New York to Abu Dhabi for $178 round-trip


Thanks to the great folks at The Flight Deal and Twitter for keeping me up on Christmas Eve – my wallet, passport, and travel lust thank you.

I didn’t post at o’dark thirty this morning because I wasn’t sure how long these fares would last, but it’s been over 7 hours and the fares are still there.

Don’t want to miss out on a deal?  Here’s how to set on twitter alerts on your phone.


US to the World for $178 roundtrip

Etihad is once again having an airfare sale.

They’re offering cheap flights from the East and West Coast to several cities around the world such as Abu Dhabi, Johannesburg, Hong Kong, and Mumbai.

Here’s what I’ve found (all prices are round-trip):

Abu Dhabi

  • New York to Abu Dhabi $178
  • Chicago to Abu Dhabi $208
  • Los Angeles to Abu Dhabi $458
  • San Francisco to Abu Dhabi $498

Hong Kong

  • New York to Hong Kong $372


  • New York to Johannesburg $277


  • New York to Mombai $292
  • Chicago to Mombai $311
  • Los Angeles to Mombai $454
  • San Francisco to Mombai $534

Lots of cities are on sale, so play around with the destinations that are flown to by Etihad.

Google Flights is faster

Some folks prefer ITA Matrix, but I like using Google Flights because you can see airfare prices over a two month period.  And you can quickly forward (or backward) month by month.

Book now

You can buy a ticket now and figure out your plans later.  Thanks to the DOT for the 24 hour cancellation rule which lets you buy a ticket and cancel within 24 hours for a full refund.

So you book your ticket/s now, then figure out your plans.

I confess, I’m a sale junkie. Especially when it’s an airfare sale. I bought a few tickets, how about you?
