Headforpoints have flagged that you can buy travel vouchers with a 50% uplift for any EY flights over the phone until 24 June valid into 2022. If you have the spare dollars, sounds like a good discount

I got an email from Etihad about this overnight.

Seems like a good ploy to raise some cash at a time when they really need it. I guess the main risks are that (1) Etihad goes out of business, or (2) you're unable to travel and use the voucher in the next 2 years.

I personally have enough money already tied up in airline credits (that I didn't necessarily want) & have plenty of expiring miles to use when travel resumes, so I won't be taking Etihad up on their offer at this point.

It's a pretty decent offer, but considering the uncertain nature of Velocity status & number of points I have in AA, QF and VFF I will also give this one a miss.

This is a great offer and possibly many airlines will follow suit, can only hope!

Given Etihad fares are about 50% over the cost of decent competitors I normally use, this was a consideration. But then with the question of whether they will continue to run A380s, whether onboard service will continue to fall, and possible route changes/impacts, it doesn't weigh up against those risks given the hard 2 year expiry. So I'm passing on this.

It’s a pretty decent offer but like others have mentioned I’m nervous about route changes, etc plus of course Etihad’s financial position has been well documented. However I don’t see the government of Abu Dhabi allowing Etihad to go under given how reliant they are and will be on the airline for feeding through AUH and for tourism. I was never a huge fan of AUH as it was always overcrowded but will obviously be a lot quieter now...speaking of which has anybody heard anything about the new midfield terminal opening?

Looking at fares ex SYD/MEL to Europe, EY is quoting $8000+ in business class through the end of the year, compared to $5500 for QR, SQ, CX and the like.

So even at a 50% bonus, the offer sucks.

Of course the fares should come down. But certainly not attractive to tie up your cash right now on.
