Booking Qatar + Qantas Reward bookings via AA via Etihad.
Is it possible to book reward flights with American Airline’s partners such as Qatar and Qantas by booking American Airlines partner bookings through Etihad where the redemption costs are significantly lower?
Nope — you can only redeem miles according to the terms of the program you have miles with.
Etihad’s partner American Airlines chart is for American metal only, can’t even mix carriers on these rewards. Same with the others, like VA or ANA
