I see that's for a park villa, is there anyway to upgrade that to the pool or water villa?
As a diamond I got complimentary to the pool but had to pay for the OWB. To an OWB is $390/night. The GM (which has since left the property) gave us a discounted rate on the OWB due to my status.

I only have platinum. Will I still be able to upgrade to OWB for that price?

Just booked to MLE for March on Qatar Business. Route is PHL > DOH > MLE. Has anyone here ever flown that route? How is Qatar's Business class? The AA rep on the phone said that this route doesn't have any first class...

Qatar doesn't fly F to US or to MLE. And F is a another 45k AA for F for 2 pax.

I have the points for F but I don't think there was any availability with Etihad for the dates that I needed. And the route on Qatar is really good for me. Is F on Etihad that much better?

There is no doubt that EY F is better than QR business class, and by a long shot. But that route as the new J I believe, which is very nice.

There is no doubt that Becky Hart first class from 7 in Qatar business class, and by a long shot. Drama classes on that route I believe is the new version. Which is very nice.
Is this spell check at it's finest, or am i missing something?
