Etihad has some rather reasonable business class fares out of London for the long haul traveller who doesn’t mind a stop in Abu Dhabi.
Various destinations are up for grabs from London include:
- Abu Dhabi from £1149
- Johannesburg – £1499
- Seychelles from £1499
- Male from £1999
- Bangkok – from £1499
- Hong Kong from £1499
- Singapore from £1599
- Kuala Lumpur from £1599
- Melbourne from £2999
- Sydney from £2999
The fares have a book by date of 3rd June, for travel between 1st July 2019 – 31 August 2019 for most destinations (except Australia – which is limited to 5th August 2019 – 31st August 2019.
Going through the T&C’s – of note
- Flight/Day restriction and Blackout periods may apply.
- Weekend surcharges may apply.

Note, that in my limited experiments getting this fare to work with Multi-city is a challenge (with the fare only pricing up when doing “direct” return tickets with a short stop in Abu Dhabi) – therefore getting to work with the free Abu Dhabi stopover offer may not work.
It’s not the greatest return fare in the world – but it does offer a reasonable price for those who wish to travel in the summer and have a simple departure point of London Heathrow to get to – combined with Etihads on-board product.
And as for the miles, it’s time to run it through https://www.wheretocredit.com/etihad to see where the miles belong best.
