Flying Etihad First Class in 2014?

Under $1,500 for a roundtrip CMB-DFW First Class ticket on Etihad, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, is an experience a group of flyers will experience in 2014. Yesterday, there was a mistake rate that lasted for hours flying from Colombo, Sri Lanka to DFW, Dallas Fort Worth.

Here is a photo spread of the Etihad exhibit at ITB Berlin travel trade show in March 2013.

I tried out the Etihad seat, opened the table and closed the doors.

But when I opened the doors again, I was still in Berlin.

I was aware of the Etihad CMB-DFW fare while it was live yesterday evening, in what was probably the first time in months I even looked at the FlyerTalk Mileage Run forum.

The airfare was too rich for my blood with a starting point in Sri Lanka. My last real mileage runs were 2007 on $450 business class mistake fare Delta flights between Buenos Aires and New York.

Sri Lanka and Abu Dhabi look like an exciting trip at a relatively low fare for what you experience in either business or first.

Enjoy your flights.

  1. I was lucky enough to get 2 bookings in, one in March and one in May, the only leg in First is between Abu Dhabi and Paris. It’s only Business between Paris and Dallas on a US based airline and we all know what crap your US airlines are, but I’ll grin and bare the noise and the cell phones and the loud talking for a few hours at this price. WITH ALL THE REALLY LOUD AMERICAN PEOPLE LOL! Sorry, what did you say, I couldn’t hear you! LOL
