Exraordinary Etihad deals from Australia

Tempted by this extraordinary deal from Etihad. Hot on their Australian status match promotion, the airline is offering ridiculously cheap fares to Europe and India from all Australian ports. I am trying to work out whether the airline has massive capacity or is trying to flex some muscle?

For example, Sydney to Amsterdam or Paris or Rome or Zurich  for $A1230 round trip. The next cheapest price from any airline is around $1430 with Vietnam Airlines and China Southern, both of which take much longer to get you to Europe.

The extraordinary bargain are the flights from Australia to India. For example, I found Sydney to Mumbai for $605 return!

Flights need to be booked by 15th August for departures between 1st October 2014 to 10th December 2014.  I used Skyscanner and found mixed availability in October departures but great availability for November. 

Etihad is the Abu Dhabi based airline of the United Arab Emirates.

They held a four star rating with Skytrax beforewithdrawing from the Skytrax rating system in June this year. Passenger reviews on Skytrax give them 59%. I rate them at 73% compared with my 92% rating for Emirates.
