Guide to buying Etihad Guest miles for travel on Etihad and Virgin Australia
In my opinion, Etihad offers an above-average Economy Class experience

I can see flights to Europe starting at $1,137 return, which is very reasonable. Valuing Velocity Points at 1.8c each, the 7,800 bonus points earned on a return Economy fare are worth ~$140. That’s on top of the regular earn rate of 0.25-1 point per mile flown (depending on the fare class).
