I'd always be worried about flying with them. I certainly wouldn't want to join their awards scheme.

Why not? We've flown Etihad to Africa more than once with no problems whatsoever. Granted this is still Darwin's planes and crew under the Etihad banner but...what am I missing?

Note that the weekend of August 1 is not blacked out for this deal...in case you want to escape for a little weekend holiday.

Oh no, trying desperately to book a trip to Florence (finally made the decision after 24h of indecisiveness), and now whenever I try the website it says its experiencing technical difficulties!

And now the flight price has gone up

I see that too. Now you have to leave on a Thursday and come back Monday to get the cheap price for a weekend, but some are still awful prices. I bet travel agencies bought up all the tickets. So glad we booked without hesitation and decided to figure out the rest later!

Did you book Florence? That's a great price! And you'll even get snacks on the plane and be able to carry luggage/kid stuff without paying extra. Mmmm gelato!

Looks like if you're willing to fly on a Friday or Monday that could work.
