text, as it seems like this is a promotion that should have been running in the beginning of September 2016, but I guess this is just a copy and paste from a previous promotion and they just forgot to change the dates (looking at the winners so far they seem to have drawn winners the last couple of days at least.)
