Etihad Business Sale to Asia: Starting at €1,246 /SEK 13,070 From Sweden

Etihad Airways Business Class Boeing 787

Etihad Airways is making a huge splash with its business class sale from Sweden. Singapore and Manila are offered for less than €1,246 (~SEK 14,790) ! Since Etihad doesn’t serve Sweden directly, each trip has two layovers. One in an European city that is served by Eithad and one in Abu Dhabi.

Two layovers and not the most attractive travel times – but an awesome price tag!

Most connections feature two trips in Etihad’s long haul business cabin. From Sweden, you will first be on board a flight with Etihad’s partner SAS taking you to another European city such as Manchester, Frankfurt, Zurich, Rome or Brussels. From there, the carrier from the United Arab Emirates will take over.

On most flights, the airline will operate a Boeing 777 or 787 Dreamliner. Check out these two flight reports to get a better impression of Etihad’s long-haul business class product:

Search & Book

Sadly, we weren’t able to find fare rules, so we do not know when this deal will expire. Stopovers in Abu Dhabi can usually be added free of charge. You will find reasonable availability from February to June 2020.

The fares will be displayed on Google Flights (instructions) but at a slightly higher price. To pay less, you can enter the dates in our flight search. While booking through an online travel agency may be the cheapest way, we still recommend using for safety reasons.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.
