LUXURY TRAVEL: ETIHAD

National airline of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad recently unveiled their new A380 and Boeing 787 aircrafts, the ultimate in luxury. Boasting the world’s first private multi-room cabin on a commercial aircraft, ‘The Residence’ is located on the forward upper deck of the new fleet of A380′s. Featuring a living room, furnished with a two-seat reclining sofa, a bedroom with a 2.08 metre-long double bed and private shower. The suites also include a dedicated butler, who is on call throughout the flight to cater to every need.

The A380 also features nine ‘First Apartments’ on the upper deck with the only single-aisle first-class cabin in the airline industry. A fully equipped shower room is on offer for exclusive use by first-class guests.

Raising the bar again, on both the A380 and the B787 will be new ‘Business Studios’ which are given 20 percent more space than Etihad’s current business class seats. Guests of business class and first class can also receive access to ‘The Lobby’, a serviced lounge and bar between the two cabins. Featuring a large screen TV and leather sofa, guests are invited to relax and mingle mid-flight.
