I flew Etihad a couple years ago for a meeting in the UAE. At the time (as is the same now) they were not part of the Star Alliance or partners with a hotel chain I used (Marriot or Starwood) so I signed up for Etihad guest and got around 15k miles.
I'm looking for a creative way to get these miles over to either Continental, Starwood or Marriott.
Has anyone tried this by transferring to and intermediary first like Etihad -> ANA -> Continental or Etihad -> Hilton -> Continental
