Etihad improves the perks it offers to its Gold Elite members. The airline announced that has decided to offer its top-tier members some additional benefits. Under this enhancement program Gold Elite members choose any other Etihad guest for Etihad Guest Gold 'companion membership'.
Elite passengers regardless of the class they are flying, will now be able to gain access for them along with their companion traveling on the same flight to Diamond First Class Lounge operated by Etihad, at all its network airports. Under the new policy Gold Elite members will now get 25% more tier bonus miles, i.e. they will not get 75% of tier bonus miles.
They will also get guaranteed business class tickets for any destination and date on all Etihad operated flights, provided they book the same at least 48 hours prior the departure time. This benefit is also extended to the fellow companion flying under guest privileges on the same flight as the Gold Elite member.
