UK to Abu Dhabi and Dubai from £1468
The deal is available from London to both Abu Dhabi and Dubai. For Abu Dhabi, you have the option of flying on Swiss to Zurich and then travelling on with Etihad to Abu Dhabi. You can also do the same with Lufthansa via various German cities. Make sure you look at the aircraft type as the B787 that operates from Zurich and other cities is far superior in terms of business class than the B777. The B787 has the Business class studio which you can read my review of here.
For Dubai, you can travel on either Swiss or Lufthansa. I would probably go for Swiss as a single traveller. In a couple there is less disparity between the carriers of you can get a window seat pair.
