  1. I have to wonder if this is why Etihad have been unable to pay the refund of $23,000 they have owed us since August 2023 – for an agent error. We are now left taking legal action against them to recover the funds. The customer service at this airline is absolutely shocking, confirmed by a quick look at their social media accounts.
