We are big fans of Etihad and its frequent flyer programme, Etihad Guest. The flight experience on Etihad is excellent, while Etihad Guest frequently offers very competitive redemption flights, with good availability in all classes.
If you’re not already a member, now is also a very good time to join Etihad Guest. It is currently offering 1000 free miles to anyone who joins up and completes their “first earn transaction” before 31 March 2015. The key point here is that there is a really easy “earn transaction” available – you will get 150 miles for reviewing a hotel with holidaycheck.com.
