Its BACK!! Ethiopian Air is offering their BOGO sale again! Celebrating the official joining of the Star Alliance which is fantastic news for those collecting miles!

I started doing pre-bookings over the weekend and now the sale is in full swing! I've had a TON of questions so I thought I would do a little Q&A here in an effort to best serve you and to be as efficient with my time as possible I hope this helps. Check it out below.

If this sale is anything like the last one space goes QUICK and I get swamped with multiple requests.

1. Can I cancel my tickets I just booked and get the BOGO? Yes, as long as you have refundable tickets and your travel begins and ends between Feb 1 and March 30.

2. Can I book an adult and a child on the same deal? Yes, you can as long as you are departing at the same time and plan to travel together the entire trip.

3. Can I guess dates and book them but plan to change them later? Yes. However this may not be cost effective for you if you have to do a change, you're looking at a minimum of $600 in change fees. If you are anticipating an embassy appt you could choose dates and just plan to go no matter what on those dates.

4. What is the change fee? The change fee is $300 per person plus any fare difference.

5. What are the restrictions? There are three main ones. a. You MUST book your tickets between December 19th and December 23rd. b. You MUST travel between February 1 and March 30. c. You cannot depart from DC on a Saturday and you cannot return home on a Friday or a Saturday.

6. Can I go somewhere other then Addis? Yes! This BOGO deal is for ANY destination that Ethiopian Air flies.

7. What are the change fees? The change fee is $300 per person plus any fare difference.

8. How do I book? Email me your dates, full names/birth dates, departure/ destination cities and I will check what the fare will be. You'll have 24 hours to decide if you want to purchase. Easy peasy lemon squeasy.

If you have any other questions feel free to comment, email or call me and I'll be happy to help!
