I’m new to this so would appreciate any advice.
Myself and my partner are flying Perth to Dublin return in October, Economy class. This was booked through an intermediary website, with VA flight codes but operated by Etihad. This was before I began to get familiar with point hacking.
I have family pooling on both Etihad Guest and Velocity but am relatively new to both so I’m still at entry level with both.
I am thinking of using Velocity numbers on the upcoming trip as I probably don’t fly Etihad often enough (about once a year) to increase status, and the points do expire.
My goal using points is to occasionally upgrade to Business Class on flights to Europe.
Does anyone have any advice/experience with this?
