    Asiana Club recently announced that you can now earn and redeem miles on Etihad Airways (EY) flights. Earning rates are 150% for First, 125% for Business and 100% for Economy fares (excluding N,S). Redemptions are as per the Star Alliance redemption table.

    Remember, miles earned on non-Star Alliance partner airlines do not count towards status. The only other partner airline at present is Qatar Airways (QR). More information here.

    Interesting. EY announced a start for codesharing on DJ & NZ recently.

    Perhaps they are thinking of joining star alliance?

    That would also be interesting to have EY make a move toward Star Alliance; they are also partnered with NH, BD, SN, and TK. QR is only partnered with *A carriers and in 09 Al Baker (their CEO) mentioned joining *A alliance. In 2000 EK considered joining *A at that time as well.

    I'd be thrilled with a *A member (or 2 or 3) in the Mid-East. Since Skyteam/Global Reject Alliance is having 2 join: MEA and Saudi Arabian and Gulf Air is positioned to join OW as they are included in the OW RTW fare.
