    Etihad announces loyalty scheme revamp:)

    Etihad Airways has made significant changes to its Etihad Guest loyalty scheme, the majority of which will come into effect on October 9.

    The revamp - which has been communicated to members via an email from the carrier's vice president customer relationship management and loyalty, Dr Barry Green - includes changes to the number of miles needed for award ticket redemptions on certain routes.

    UK-based travellers will be pleased to hear that redemptions on flights between London and Abu Dhabi will be reduced from 120,000 miles to 110,452 for a Diamond First Class ticket, but some routes will see a significant increase in miles needed.

    For instance a Coral Economy Class redemption between Abu Dhabi and Johannesburg will increase from 45,000 miles to 71,144, and a Diamond First Class redemption between Abu Dhabi and Sydney will rise from 195,000 miles to 242,741.

    It's strange that their redemption costs won't be round numbers. I wonder how they did the calculations.
