Etihad Guest Tier Segments are earned at a rate of one Tier Segment for each flight flown in the Coral Economy class, two Tier Segments in the Pearl Business class and three Tier Segments in Diamond First class.

See how Etihad Guest Tier Miles build up in just one trip depending on your Tier and the cabin you fly in.
