I am planning to fly our from YYZ to DEL (Depart 15th December, Return- 15th Janaury) on a round trip ticket with Etihad on business class. However, the problem is that the business class section is completely booked. How likely is the case that the business class section is going to have free seats as the departing date approaches. Has anyone experienced such an issue? Help is much appreciated. Thanks,
Sold out usually means sold out.
Airlines do not hold back seats during the sales process. Your best hope is that there are some seats in a code share block held by another airline. You should check with the other airlines that sell the flight(s) as a code share to see if they can sell you a business class ticket on that routing.
Otherwise your only hope is that someone cancels their current booking.
