I posted a few weeks ago that Etihad was starting a second daily JFK flight. At that time the award availability was great and as of this morning..it’s not as good but still pretty fantastic. The second flight kicked off just this Saturday and today I see multiple flights with availability all the way to Male! Here’s the new schedule:
Interestingly enough, the new flights are being operated by two three-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft leased from Etihad strategic partner Jet Airways and on May 1 Jet Airways will take over the additional service. If you’re redeeming for First Class, you’ll still get a suite product with Jet.
Etihad is partners with both American AAdvantage (90k in First and 67.5k in Business) and ANA Mileage Club. However, the best way to check availability is via the Etihad Guest website.
