If you transferred some American Express Membership Rewards points to Etihad Guest during the recent 25% transfer bonus, you got lucky!
Etihad has just announced a 25%-off sale on redemptions. There is one snag – London Heathrow is not included as a departure point.
Manchester is included, however. Dublin is also on the list.
Even if you are required to start your trip in London, you might find that you get a discount on any onward flight from Abu Dhabi to your final destination.
Manchester to Abu Dhabi in Business Class is now just circa 68,000 miles – which would have been just 54,000 Amex points if you had converted them during the transfer bonus. Remember that you only need 75% of the miles required to book – you can buy the rest for 0.6p per miles using ‘cash and miles’ (the option comes up on the payment page).
You must book by March 20th for travel up to December 31st.
