Use of Etihad Points
Now that Etihad has greatly reduced the value of redeeming points on Brussels Airlines, what is the next best option(s) for redeeming Etihad Guest points?
The old rates we’re ridiculously, fantastically cheap. The devaluation, which sucks especially without prior notice and raised rates quite a bit is still pretty good. I say it’s still worth booking.
The new rate is 88k round trip in business compared to 140k when using UA miles is fantastic. SQ charges 130k for the same thing. Aeroplan charges 110k (115k depending on if and where youre connecting to).
