EY: A380 Apartments ARN-ICN for £2,157 Return

Not quite as cheap as some of the Lufthansa and Swiss companion fares, but still a solid rate for one of the best first class seats in the sky. The round trip flights between Abu Dhabi and Seoul will give you 20+ hours in the Etihad A380 Apartment. The Euro portions are in business class, but the ZRH-AUH legs still feature Etihad's fantastic 787 seat. These can be purchased as solo fares.

Availability is scattered throughout the winter, but pretty open for the spring. The best availability can be found from April through June. If you're struggling with availability, give Gothenburg a try (GOT). There's some really solid availability out of there for about £200 more.

I think you would want to avail yourself to a routing such as ARN-CDG/LHR-AUH-ICN to get F the entire way.

Nice find, jampoco. Looks like it's bookable through Bookwithmatrix too.

Noob question, but when price drops like these occur, does the point redemption rate generally correlate similarly?

How to connect via London?

Where can I search and book so I can travel via London or Paris from ARN to get more F. Tried to book but can only get via Zürich or Athens in May.

After seeing Paula's post, I decided to check out Seat24. Only £2,120 with all four long-haul flights in the A380 Apartments. If you don't care about those (which I'm not sure why you wouldn't) you can get the price down to £2,102 on Momondo.

34 hours in the Etihad Apartments anyone?

I did this offer in October! The offer has been around for a while and still going

Just to note that I put together a routing to get F on every leg and apartments, which I couldn't get to price up on the website. But I called Etihad and they booked it for me, waiving the phone booking fee. So that's an option too.

If interested, my blog has how I booked it, and also my reviews of the A380 apartment vs the first class seat on the 777.

This fare has been around for a while now and discussed HERE, so mods might wanna merge?
I will fly this next week via LHR both ways - booked back in Sep on EY website directly by using multi-city-search after checking ITA for possible dates. 2 free nights with Premium stopover and complimentary chauffeur service (in AUH only) were easy to book as well.
