[FARE GONE] Etihad Airways – $187 – $700: New York / Chicago / Dallas / Washington D.C. / Los Angeles / San Francisco – Middle East / India / Africa / Asia. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

Happy Holidays!

Etihad has some holiday specials for you folks in New York / Dallas / Chicago / Washington D.C. / Los Angeles / San Francisco to the Middle East, India and Africa. We did some primary checks for the following:

  • Johannesburg [JNB] – Under $700 from San Francisco
  • Mumbai [BOM] – Under $600 from San Francisco
  • Abu Dhahi [AUH] – $187 – $465 for all the listed cities.
  • Seychelles [SEZ] $588 from JFK [2/11 – 18]

We did a bunch of dates in February and availability was easy to find. These are not searchable on ITA, so let’s crowd source this.

Remember to enter our giveaway for $100 LoungeBuddy credit good for free lounge access.

Update 12/25/2014 @ 1:00AM Eastern – Availability so far: Late January – May, September – November. Stick to Monday – Thursday departures for best price.

Update 12/25/2015 @ 2:05AM Eastern – Availability to cities like Hong Kong, Manila etc per the comments starting around $270 from New York. Availability for Hong Kong seems to be available in the Fall. We did not find anything in the Spring.

Update 12/25/2015 @ 5:25PM Eastern – while we haven’t tried every city pair, JFK – Abu Dhabi is still bookable for about $250 on Priceline. Sample date 2/10 – 17.

Update 12/25/2015 @ 7:00PM Eastern – while there might still be some scattered dates available, this is mostly gone.

General advice for low price tickets like these: wait for the ticket number for booking anything that requires a pre-payment. In this instance, the ticket number will be in the form of 60XXXXXXXXXXX. There is also a risk free 24 hour cancellation period — buy then plan. If you can’t firm up your plans within those 24 hours, cancel risk free!

Sample Travel Date:

  • Sample from San Francisco
  • February 10th – 17th, 2015

Fare Availability:

  • We found dates from late January – May // September – November. There could be others.
  • Please note that while this fare is valid at time of posting, if this post is more than two days old, the fare is likely gone.

How to Search for Availability:

  • Not searchable on ITA. In general, stick to Monday through Thursday departures for best pricing.

Fare Class:

  • E Class. Etihad flights across the Atlantic will not earn AA miles, but flights from Abu Dhabi to rest of the World (excluding North America) will earn AA miles — REDEEMABLE AA miles. So for those who want to use this for status qualifying, NO, that’s not how it works. We are unsure how Jet Airways operated flights will be credited.

Routing:

  • SFO – ORD (Chicago) – AUH (Abu Dhabi) – ORD – SFO

Stopover:

Mileage:

  • 18,196 miles or 2.5 cents per mile. These fares will unlikely earn miles.

How to Book:

  • Support us by using our Priceline link to book. Make sure you enter “Etihad Airways” on the Airline textbox in the Advanced Flight Options section.

    It’s the law in the US. All airlines have to let you cancel within 24 hrs!

    @Brennan – Etihad offers a free bus to Dubai. http://www.etihad.com/en/experience-etihad/etihad-express/. If that doesnt work, there’s a paid bus option that is relatively inexpensive for the 2 hour ride. http://www.dubai-bus.com/buses-stops-map/dubai-inter-emirates-buses

    Chang 5 years ago Reply

    There’s nothing really much to do in Abu Dhabi to be honest. You can take a cab to visit the impressive Sheikh Zayed Mosque (6th largest in the world) and stroll along the Corniche in the evening.
    The other attractions like The Lourve and the Guggenheim are not ready yet I think.
    If you want more excitement, you can catch a cab (or a bus) to nearby Dubai which has more tourist attractions to occupy your time.

  • E 5 years ago Reply

    @Mary – I see Abu Dhabi as a “base” for a day or two. There are several sights to see but more in Dubai. If you are thinking about going for a honeymoon I would recommend going to a desert resort such as Qasr Al Sarab for a nice getaway. It is about a 1.5-2hr drive from Abu Dhabi. It is a very charming isolated resort that provides many different activities such as camel riding, dune bashing, archery, etc. I spent two days there and had an absolutely amazing and relaxing time.

    Mary 5 years ago Reply

    Thank you so much E for your time and your reply, I appreciate it! I will look into a desert resort and will more than likely use AUH as a base (if I can even convince the fiance to go). Happy holidays!

    Got 2 tix from ORD to JNB for $440 each a couple hours ago. Haven’t been able to find another deal at all, it looks like its all closed up

    I know that the TATL flights from North America to AUH don’t earn RDM on AA – but would JFK-MAN and CDG-JFK earn? They are on AA metal and E fare class.

