The new Malaysia Airlines and Qatar Airways Codeshare Agreement is going to be expanded offering extra options for Malaysia Airlines enrich members to earn higher rates of mileage on Qatar Airways flights.
Malaysia Airlines and Qatar Airways Codeshare – What does this mean for Enrich members?
This new partnership opens up new destinations to fly through on one ticket from Malaysia to a range of North American cities – including Boston, New York and Miami. Quite simply this means that flights to those new destinations you’ll connect via Doha – Qatar Airways home base.
As with all codeshares you’ll be able to check your bags through and you’ll be able to book under one ticket through the Malaysia Airlines website – meaning you’ll have some protection if connections are missed. More details on the new partnership can be found here:
Having flown with Qatar Airways relatively frequently over the last couple years you’ll generally find a better product on Qatar flights, with a better seat and entertainment system on the majority of their aircraft including their new Q-Suite – my one piece of criticism though would be that the service tends to vary from crew to crew more so than on Malaysia Airlines.
