    You can also add SGN-DOH-PNH return onto the ticket

    Just airport taxes to add a DOH stopover on the outbound

    $170 add-on for stopover on a return.

    7300 flown miles and ~ $250 each way, in paid business class

    And of course QR is expected to join oneworld shortly (and already partners with BA for mileage earning and redemption but not for tier status).

    Considering I live in PNH this might be a fun few days (if Mrs kwai allows).

    Booked for Easter (if it stays). Adding a night in DOH doubled the price, but we will get around 12 hours. Hopefully new airport will be open (don't think it is yet).

    Booked for October...positioning with US miles will be a great way to spend 4 days flying around Asia and Middle East

    Gary, Thank you for finding and posting I was able to book 2 tickets.
    Since I am going to fly to Far East I thought to make it worth while I booked two PHN DOH SGN.
    It will be interesting to find way back to PHN from SGN after the first ticket.

    @karung99 from SGN, either take ferry upstream to PNH or redeem DL miles on VN.

    Actually redeeming DL miles is a horrible horrible value there. That one flight would cost you 45k SkyMiles in coach since DL doesn't do one-ways and outside of Vietnam domestic flights their chart in SE Asia is not a very good value.

    I forgot that DL doesn't allow one-ways. I did ICN-KIX for 15K miles roundtrip on KE, which was a great use of DL. I thought VN may have similar deals. One-ways on VN is $160 currently. I'm not sure who else is flying this route.
