So many people dream of flying first class sometime but are made to do with Business class. However, Etihad and American Express have come up with a wonderful promotion that would allow you to automatically upgrade you to first class if you buy a business class ticket with them. Of course, fares would be little higher than lowest business class fare but it would definitely be much lower than First class for sure.
Etihad doesn’t fly First class everywhere, though. This offer is available on selected routes. Etihad flies 5 routes to Europe that has a first class configuration. London, Paris, Munich, Milan and Frankfurt. So if you wish to fly from Mumbai to any of these destinations or for once would love to try Etihad First class at price of economy, this is an excellent deal.
Without saying it goes, you need to own American Express credit card.
If you would love to try Airbus 380 with Residence product than it is perfect chance to book Mumbai(BOM) to Paris (CDG) via Abu Dhabi (AUH). It is always better to book fares via other cities than Abu Dhabi. So if you book Mumbai to Abu Dhabi on a separate ticket and Abu Dhabi to Paris on a separate ticket then prices go up significantly.
You would be flying Boeing 777 on BOM-AUH and A380 on AUH-CDG. I might definitely jump for this deal.
