Etihad offering 3x miles in Biz/First and 2x miles in Economy

A few days ago I wrote about some must sign-up for offers with Etihad Airways, including one to just sign up for a new account. Time to add one more to the list, if you are able to book any tickets on Etihad by March 22, 2015. Etihad Airways is offering an opportunity to earn triple miles if you are flying a premium cabin, and double miles if you are flying economy with them by May 31, 2015. You need to register here, and then book here. The registration needs to be done prior to making a reservation, so don’t miss out on that step.

PremierMiles Transfer: Etihad Guest

The year started on a not so great note, with Citibank announcing the devaluation of the PremierMiles transfer options. Over the next few days I am hoping to write posts evaluating in brief the options for transferring your PremierMiles, in case you are not happy with the new redemption rates of (2:1). Let us go straight off the bat with evaluating Etihad Guest. Since Jet Airways pulled out from the redemption options of PremierMiles in 2012, the only option for PremierMiles transfer for flying around India on award tickets was Air India or Kingfisher (since defunct). But Etihad joined the PremierMiles transfer options a while ago, and this seems like a great option to be able to fly in India,…

Using Etihad miles to fly Jet Airways around India

One of the most attractive award charts out there for travel around India, is that of Etihad Airways, which offers some sweet redemptions on Jet Airways. Check out this PDF here which lists the routes and mileage requirements per sector. I have had the intention to use this chart to book tickets on Jet Airways, but never had any sectors to try it out on, since revenue tickets are usually cheap enough. Recently, however, I was in a situation where I needed to book up family for an up coming trip, and revenue tickets were expensive, and this was the perfect time to try out this method. I call the Etihad award chart sweet, because it has some real gems…

Etihad Gold till March 2016 with Citi Prestige

One of the key reasons for me to have signed up with the Citi Prestige Credit Card which was launched in India earlier this year, was the plethora of status it comes with in terms of travel. Some of it I need, some of it I don’t. One of the first requests I filed in to get a Status upgrade was on Etihad. Etihad offers Gold status, which is their second-from-top status to Citi Prestige Members. This could be useful for members in India since you are getting an alternative to Jet Airways’ Gold status, and it comes with pretty much similar benefits on Jet Airways as Jet Airways’ Gold status, apart from being useful on other airlines such as…
