Ultimate Rewards Miles for Etihad
I have 250k Ultimate Rewards and want to exchange them for business class from JFK to Seychelles. What is the best way to do this
You have more than enough points, which is good. Unfortunately, not a ton of airports fly to the Seychelles, so you are a bit limited.
For around 160,000 you could transfer to United or Singapore and look at Turkish or Austrian. That would probably be the simplest 1-stop option. For 2-stops, you could look at Ethiopian.
Sorry, I just read your title and realized you want Etihad.
For that, Korean is your only option. Search for award space on Etihads own site, then you’ll have to call Korean to book. You should be able to put flights on hold while points transfer.
