Etihad has launched an interesting cashback offer with American Express.
If you are targetted for this offer via your online card statement page, and you opt in, you will receive £100 cashback when spending £600+ online with Etihad.
The deadline for making bookings is 17th April. There is no deadline on when you fly.
Cumulative spend counts.
I suspect – but can’t be certain – that ‘taxes and charges’ payments on Etihad Guest redemptions would also trigger the cashback. As Etihad allows you to mix and match cash and miles whilst booking, you may want to use fewer miles and add some cash (assuming the taxes and charges are less than £600) to get to a £600 payment.
The offer is only valid on flights departing from the UK.
For lovers of the A380, Etihad is due to bring an A380 back into service on the London Heathrow route on 15th July. One flight a day will be on an A380, except for Sundays.
From 1st August this will increase to two flights per day (one on Sundays) whilst Heathrow will go ‘all A380’ from 1st November.
If you end up on an A350 instead, you are still a winner – these use the British Airways Club Suite seat in Business but to a higher specification, as our article shows.
Etihad also flies from Manchester.
Our flight reviews include the Etihad A380 Business Studio, the Etihad Boeing 777 First Class Suite and the Eithad A380 First Class Apartment.
