With Qatar Airways being the principal victim of the diplomatic crisis between Qatar and its neighbouring countries, the question about the future of the airline – and its Frequent Flyer Program Privilege Club – needs to be raised. True information from Privilege Club is not available since the internal advice seems to be to pretend that it’s business as usual. It is true that the airline is pushing ahead with its development as planned, just having launched flights to Dublin, with Nice and Skopje coming up next. But as a matter of fact, the neighbouring countries have not only cut air links between Qatar and their countries – affecting more than 20% of Qatar’s total capacity -, but are also revoking the licences of Qatar Airways – which will take a long time to re-establish, even if the crisis is nevertheless resolved quickly. Should the crisis last, however, the international community will need to position itself as well – what could definitely put new challenges upon the carrier and question its membership in oneworld. As always in such times of uncertainty, FFP members should make sure to keep their mileage balances at reasonable levels by redeeming miles regularly as things might turn worse quickly. The likelihood for such worst case scenario might be difficult to assume for outsiders, but gambling in such situations has never been a good advice.
