Etihad Airways has had several status match campaigns over the years and their latest one was launched back in February (read more here).
Instead of meeting the Etihad Guest Gold status requirement of 50,000 elite qualifying miles within the past 12 months, my status was upgraded this past week being short of less than 2,000 miles.
This status upgrade comes handy this coming week, as I am flying from Sao Paulo to Abu Dhabi. Will earn more miles and Etihad often upgrades elites if needed (rolls cabins from economy to business and from business to first). [click to continue…]

Note that I can shorten the emails and edit them for clarity. I always remove the personal information of both the reader and front line employees. If there are managers involved, I may leave their names intact, however. [click to continue…]

The Airlines of America (American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines) made the 55 page white paper public on Thursday accusing of Gulf airlines of Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways of unfair trade practices.
If these airlines are found to be receiving government subsidies, the United States can null the open skies agreement it has with United Arab Emirates and Qatar that was probably negotiated at times when nobody knew that the airlines from these countries would become global heavyweights.

Delta’s CEO was on Quest Means Business last night on the CNN and seems that the US airlines are gearing up the rhetoric against the Gulf airlines of Emirates and Etihad (both from the UAE) and Qatar Airways.
Now, Delta’s CEO is blaming the countries (all) on the Arabian peninsula for the September 11 attacks that lead the restructuring of the airlines in the United States and implying that UAE has something to do with them. [click to continue…]
American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines have started to lobby the US government to restrict the expansion of the gulf airlines namely Emirates, Etihad and Qatar due to alleged “subsidies”.
The United States and the gulf states have an Open Skies agreement that allows the airlines from these countries to freely operate flights in-between, as long as they don’t receive government subsidies. [click to continue…]
