With the new changes on June 1st 2012 Etihad in eight months has largely doubled the points required for the majority of travel, and halved the number of points being earned, a double whammy for most of the airline's 1.5 million frequent flyers. As of October 2011 Etihad also accelerated the expiry date for miles earned. Etihad from October 9 reduced its expiry date for miles earned by all non-tier members (the bulk of its members) from 3 years to 2.
