Firstly, thanks to the superb advice on this site (and a few others) I booked the F apartments from MEL-AUH on the Etihad A380 for 60,000 AA points each. Absolutely excellent value at a quarter of the retail price.
Now, I want to get to Europe from there and I figured I’d spend a couple of days in Dubai first (does anyone know if the EY complimentary chauffer service allow transfer from Abu Dhabi to Dubai?) and then fly out of DXB. Does anyone have any creative suggestions using frequent flyer points? I’m flexible on airlines dates.
So far I’ve looked at:
- Emirates - using QF points - 50,000 for J and 75,000 for F.
- BA - using AA points - 40,000
As always, I look forward to your comments.
