Was searching for award space from Abu Dhabi to London next year in April, Oct and Nov. every option was via Doha with Qatar.
Could this indicate the virgin/ etihad partnership is ending?

No. Because your flight is originating in AUH and not in Australia, you may need to call the Velocity call centre to book it. I can see Melbourne to London availability via Abu Dhabi on Etihad on November 5 next year, so the AUH-LHR flight is probably bookable with points; you'll just need to do it over the phone.
Yep, true, that could be it.
I just found it interesting because a few months back i traveled one way from AUH-LHR on a ticket i booked through the velocity site.
