I have booked First Class to Dubai on Emirates in November using Qantas points, but haven’t sorted a way home. I thought it might be nice to go by road to Abu Dhabi, stay a night or two and fly home to Melbourne on 18 or 19 November. To do this I would need to convert Velocity points to Etihad ones. I have about 152k Velocity and have never redeemed any before.
How do I go about checking availability in a premium cabin on Etihad on those dates and transferring the points? I have absolutely no idea and find the Virgin site an utter nightmare. Arrrghhh.
