Hannah, my travel agent, is looking at different flights for me. Qatar will give me a full refund rather than solve my problem. If I can get 30 kg (without crazy layovers) to anywhere in Europe for the original price – I’ll do that. Otherwise I might have to wear the nine hour layover in
Qatar Airways has changed my flights leaving me with the option of either taking a later flight from Sydney to Hong Kong on Cathay keeping short layovers there and in Doha but losing 10 kg from my baggage allowance (as Cathay offers 20 kg to economy passengers on that route compared to Qantas’ 30 kg).
