Happy Client: Emma’s wedding dress adventure
2015 is a special year for me, not only did I become a ‘Mrs’ but I got to fly first class for the first time.
I live in the UAE and, like a lot of brides here, wanted to buy my wedding dress from my home country (in my case, the UK). That meant that earlier this year, in March, I needed to fly back to the UK for a final fitting and to bring my dress back with me in preparation for my wedding. I had always dreamed of flying first class but thought that it was a luxury completely beyond my budget. I had never collected miles or been too interested in airline points (other than collecting Emirates points each time I flew). However, I had heard of AwardButler through friends who had used and been very happy with the service. Since the trip back to the UK was a special one in the lead up to my wedding, I wondered if AwardButler could help me fly in style without spending the equivalent of my entire wedding budget…
As a starting point, I sent an enquiry to AwardButler via the form on the website. I was contacted shortly afterwards to confirm details and to discuss in further detail what I was looking for. At that stage, I was a little unsure what I was looking for but knew simply that I would love to fly premium class to the UK. I was fairly flexible on where to fly to and the dates which I understand now is very useful. Luckily, the staff at AwardButler were very helpful and gave me lots of suggestions as to what was possible.
I was told fairly quickly that I could fly on first class with Etihad between Abu Dhabi and London Heathrow which suited perfectly. Having discussed dates, AwardButler booked the flight for me and picked out my seat. Other than paying for the service which was well worth the money, I had little to do other than show up for my luxury flight and enjoy first class service all the way to the UK.
Overall, the service provided by AwardButler was great: timely, professional and the end result was a fabulous flight for a fraction of the cost. I would highly recommend AwardButler to my friends.
