J or Y?

So Brussels does have nonestop NYC to bru.
And this is still true ?  Etihad miles on Brussels air  metal ?

Etihad, 21,972 in Y RT & 36,620 in J RT + $95 in taxes for travel on SN.

Its an amazing redemption, maybe the best value in the industry

Use UA/AC/NH to search SN availability and then call EY to book.

Apparently it's hard to find an EY agent who can book partners. Try to HUCA a few times and report back.

Interlining has nothing to do with how it's ticketed.
That's certainly not true in certain cases. For example UA-HA.
