Etihad Early Bird Economy & Business Class Sale 2015

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.

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.

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.

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.
