Qatar Airways will extend its frequent flyer program to BA flights next month, ahead of the Gulf carrier's entry into the oneworld alliance later this year.
From 2 September 2013, members of Qatar's Privilege Club will be able to earn and burn their Qmiles when travelling on eligible BA flights (operated by BA and carrying a BA flight number).
The earning rates span from a lowly 25% in the cheapest discount economy seats through to 150% if you're luxing it up in BA First Class.
QMiles already stashed in your account can be redeemed for BA flights from 1 October 2013.
Although at the time of writing British Airways has yet to make any reciprocal announcement, we'd expect the same deal will apply for earning and burning BA Avios on Qatar flights.
