    Etihad had made a great move allowing their new Apartment class cabins to be bookable with partner miles. Not only did they open it up for partner bookings but the availability on the route (only flying London <-> Abu Dhabi right now) is excellent! Singapore airlines took several years before they opened up their suites aboard their A380 available at the saver level, so it is great to not have to wait that long to book the new Etihad cabins. However, an award that is not possible for partner bookings (because partners book into the Guest availability) is the incredible Residence class. That is the multi-room “seat” that comes complete with a butler and costs $20,000 for a one way trip. At least two people get to fly for that price! But, there is a lot of availability in the Residence class for award bookings! Since there is only one available (though it says 2), if there is award availability, that means no one has even booked that high-end seat...
