A few months back I wrote about some of the rather confusing routing rules involved with using AAdvantage miles to book on Etihad. I had mentioned that for a time, American was not pricing awards to the Maldives correctly. They should have priced as one award to the Middle East. Instead, they were pricing as two awards (North America to Middle East, then Middle East to Indian Subcontinent).
Well, it’s be fixed. A reader (thanks XF) wrote that he got AA to price out a one-way award from North America to Maldives in F on Etihad at 90k miles, which is correct. (I know this won’t affect most of you, but I did leave this as an open question in the earlier post…)
