Seems to be a promotional fare.

I booked one as well at 331€ for September. I'm going to give QR a try despite the dreaded 9-abreast B788.
The lowest fare I could find is 319€ but the schedule is not convenient for me.

Search on skyscanner.it or skyscanner.be or momondo.be/momondo.ie then choose budgetair as OTA. Direct on Budgetair doesn't give you the steepest discount, you need to be forwarded for additional discount to be applied.
Check the payment method on which the discount is offered and make sure they don't apply a service fee.
Be aware also of Budgetair's restrictive change and cancellation policies.

These fares are lower than the operating cost to the airline, so enjoy while the promotion lasts (tomorrow is the last day).

Also many other destinations worldwide available, including Africa, Asia.
The blackout period seems to be July/Mid-August for most destinations.

You can book all the way to the end of 2016.

Little mileage earning though.
Be aware that there is also a 22:45 HND arrival offered. Public transportation stops after midnight, and a taxi to downtown will cost you a lot of money. With a foreign passport, you can get on the Narita Express at a discount.

I flew them on 4 longhaul trips in 2015, to Tokyo.

In general, I have found a dubious safety environment, including incidents and state of the cabin (in a way that iso only noticeable to someone who works in aviation), and unnecessarily unstable landings.

On BRU-IST connecting sectors, IFE is only on widebodies and A321. If you have the bad luck of being on a B737, you are going to get bored. In addition, even on the A321 it's a reduced program and it got stuck quite often on my seat (others seemed fine). On the longhaul sectors the program is quite good.

Cabin crew generally uninterested and invisible. They don't come around looking if everything is fine or with trays of drinks. If you missed your meal because you were asleep, they probably will offer you a snack instead of warming your meal. On JL, cabin crew would put a visible sticker on your seat offering to call them when you wake up. This all is in economy cabin of course.

Meals are ok, the quantity and quality is not spectacular. The orange juice looks fresh pressed but it's dilluted.

Cabin hygiene is not so good.

IST is as said by others a very sterile airport. No free wifi connection.
The only good way to spend time is in the TK lounge.
Also, Istanbul is also a ISIS target area.

If it's dirt cheap ok, otherwise I avoid.
But I'm booked on them for 3 longhaul returns this year because they are dirt cheap.

I'm going to give QR a try despite the dreaded 9-abreast B788.
Well I found it much better than the 10-abreast B777 of EK for example. It's 17.2 vs 17" but the feeling is different.
the 787 feel so much more modern, quiet and stable. I had a very good impression.
DOH is also a great airport, brand new and looks completely empty all the time ;)
My messages reflect my personal opinion which may be different than yours. I beleive a forum is made to create a debate so I encourage people to express themselves, the way they want, with the ideas they want. I expect the same understanding in return.

And if you want to be downtown, the Eurostar is much better: the Heathrow Express train costs gold!

I've got my oyster card, so I usually take the tube into town. However, last time I was there, the normal train service to LHR wasn't operating anymore and the Heathrow express could be taken at a reduced rate. Win!
