• Double miles posting within 10 days of travel automatically - pretty happy with the deal. Really hoping Etihad can come back from this with same success they have been experiencing up until the end of January 2020 - loads have been very high, menus vastly improved in lounge and inflight.

The buffet had 3 salads including a celar...
