If I am travelling to Europe I like to book the flights as a multistop itinerary so that I can have long breaks to have a sleep in-between flights but now I notice it brings up an error (4002) - a bit of googling shows that error comes up if you try and do that with a stopover of less than 24 hours. Has anyone else noticed this is happening? And is there a way around it? I don’t want Qantas to book it because then you can’t change online yourself without paying those ridiculous so called ‘service fees’. Any advice?
Why is there a Qantas error with multi city reward flights bookings including stopovers less than 24 hours?
Is this the article you found from Google? https://www.creditcardcompare.com.au/blog/how-get-around-qantascom-booking-errors/
What is the route you are trying too redeem?
Yes that is the source - interesting isn’t it. I am trying to fly Barcelona to Doha and then Doha to Hong Kong with a 16 layover using points. I am trying to book for 2021 and keep getting the error. Unfortunately when I call qantas they say they can’t see flights that far ahead - I don’t get the error if I leave more than 24 hours between the flights but then the points are higher as its costed as 2 trips.
I had a quick play on the Qantas website. No issues for me finding flights BCN-DOH-HKG in Feb 2020. 3 hr transit.
Judging from the Qantas calendar, there are only 2 days open for booking in 2021. 1st and 2nd Jan. What dates are you looking for? On Qatar Airways website, they are open till 10 Jan 2021.
