I am flying from London to Abu Dhabi in Economy Saver, and back in Economy Flex. Which of the features are included?

For cancellations, the most restrictive rules will apply for your entire journey. All other features are offered for each leg of your journey meaning you can choose different sets of features on your outbound and return trip. This gives you greater control over your journey. You can choose to pay for features on the legs where you need them, and save money when you don’t.

I have booked on Etihad but part of my journey is on a partner airline. Which features are included?

Two features; change and cancellation rules and earning of mileage accrual will be offered whichever partner you fly with.

However, we want to offer you the widest choice of destinations and so have partnerships with many airlines. It is not possible to align all of our fare choice benefits on all of these carriers. If one of the features offered as part of our fare choices is particularly important to you, visit our partner airline’s website to see if they offer it to their customers.

I have purchased a ticket with Etihad and I am unsure what I will receive. How can I check?

The easiest way to check what fare you have purchased is to retrieve your itinerary through Manage my booking

Your baggage allowance will also be printed on your ticket, and we offer an Etihad Guest miles calculator which indicates exactly how many miles you will receive for each trip travelled.

What is priority check-in for Economy Class guests?

When you are in Abu Dhabi, priority check-in is a dedicated check-in counter for guests who have purchased the Economy Flex fare choice. In all other destinations, guests who have booked the Economy Flex fare choice will be able to use the Premium check-in counter.
