The impressive Etihad Airways are currently offering substantial discounts on select Business Class and First Class return flights from the USA to the Middle East and beyond – when you book for two people.
The sale fares apply to flights from New York, Chicago, Washington DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas/Fort Worth to Abu Dhabi, Bangkok, Dubai, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, Maldives, Muscat and the Seychelles.
You need to book by 17 February, and travel by 18 June 2015.
Unsurprisingly, the premise for this sale is that it’s Valentine’s Day-related (“Love is in the Air with Etihad Airways“, apparently: a slogan that must have taken their marketing team literally seconds to come up with). As such, the two passengers must travel together on the same flight and in the same cabin to be eligible for this offer.
Some example prices for two people, return, are as follows:
- Chicago IL – Muscat – Business from $ 6848
- Dallas TX – Bangkok – Business from $ 7909
- Los Angeles CA – Kuala Lumpur – Business from $ 9832
- New York NY – Abu Dhabi – Business from $ 9554
- San Francisco CA – Dubai – Business from $ 9554
- Washington DC – Johannesburg – Business from $ 8435
So not discounted enough to get you frantically booking within minutes (and then considering class actions when they’re not honoured…), but certainly fares worth looking at if you’re considering a break or business trip to the included destinations.
If you have any problems finding the deals via the booking link, make sure you have “United States” set as your country, and then just click on the “Deals” tab, as follows:
There is currently good availability, too. Here is an example booking for the Texas-Bangkok return:
