Etihad has introduced two new options for its Etihad Guest frequent flier program members to transfer and get more miles.
Members can now transfer miles between accounts with a 10% fee and boost the miles earned from revenue tickets.
Members can now transfer miles between Etihad Guest accounts with a fee of 10% of the miles moved.
Etihad Guest members can boost the miles earned by 1, 2, or 3, at the price of 1.8 cents per mile.
The ability to consolidate miles between family and friends with a modest fee is a good option. Otherwise, those might expire or be used towards not-so-useful awards (not enough miles).
It is good to have the continuing ability to buy miles over possible purchase limits.
