You can travel until 30th November. Deals are available in all classes and include (per person, based on two travelling in Business Class):
- Abu Dhabi £1,506
- Bangkok £1,533
- Singapore £1,765
- Hong Kong £1,737
- Phuket £1,734
- Seychelles £2,111
Availability seems OK. Even over October half-term (out 25/10, back 3/11) I could find Abu Dhabi at £1,572. Remember that you need to search for 2+ passengers and that the price shown by the Etihad website is for all of you, not per person. I was confused by that at first ….
My review of the impressive Business Studio seat on the A380, which is what you will get flying from Heathrow, is here and is pictured above. There is also a dedicated page on their website here which explains it in more detail.
Your best option to maximise your miles when paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold. This offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you when you book flight tickets directly with an airline. Our review of Amex Gold is here.
How to earn Etihad Guest miles via UK credit cards
As a reminder, Etihad no longer has its own UK credit card. However, you can earn Etihad Guest miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards. These are:
American Express Preferred Rewards Gold – 10,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
The Platinum Card from American Express – 30,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
American Express Rewards credit card – 5,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Etihad Guest miles. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Etihad Guest mile.
