Deal Details

Last Edited by GoldenGriff December 25, 2014 at 01:44 PM
Huge price mistake currently going on for flights to Abu Dhabi from either JFK or ORD. Tons of availability for $178 RT from JFK with ORD being a bit more expensive at $208 RT. Just click on the dates in Google Flights to see the different rates and days. These are bookable on Orbitz currently and you can cancel within 24 hours with no penalty. Happy travelling!

Update - use http://www.onetravel.com to book now as Orbitz is close to dead. Prices are still live through there.

Also found DFW -> AUH for $322, LAX -> AUH for $458, SFO for $448 and Washington DC - AUH for $218. Hat tip to Flyertalk for discovering this (http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/mi...rt-ai.html).

This works for other destinations like Paris and Dublin as well, but you will have to connect in Abu Dhabi either on the first or return flight. As an example:

Etihad is a major eastern airline for those that assume it's horrible. Like most foreign airlines, it's actually better than Delta/American/United from an amenities perspective.

If you got in this deal (or even flying Etihad), register to get double miles: http://economymiles.eyworkflow.com/

Deal is DEAD as of 6:30 PM EST

If anyone wants to upgrade to an economy exit row seat (for extra leg room), you can call Etihad and they will upgrade you for $120 per person one-way. This price is from ORD -> AUH, so it might be different depending on where your origin is.

You have to have a connection/stopover in Abu Dhabi or this doesn't work.

Free bus ride to Dubai (75 minutes away) for any passengers:

Fares will be honored as confirmed by Etihad. Game, set, match.

It's bookable on Orbitz right now. Select your dates and then select Orbitz on the blue button below.

Or book directly from Orbitz.

AUD = Abu Dhabi. United Arab Emirates.

Before someone screams 'Is it safe?', yes, very safe and a wonderful city.
