While now is not the ideal time to book travel, I cannot help but to mention an incredible Qatar Airways fare sale going on now.
Fly Qatar Airways Qsuites For Under $1700 R/T From New York Or Philadelphia To Ukraine
Qatar Airways Qsuites is one of best (if not the best) overall business class products in the world. The enclosed Qsuites available on select aircraft, including the A350-1000 that operate between Philadelphia (PHL)/New York (JFK) and Doha (DOH), offer great privacy and comfort. You can read my full review here.
While it is usually easy to find great deals on Qatar Airways, we have not seen many good deals from the USA lately. But Qatar currently has discounted business class between PHL/JFK and Kiev (KBP) via DOH to as little as $1637 r/t.
That’s a great value preposition when you consider the comfort, the miles you’ll earn (26,270 elite qualifying miles and 17,513 redeemable miles for the New York itinerary), and also what a great destination Kiev is.
I’m not booking because of the uncertainty over the virus as it relates to my businesses, but I’d certainly love to re-visit Kiev then explore other parts of the country.
Note that a minimum 7-day stay is required and you must depart on a Monday – Thursday and return on a Sunday – Wednesday. You can travel anytime from June through early 2021 (don’t expect flights to operate in June yet). I’d search for available dates on Matrix ITA then book directly with Qatar Airways or use BookWithMatrix to book.
If you have an American Express Platinum or Centurion card, you can take advantage of a further discount via the International Airline Program, dropping the round-trip cost under $1600.

This deal was first posted yesterday morning and I figured I did not need to join the chorus in pointing it out. But almost two days later it is still available. Consider this your final call. If you are someone who loves to fly, you’ll enjoy the backtracking involved. And if you are willing to accept a long layover on your return journey, you can have lie-flat seats for all four segments of the journey.
From a points-earning perspective and from a comfort perspective, this sure beats flying Ukraine International Airlines (yes, I know they have a newer business class now, but it’s still no Qsuites!).
