Etihad Qs: IAD – AUH (first class), AUH – BLR (business ) and BLR to CCU (business)
I am back with Etihad questions!! SO my flight is booked
IAD – AUH (first class)
AUH – BLR (business ) and BLR to CCU (business)
1) Can I get 3 rides – in Washington, and 2 in bangalore since i essentially have a 23 layover and i am staying at a relatives place?
2) I have ~8 hours in Abu Dhabi – What are my options other than the first class lounge? Am I allowed to go outside? Will they provide a hotel (You can see I am an economy class passenger through my questions!)
3) I logged into Etihad site using the record locator and it allows me to see the booking, but i can’t manage seats etcâ€¦is that weird? BTW what seats would you suggest for B787 first class). Just me traveling so obviously window!
4) Any other value added services I should know of? The closest thing I have come to premium is, when United gave me a free premium economy upgrade when I asked nicely! lol – And this entire ticket cost me like 13 bucksâ€¦I spend more than that on dinner sometimes. the miles surely because of the cc sign upsâ€¦you guys are crazy informativeâ€¦..any hater who tells you any different, you give them my email.
@ Rachit — Hah, sounds like a great redemption, and thanks!
I don’t believe you’d be eligible for car service in Bangalore, though you could certainly ask. You can enter Abu Dhabi if you want to clear customs/immigration, though I probably wouldn’t mess with it on an eight hour connection, personally. I would try the seats again later or call — it seems to be hit and miss lately for some reason.
