Anika and I look forward to seeing 250 of you tonight at the first Head for Points Summer Party, sponsored by Etihad Airways. If you bought a ticket you should have received an email on Friday afternoon with all the details – check your spam box if you didn’t see it.
Thanks to Etihad’s support, your first drink is free and Etihad will also be giving away a number of great raffle prizes.
The first prize is one business class return ticket to Abu Dhabi departing from Heathrow or Manchester. If the winner would like to purchase additional tickets, the Etihad team will do their best to secure a special HfP winners rate.
On an A380 from Heathrow, the winner will experience the impressive Business Class Studio which I reviewed here (pictured below) and was very positive about. The seats turn into fully flat beds up to 6 feet 8 inches long, the IFE screen is huge 18 inches and Business Class passengers have access to the bar which is designed to have the feel of a Mayfair private club.
The two runner up prizes are a football signed by Manchester City’s first team (i.e. the Premier League winners!) and a pair of general access tickets to a Manchester City game.
A few Etihad staffers will be around if you want to learn more about the airline. There will also be a couple of people from IHG’s UK head office attending (Holiday Inn Camden Lock is our host) if you have any questions for them. Our luxury hotel booking guru Emyr Thomas will also be there if you want any holiday advice.
See you later – a few photographs will follow later in the week.
