Etihad Airways - Sale Prices

    Hi,

    Myself and a few friends are planning 2 weeks in Thailand around October/November this year.

    I notice Etihad have a really good sale on at the moment with return flights to Bangkok from around €650.
    Only problem is the sale is scheduled to end tomorrow! I've never booked with a long-distance airline like Etihad before so I'm wondering has anyone noticed if their prices typically shot up significantly after a sale period ends?
    I'd rather book my flights in a few weeks times but I'm worried I'll miss out on a good deal and would rather not pay a grand!

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    If you have the funds and think thats a good price and within your budget,then I'd take it before it's gone.
    There might be another sale before you want to go and there might not.
    Prices do go up a good bit after a sale.

    Once you've booked Never lament.

    You might want to ask here , they're usually fairly helpfull.

    Turkish Airlines usually offer flights to SE Asia for around the €700 mark so you should check them also.

    Cheers for all the advice!

    Managed to get the OK from the boss and agree dates with the mates so I just went ahead and booked it!
    Flights in October - €635 return with Etihad in total.

    Words can't describe how excited I am now :D


    Cheers again!

    Hopefully your itinery doesn't involve a flight on one of their Boeing 777's with their 10 abreast seating.

    is it that bad?

    Most airlines only seat 9 people in a row on a 777 so it might feel a bit cramped.
