Has anyone out there have any experience of adding multiple frequent flyer numbers to one booking?
Here’s the scenario:
Flying to Europe next school holidays. We are Velocity members due to family pooling and flying Etihad Airways (EY) . The return sector is Catania-Rome-Abu Dhabi-Melbourne (CTA-FCO-AUH-MEL). All booked on Etihad Airways with Etihad Airways flight numbers.
But … The first sector Catania-Rome (domestic in Italy) is operated by Alitalia (AZ) for which we don’t currently earn miles nor status credits on Virgin Australia (VA). So, I was thinking about putting them on our Etihad Airways Guest membership. Reluctant to call Etihad as they might get a bit miffed that we’re not using Guest Membership for the whole trip.
Any experience, thoughts or suggestions much appreciated.
