I traveled to Thailand with Etihad Airways. I want to go back earlier than planned. The one-way tickets I would get are as expensive as my original ticket, so I hope to get something less expensive.

Is there a way to change the date of my return flight?

    Have you called Ethihad and asked about changing your date? Your options are dictated by your fare bucket rules.

    what type of tickets have you booked? the answer should be in the T&C of your tickets.

Contact your travel agent or, if you don't have one, Etihad. Terms and conditions regarding changes are highly variable but most non-flex fares (not all!) do allow a change, for a fee (usually). Often in the region of $100 to $200.

If your ticket is fully-flex then you should expect no fee.

ANY change will of course be subject to seat availability which, since I assume you are considering an imminent change, could be a problem.


I contacted Ethihad and it turned out that changing the ticket would cost me as much as a new ticket from where I am currently staying. I took the latter option.
