Etihad just sent out an offer for double miles for business class and/or triple miles for first class for travel between January 21 and February 4 that is valid ONLY for bookings that are made from January 20 to February 3, 2013. This appears to be a targeted offer and you can access it here.
The other year, I credited bunch of business class flights that I took on Sri Lankan to Etihad. There weren’t any better choice for them. In 2012, I took advantage of Etihad’s offer of matching a status with a competing airline. I am now Etihad Gold until sometime in 2014.
I cannot get my head around these Etihad’s offers that I have received previously as well. Offer for double or triple miles is great, but the ticketing and flying window is really too short. How many can and will ticket and fly within the next two weeks after receiving the offer?
I really like offers for double/triple miles that I could double dip with my Etihad Gold status, but the offer window is way too short.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
This offer is exclusive to a select segment of Etihad Guests, and is available by invitation only.
