Their premium products get good reviews from the TRs I've seen.

I'm asking about economy (as in this deal), though I would guess if their premium products are good, their economy is probably pretty standard.

Yea, it didn't seem like a budget type airline.
Many of their planes have been leased out to TK, TG, and Etihad.

Dates and nonstop routings seem to be disappearing (early september to JNB for example, plus I'm only seeing the fare to AUH through MAN), just due to people buying up all the availability.

Play around with it. This was a 3 days in AUH and 10 days in JNB.

Just booked one.

Trying to find this type of stopover and tickets are showing up as 499 (already booked 5 tickets at 250/piece, would rather with a long stopover). Any dates in march in the 200 range??

Also, is there any way to upgrade to business or first using miles?

Certainly for April and March to JNB. I (along with many others) did manage to book to JNB for Pesach.

Thanks so much AJK and Dan. You guys have no idea how much this means to so many people who don't have mileage stockpiles and use these deals to see their family, not tour.

I booked Mumbai in March and JNB in September.


Any accommodation recommendations?

Are you booking for yourself or others?

I know, and I've already booked to JNB and to AUH this morning. But the prices are slightly worse than what I would have gotten last night.

Odd some dates are cheaper via Expedia, for example Dallas to Abu Dhabi 02/04-02/11 is $328 on Priceline and $306 from Expedia.
