Big news coming from Etihad today as news became public that President and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Aviation Group James Hogan will step down in the second half of 2017.
As part of our Reader Question series today we’d like to feature one request that reached us yesterday asking if it makes sense to pay for Etihad Airways cash upgrades.
Etihad Airways surprisingly announced that they would cut between 1,000-3,000 jobs amid a slowdown of the aviation market that saw the Middle Eastern Carrier expanding rapidly in recent years.
Etihad’s decision to step on the brakes could signalize a more conservative approach from the Gulf airlines that grew in both seat capacity and staff, but might have to scale back in order to keep pace with the market.
Etihad Airways has launched a triple Guest miles campaign a flight flown between November 28 – March 1, 2017, and booked November 28 – December 17.
The offers appears to be targeted as there are no ways to register for this offer on Etihad’s website. You should check if you have received an invitation.
Sebastian recently wrote about (read more here) the latest status match campaign that Etihad Airways this time offered for readers of on English newspaper.
A LoyaltyLobby reader alerted me that Etihad Airways had significantly adjusted the terms and conditions attached to this promotion.

Eithad Guest has published a status promotion for readers of the British newspaper The Times which appears to be open for all with no specific requirements other than reading the paper in whatever way.
A LoyaltyLobby reader sent me an email about an issue his family was having with Etihad Airways for a trip canceled due to flight delays/cancellations and issues dealing with American Airlines.
Etihad Airways has effective today (October 4) aligned the elite benefits among its Etihad Airways Partners airlines frequent flier programs (of which it owns a stake).
In addition to Etihad Airways these benefits apply: airberlin, Alitalia, Air Serbia, Air Seychelles, Etihad Regional, Jet Airways and NIKI.
