We’re trying to focus on flight deals for next year, at least until the coronavirus disruption starts to subside.

For those thinking of a trip to Europe in 2021, Etihad is currently offering cheap deals on round-trip business class tickets to Italy, flying the Boeing 787 Dreamliner all the way.

Etihad Delhi-Rome business class fares

Etihad’s promotional business class fares are to Rome, and you can even plan your Italian adventure for the Valentine’s Day period.

Etihad 787 Business Studio

All legs on this itinerary are (at least for now!) scheduled to be operated by Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, which feature Etihad’s best business class product, the Business Studio (the same seat found on the airline’s A380s).

The flat-bed seats are arranged in a staggered 1-2-1 configuration, with some seats closer to the aisle, and some closer to the windows.

Etihad promotes a “dine anytime” service, allowing you to choose what you want to eat, and when. There’s also on-board wifi.

Summing Up

With a bit of luck, 2021 will be a much more stable year for aviation, and we’ll all be able to take to the skies again.

This is a great price for business class travel to Europe with a world-class airline, especially as all four legs are on long-haul aircraft with seats that go fully-flat.
