Two weeks ago we ran a competition with Etihad to promote their new daily Boeing 787 flights from Heathrow, giving away tickets to see either Muse or Metallica live at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester.
We can now announce the lucky winners. The winners of one pair of tickets for Muse are:
- Daniel F.
- Nick S.
The winners of one pair of tickets for Metallica are:
- Jonathan J.
- Peter E.
Congratulations and enjoy the concerts!
As a reminder, Etihad has now launched the new daily flights from Heathrow to Abu Dhabi which are in addition to the existing three A380 services. The new Boeing 787 flights will use the same Business Class Studio seat which is on the A380 and which Rob reviewed here and rated very highly.
There will be four daily flights between 26th May and 22nd June, increasing to five daily flights from 23rd June until 28th September. After that it will return to four daily flights until the end of the Summer season on 26th October.
How to earn Etihad Guest miles from UK credit cards (August 2021)
