The Air Berlin saga has carried on for the whole summer, with the fate of the airline confirmed only recently. One major issue for Topbonus members has always been what will happen with their miles, especially after the program filed for insolvency in late August. Luckily there is a way out via Etihad; otherwise, millions of miles could be lost by Topbonus members.
