According to the Flybuys website the partnership between Flybuys and Etihad Guest has been suspended "until further notice". Members can't currently link accounts or earn or redeem Flybuys points (though already-linked members can still earn Tier Miles).

Does anyone have any further or inside information on this?

According to they claim that flybuys pulled the pin on this deal.

It could be true and just like the original Qantas/Woolworths deal it could come down to the airline wanting more $ from the supermarket per point they hand out.

Personally, I'm not surprised it ended as it didn't make a lot of sense that an Australian supermarket handed out points on a Middle Eastern Airline when the newer Virgin Australia deal seems to be doing a lot better (for both Coles and Virgin).
