Merry Christmas to all from Etihad Airways. Right now they have flights from as low as $187 TOTAL roundtrip, including all taxes from JFK- Abu Dhabi. I recommend searching on and playing round with dates- generally leaving Monday-Thursday Jan-March, but there may be wider availability.  These won’t earn miles in most US programs, but you may be able to collect in Etihad Guest or partners like Alitalia.

You can’t book flights through Google Flights, so “sniff out” the cheap fares and then go to sites like to actually book the tickets. Orbitz will likely show a higher price ($900ish), but when you click through the price will drop dramatically and you’ll get the “good news” message below. Orbitz offers a 24 hour risk free cancellation so I recommend booking now and deciding within the next 24 hours if you’re actually going to go, because these won’t last long. You can cancel free of charge until 10pm on December 26, per the screenshot below.
