I understand if I am successful in bidding for an upgrade I would earn frequent flyer points (velocity) based on my original fare with I believe a small 10% bonus. What I would like to know however, is what level of status credits I would earn? A normal economy ticket would be 40 however a business is 160. Is anyone at all able to clarify this?

Thanks for that mate.
One other question,
There are two pax on my booking and only I am wanting to upgrade. Is this possible?
As I go through the earlier steps of the bidding process it seems as if the entire booking will be upgraded which I do not want all.
Not sure, I have mostly done both Pax upgrade or none.

Just an FYI, the 10% bonus on upgraded Etihad flights is only for Etihad Guest members, not for Velocity members.
