Topbonus is changing the award chart.

It is also now possible to pay the taxes with miles on international flights not only European flights.

Absolutely brutal to be honest. What I don't get is why AB is even focusing on this. They are in a terrible financial situation at the moment, and the least of their worries should be the FF program. Mind numbing.

Easy way to reduce liabilities? Do they even own TopBonus?

Surprisingly the majority of the TopBonus Ltd. is owned by Etihad.

Even with those devaluations, topbonus is still a bloody easy program with some great loopholes. No reason to worry here.
