Etihad Guest miles do not expire so long as your account has least one earning or redemption activity every 18 months. This policy was announced in November 2019, but the website has yet to be updated. 

What can you do with Etihad Guest miles?

ANA’s new Business Class is redeemable through Etihad Guest between Tokyo and New York

Etihad Airways is not part of any alliance, yet they have a wide variety of bilateral redemption partners. I’ve previously written about the many use cases for Etihad Guest miles, but to summarize:

  • GOL Airways domestic flights within Brazil from 3,000 miles
  • Air Serbia intra-Europe flights from 5,000 miles
  • Bangkok Airways from Singapore to Koh Samui in Economy/Business Class for 7,500/10,000 miles
  • Sri Lankan Airways from Singapore to Colombo in Business Class for 28,000 miles
  • Asiana from Singapore to Seoul/USA in Business Class for 30,000/88,000 miles
  • ANA from Tokyo to New York in Business Class for 82,000 miles (now without fuel surcharges)

You can view Etihad Guest’s full range of redemption partners and their award charts here. Etihad Guest will pass on fuel surcharges wherever they’re imposed by partners. 

What credit card should you use to buy Etihad Guest miles?

Purchases of Etihad Guest miles are processed by Points.com in USD (they will not code as airline purchases). Here’s the best cards to maximize the miles earned:

Conclusion

Buying Etihad Guest miles at 1.25 US cents each would normally be a no-brainer for me, given their usefulness, but with the current Covid-19 pandemic you’ll have to decide whether you’re open to the risks.

As a reminder, Etihad is also selling travel vouchers with a 50% bonus, which may be a better option if you’re looking to fly with Etihad specifically (Etihad generally doesn’t offer great redemption value for its own flights through Etihad Guest).

Did a quick search on ANA’s website and it seems one way now cost 31,000 miles? Also taxes seem to be pretty high.
One person roundtrip (SG-Seoul), required mileage 62,000Miles, taxes/Fees/Charges/Airline Charges SGD365.60.

Correct me if I am wrong: That Oman Air flight SIN-KUL they list for 11,000 miles in F (6,000 in J) in the Oman chart doesn’t really exist (anymore), right?
