The Scotsman has reported that Etihad is planning to drop services from Edinburgh from October.
The service is believed to have been performing poorly. Pressure from Qatar Airways, which is upgrading their Edinburgh route to an A350 from October, and from the upcoming Hainan Airlines Beijing service is also believed to have contributed.
The report has yet to be confirmed by Etihad and at present flights can still be booked for November onwards.
How to earn Etihad Guest miles via UK credit cards
As a reminder, Etihad no longer has its own UK credit card. However, you can earn Etihad Guest miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards. These are:
American Express Preferred Rewards Gold – 10,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
The Platinum Card from American Express – 30,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
American Express Rewards credit card – 5,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Etihad Guest miles. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Etihad Guest mile.