    Seems like the deal is dead now 🙁

  • KR 5 years ago Reply

    Is anyone finding anything still available, pretty much to anywhere? I’m looking at Google, which shows flights, but when I go to Orbitz or Priceline from the Google site, the flights seem unbookable. I’m looking to go JNB, HKG, SGN, anywhere in Australia (never saw anything there, but maybe others did) in the fall for 10-14 days. Just wondering if anyone has had success this afternoon. 🙁

    Is this dead officially? Cant find anything for SFO to India any time

  • TravelDive 5 years ago Reply

    JFK-MNL in September with two stops coming in around $358RT. Everything else seems to be dead.

  • phatnesz 5 years ago Reply

    Found JFK – DEL for $425 in February on Priceline just now…

  • Ryan 5 years ago Reply

    Thanks for the heads up! Booked a JFK-AUH flight early this morning. Has anyone been able to select seats online for Priceline bookings? I’m unable to do so on Etihad’s site.

    TravelDive 5 years ago Reply

    Ryan to choose your seats call Etihad airlines. If you booked on priceline. If you booked on orbitz you should have gotten the option to choose seats, at screen just before paying.

  • John 5 years ago Reply

    There is still some availability as of 15:43 EST, at least from JFK. The problem is most E class fares have sold out on the way to AUH, but connecting through Manchester works on some dates.

  • april 5 years ago Reply

    any dates still available in october for jfk-auh?
    I keep getting this message:
    “As flight availability can change rapidly based on traveler demand, the flight that you have selected is no longer available. Please make another selection.”

  • Geoff 5 years ago Reply

    Many of the JFK-AUH flights are on Jet Airways. Reputation? Reliability?

    I took a recent trip from NYC to New Delhi on Jet and enjoyed the experience for whatever that’s worth.

  • Bruce 5 years ago Reply

    Not finding much of any great value out of SFO….to make it worse, flights to Asia route through Abu Dhabi, in some cases adding 24 hours or more to travel time

  • matt 5 years ago Reply

    Mostly dead, some dates and detentions still available.

  • Bobby 5 years ago Reply

    Just booked JFK-MNL 1/28-2/18 $412 R/T via Orbitz
    Stops in AUH for 13hrs on the way there and CDG for 10hrs on the way back.
    A night on the town in AbuDhabi and a day hanging with friends in Paris, nice little bonus!
    Now I need to decide where to go from Manila!

    It took ALOT of tries to find a set of days where the price didn’t update to something closer to normal.
    Use the +/- 3 day fare matrix, open each combination in a new tab, select your flight, cross your fingers, hope it says available!

    Jarold 5 years ago Reply

    I suggest to escape Manila asap and explore the islands. Palawan is very exotic and popular. Make Puerto Princesa your starting point from there you can check out El Nido, Coron. Happy travels. Philippines got thousands of islands to choose from.

  • Curt 5 years ago Reply

    I got excited when I saw Etihad credits at 100% mileage to American, until I saw that comes with caveats that mean no elite qualifying. Does anyone know of a way this trip could benefit my AA/US elite qualification for next year?

  • S.D 5 years ago Reply

    Just got JFK-AUH 10/5-10/12 for $263!

  • Trav 5 years ago Reply

    Some deals are still there.

    Just got JFK-CDG-AUH-JNB on 9/10, and the reverse on 9/30, for $368.

    That’s the only date I could get to price out for JFK-JNB in the fall, but maybe more.

    Suggestion- Try Priceline!

    Can’t get Orbitz to price out, but Priceline still seems to be working for some dates.

    The point is I have to fly to JFK to take this deal, not from my city

  • Kimmi 5 years ago Reply

    At 10:25pm I got JFK-CDG (stopover)-AUH then return for $259 incl tax! Apr 21-28

    Earlier today at 5pm I got a labor day safari trip — 9/2-9 JFK-CDG (stopover) – AUH – JNB and return for $368!

    I’m kicking myself for not jumping on this when I saw it around noon today. I just figured everything would be gone. Dumb dumb dumb. Never again. Next time I’ll at least try.

  • Sej 5 years ago Reply

    Is this still available? Anyone lead me to any of these – – – want to plan a getaway of some sort for 2015. Can’t find anything from JFK on any site.

  • tom watson 5 years ago Reply

    Its dead, even google flights are reflecting the higher prices.

  • Karin 5 years ago Reply

    How certain are we that these tickets will be honored? When will it be safe to book connecting flights and make hotel reservations?

    @Karin – did you receive the ticket number yet? if you have the ticket number, then you should be okay.,

    Karin 5 years ago

    Thanks @TFD! Yes, I got ticket numbers. So excited! Big THANK YOU for finding this deal! Several other outlets picked up on this deal and made it their own, but you put in the effort to research and publish it. Keep up the good work! Enjoy your trips!

    Is it true that there maybe some more discounted flights after 10p.m. tonight to these various locations? It just maybe a rumor that was started, but I wanted to check and be sure. I canceled my South Africa trip because I wasn’t sure of my dates and now I am regretting it. 🙁

    I did get Abu Dhabi 🙂
