Etihad Guest Gold Requalification Offer (Targeted)

Etihad Guest just emailed me a requalification offer to retain the Gold status that I got through a status match back in last year (read more here).


Etihad is offering me double elite qualifying miles/segments for travel between October 1 and December 31, 2013.

Note that this is NOT a double redeemable miles offer. Etihad guest will only double the elite qualifying miles/segments.

You can access the Etihad’s web page for this targeted offer here.


The problems that I have with Etihad is the fact that it is not aligned with any of the alliances and that you can earn elite qualifying miles only on airlines that use Etihad Guest as their frequent flier program or those that Etihad has an equity investment (airberlin, Virgin Australia etc).
