This seems like a sweet deal. Several months ago, I transferred Citi Thank You points to Eithad for an AA reservation when you could get a 25% bonus. Etihad’s award chart for AA was similar to AA’s own chart, so it resulted in a 25% savings. At the time, I read some horror stories about dealing with Etihad’s agents, but my bookings went smoothly (obviously, you need to know what you want before you call).

I’m guessing this transfer from MR isn’t immediate? The Citi transfer took more than a week as I recall.

Is there any recent analysis of the best deals from the Etihad chart?

Any sweetspots you recommend from India that would make this a better deal than using AA miles?
