Etihad offering 3x miles in Biz/First and 2x miles in Economy

A few days ago I wrote about some must sign-up for offers with Etihad Airways, including one to just sign up for a new account. Time to add one more to the list, if you are able to book any tickets on Etihad by March 22, 2015. Etihad Airways is offering an opportunity to earn triple miles if you are flying a premium cabin, and double miles if you are flying economy with them by May 31, 2015. You need to register here, and then book here. The registration needs to be done prior to making a reservation, so don’t miss out on that step. I love the Etihad products, and their new planes are even more exciting. Join over…

USA pre-clearance at Abu Dhabi now for all Etihad flights

One of the USPs for Etihad is to have Abu Dhabi airport as their home airport. Actually, they go hand in hand. Back in 2013, they managed to get approval for a Customs & Border Protection outpost from the USA, commonly known as preclearance.

I did, and it was a total buzzkill for my Abu Dhabi – JFK First Class flight experience. Ever since EY acquired a stake in Jet Airways, they’ve been offering a second flight to the…

Etihad launches its new livery on the B787 & the A380

Etihad has been undergoing a secret makeover for months, but they don’t make a secret of it when they are ready. As a 11-year young airline, I really love their luxury product in the First Class, however, they’ve been upping the game with their new cabin products, including the Residence which they will launch on their A380 later this year. Not just that. There has been a lot of discussion around the interwebs of a new livery that would come in on the new planes. I absolutely love the old one, but the new livery was just introduced a couple of days back on the A380 that Etihad has on order… And then just a short while back, on the…
