by John Ollila on February 5, 2014

Etihad Guest has a fantastic promotions for bookings made on its website between February 4 and 15, 2014. You will earn 25,000 bonus miles.

Edit: It was mentioned on FT (access here) that this would only be valid on return tickets flown before December 30, 2014, and that it would be limited to trips starting in Abu Dhabi.

Edit: Etihad has now updated the terms and conditions of this offer. You can earn the bonus of maximum of two times and the travel must originate from Abu Dhabi and has to be return (one-ways not eligible).

Etihad has not set a date when the flight has to be consumed, so this would imply that as long as the booking window is open.

You can access this offer on Etihad’s website here.

It is unclear from the promotional terms and conditions, whether this apply for only one or multiple bookings. It is clear, however, that the booking(s) must have been made on Etihad.com and you must have your Etihad Guest number attached to the traveler.

Etihad promises to deposit the bonus miles within two weeks after the promotional period has ended.

Etihad has separate promotion for double miles in economy (select routs) and for all the routes in business and first class for travel by March 31, 2014. You can access that promotion here. You can always earn double miles on Etihad’s new routes for 30 days (read more here).
