Etihad slash fares

The Abu Dhabi-based carrier stated the they reduced air fares by 40% for the month of May.

They said that this was not linked to a slump in global oil prices nor was it a response to Emirates' decision earlier on Sunday to remove a fuel surcharge on all its airfares. 

APPARENTLY it is because they were the leading airline in the Middle East at the region's World Travel Awards. 'We are very excited to offer these sale fares to complement the win, designed to help all our UAE based customers choose their perfect holiday or short break during May," said Hareb Al Muhairi, Etihad Airways' vice president of UAE sales.

I think its just a strategic business move in light of the volatile state of oil prices. Your views?
