Etihad 48-hour 25% off sale on India to USA fares!

Etihad Airways is offering a special 48 hours sale (valid till 14th October 2011) on economy class tickets from India to all its US destinations.

Etihad, the national airlines of the UAE and cousin to Emirates, came up with a new deal as of today to bump up volumes on its Shorthaul product from India to Abu Dhabi and the long-haul product to the USA. In India, Etihad flies from 8 airports including Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and all the 3 airports in Kerala. After a quick transit at Abu Dhabi, you are off to New York or Chicago on an A340-500.

This is a sweet deal if you are intending to head up to the USA from India before 30th November. Ticketing conditions allow a 12 month stay in the USA before you return, so for approx. INR 42,000 I’d really recommend this to be a sweet deal, for a product from the middle-east, where service and hospitality is usually good!

PS: The ticket from the USA to India, it also priced at approximately 1040 USD. Looks like a reverse deal is also working. However, on the USA site, there is another promo for bookings till 31 October and travel between January and May 2012 which prices the tickets similarly and allows a 4 month stay.
