Etihad Early Bird Economy & Business Class Sale 2015

by Continental Club on February 7, 2015  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

EtihadThis week sees Abu Dhabi-based Etihad entering the longhaul fare sale fray, arguably taking over from where its fellow Middle Eastern competitor Qatar Airways left off last week. The headline entry fare of £415 return to the UAE may not be as low as Qatar’s flash sale of £285 headliner to Abu Dhabi, but Etihad’s service to its desert home is, of course, non-stop – and for onward destinations fares are largely comparable to those seen in the Qatar sale.

Etihad Early Bird Sale

Added to which, Etihad has a larger overall route network and is making its fares available until 23rd February 2015, for travel through to 10th December 2015.

Etihad Business Studio

As a comparison, Qatar’s Business Class fare of £2775 to Perth from London was slightly lower than Etihad’s £2949 in this sale. Etihad also flies to Sydney one-stop from the UK, though, while Qatar does not currently serve Australia’s biggest city.

One thing to note, however, is a recent change in policy resulting in not all Etihad Business Class fares qualifying for chauffeur transfers. These are now limited to J/C/D/W booking classes. Sale fares book in to Z class and therefore should not include transfers. Fares are non-cancellable but can be changed for a fee and any fare-difference.

Departures from Manchester are also available in the Etihad sale, and Edinburgh flights will be included with the Abu Dhabi route’s launch on 8th June 2015.

Etihad Economy & Business Class Sale

by Continental Club on February 8, 2014  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , , , ,

EtihadEtihad has launched a sale in its Coral Economy and Pearl Business Class cabins, to its home hub of Abu Dhabi and to destinations worldwide. The sales cover travel dates up to the end of June for economy travel, and right through to the end of November in business.

Fares are valid from Berlin in this sale, a city that can be easily reached from many UK and European cities. Indeed, for United Kingdom-based travellers, the opportunity to avoid longhaul Air Passenger Duty potentially makes the fares particularly attractive.

Etihad A340

Bookings for the Coral Economy Super Sale must be made by 8th February 2014, and in the Pearl Business Class Premium Sale the booking deadline is 2nd March 2014. There’s a minimum 4 day and maximum 2 month stay requirement in economy, and 3 days/4 months in business.

Etihad Guest Up To 25% Off Redemptions

by Continental Club on January 22, 2014  |  Leave a comment • Tagged as: , , , , ,

EtihadMembers of the Etihad Guest frequent flyer programme can save up to 25% on the usual number of miles needed for a GuestSeat redemption in Diamond First Class, Pearl Business Class or Coral Economy Class.

The promotion is open to Etihad Guest members and the airline is promoting the programme with increased availability in all cabins.

Etihad 777

Reduced mileage travel is available between Abu Dhabi and 19 destinations worldwide, including Manchester, Dublin and Frankfurt in Europe; Chicago, New York and Washington in the USA, and Brisbane in Australia.

Tickets must be booked by 6th February 2014, and travel must be completed by 31st March 2014. The terms and conditions also mention that travel must commence by 1st February 2014, but this would seem to contradict the ticket booking deadline, and availability searches show departures up to the 6th.

There’s also a slight discrepancy between the mileages shown on the page linked to below, and the actual mileage needed. The variation is in the member’s favour though, with the advertised mileage of 34,180 Guest Miles from Manchester to Abu Dhabi in Pearl Business Class actually costing 34,062 Guest Miles.

Members needing to top up their Etihad Guest Miles balances prior to redeeming should remember that American Express Membership Rewards can be transferred to Etihad on a 1:1 basis, and recent transfers have posted between 1 and 4 working days after the request is made. Visit americanexpress.co.uk for more information on how to transfer Membership Rewards into Guest Miles.

Etihad Airways Diamond First Class – With Video

by Continental Club on December 30, 2013  |  2 comments • Tagged as: , , ,

EtihadIf you thought that ritzy, glitzy Dubai was  the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, then you’d be wrong. And if you thought that the national airline of the UAE was based there too then you’d score ‘nil points’ on that quiz question as well.

In fact, it’s Abu Dhabi that holds the capital city honour, and Etihad Airways that flies the flag as the UAE’s national airline.

Etihad A340

Established by royal decree in 2003, Etihad has become the world’s fastest growing airline serving destinations in 54 countries – including London Heathrow and Manchester in the UK.

It’s a three-class airline, and markets a specific name for each cabin class: Coral Economy; Pearl Business Class and Diamond First Class.

For our first ever flight with the airline, we aimed high – and our journey to Abu Dhabi was booked in Diamond First on the overnight EY4 from Munich’s Franz-Josef Strauss Airport.
