Etihad Guest is offering 25% off saver award redemptions in any class of service.
Book online only by March 20 for travel through December 31 using promo code REDM25.
You may not already have Etihad Guest points. That’s fine, they are a Citi ThankYou Rewards transfer partner.
The offer is for select destinations, but includes Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, and Washington Dulles (787!) – Abu Dhabi.
Here’s DC – Abu Dhabi.
The Etihad program is roughly distance-based in pricing, so Europe – Abu Dhabi is far cheaper. Here’s Dusseldorf-Abu Dhabi.
American AAdvantage awards remain a better deal for first class generally — 90,000 points for US – Abu Dhabi and even beyond within the region and 40,000 points for Europe – Abu Dhabi and beyond. Roughly speaking this deal brings the Etihad Guest price down to the AAdvantage price for non-stops with Abu Dhabi as the start or end. But it opens up the possibility of a really good deal with Citi ThankYou points.
Here’s the full list of eligible cities:
- Washington – Dulles
- Kuala Lumpur
- Los Angeles
- San Francisco
Airbus A380 destinations London, Sydney, and New York JFK are not included.
