Maximizing miles on Etihad ticket (AA or Etihad Guest?)
Hi, I have an upcoming flight on Etihad Airways (‘A’ class ticket – first class from ICN to AUH) purchased through Etihad site, and it’s operated on Etihad as well. I am wondering whether I should earn with AA or Etihad Guest. AA site indicates that this set of Etihad ticket will earn miles and bonus miles, but not EQM, is that right? If that the case, am I better off earning on Etihad Guest program? I am a Platinum AA, but no status at all with Etihad Guest. Any input is appreciated! Thanks!
I’d credit to whichever program you use most often – in this case AA, unless you already had something planned for those EY miles. While you dont earn EQMs, the redeemable miles are still of value.
Thanks David! Likely will credit to AA!
