Can't afford the business class flight prices but don't think my back could cope with the full 26+ hours journey anymore.
Is there a way to do the little hop and a jump flight of around 8 hours to Dubai/Abu Dhabi/Singapore etc (really don't care which as I will be in transit) and continue on with the 14 hour leg in business (then again in reverse on the return trip).
I've contacted Etihad direct who say that this isn't possible with them. Before I try others does anyone know if it is possible and what the percentage price difference roughly is added to a pauper class fare return?
Thanks in advanceEdited: 4:24 am, May 20, 2013
