Targeted: Transfer AMEX Points To Etihad And Get A 20% Bonus

Login to your AMEX account to see if you’re targeted to get a 20% bonus when you transfer points to Etihad through 4/4.

 

Etihad has a distance-based award chart for partner airlines, like AA and El Al. You’ll have to call Etihad to book most partner award flights.

A short-haul flight on AA up to 500 miles in distance is just 6K miles in coach or 10K in business, excluding the 20% bonus.

One-way rates on El Al, excluding the 20% bonus:

  • Larnaca to Tel Aviv will cost 6K coach, 7.5K premium, or 10K business each way.
  • Athens to Tel Aviv will cost 12K coach, 13K premium, or 20K business each way.
  • Budapest, Dubai, Rome, or Vienna to Tel Aviv will cost 15K coach, 19K premium, or 30K business each way.
  • Milan or Zurich to Tel Aviv will cost 23K coach, 25K premium, or 40K business each way.
  • London or Paris to Tel Aviv will cost 28K coach, 31K premium, or 50K business each way.
  • Boston or NYC to Tel Aviv will cost 67K coach, 74K premium, or 120K business each way.
  • Fort Lauderdale, Miami, or LA to Tel Aviv will set you back 75K coach, 90K premium, or 140K business each way.

The 20% bonus will make those rates more palatable. NYC to Tel Aviv will cost 55.8K AMEX points in coach, 61.7K AMEX points in premium, or 100K AMEX points in business each way.

You can search for El Al award space on Alaska Airlines’ website and call Etihad to book.

You can spend 160,000 miles (133.3K AMEX points) plus $544 to fly one-way in Etihad first class apartments. If you’re dreaming of Etihad’s Residence though, it appears that the upgrade option is only available on paid tickets.

 

Two huge caveats with Etihad miles is that the award cancellation fees are usurious and miles will now expire after 18 months, unless you credit a flight to the program.
