• As the article states you HAVE to do four QR sectors, so in terms of 'how to plan your travel' that's got to be Step 1 if you want to keep your QR Platinum OW Emerald status for another year. And also as the article shows even one of those flights will get you 150 Qpoints on the cheapest fare whi...

  • I got mine, Velocity Platinum matched to QR Platinum and Oneworld Emerald.

  • Got my email overnight, now have Platinum status with Qatar which means Oneworld Emerald too, thanks ET for letting us know about this great offer!
