Etihad Airways – Etihad Guest loyalty program has never ending bonus award and tier miles promotions that are sometimes overlapping with extremely confusing terms and conditions (sometimes contradictory).
I have covered my own past issues of getting some bonus tier and award miles to post (read more here) and recently a LoyaltyLobby reader had similar issue (read more here) that was resolved after emailing the CEO.
You can access Etihad Guest program here.
Here’s what just posted to my account:
Alitalia had a fare sale to Phuket last year and I booked one business class return. The flights between Abu Dhabi – Phuket were operated by Etihad Airways, although on AZ code.
I had registered all the Etihad Guest bonus miles promotions that I have covered here on LoyaltyLobby. I was not aware of that these AZ coded EY flights would have been eligible for any bonus miles but apparently I was wrong.
“Triple Premium Bonus Miles Offer” miles posted 10 to 15 days later I had taken the flights.
If you are taking Etihad Airways flights, it always make sense to sign up for the promotions, however, consuming they might be. You can get sometimes get very lucky like on my case above. Nothing is better than to get some surprise bonus miles!
