Etihad Airways: Free WiFi for First Class Guests

Enhancements, enhancements! Etihad Airways announced today that First Class guests will now have access to free WiFi inflight. This is obviously a positive enhancement to Etihad’s First Class service as the airline has been cost-cutting like crazy recently. I have just flown Etihad A380 First Class from Abu Dhabi to Sydney a few weeks ago, and I didn’t notice that much cost-cutting as the food was… Read More

Flying The Etihad Residence This Year!

The best way to fly, besides flying private (and Lufthansa First Class), is The Etihad Residence on the Airbus A380. The Residence is a three-room suite in the sky – featuring a living room, a bathroom with a shower, and a bedroom. Two people can fly in the Residence – however, there isn’t really a good way to redeem miles for the experience.. which only leaves… Read More

Etihad Cuts to Business Class are also Shameful

Etihad Airways First and Business Class used to be one of my favourite ways to fly to/from the Middle East. Personally, I think that Emirates is way overrated and their First Class is not as great as Etihad’s A380 Apartment, furthermore, Emirates’ Business Class is beyond terrible with an awful configuration. Etihad’s premium cabins were incredible in 2015 and 2016… and then they started to… Read More

Etihad Cuts to First Class are Shameful

My second favourite way to fly (after Lufthansa First Class, of course), has long been Etihad’s A380 First Class Apartment. I’ve flown the product over a dozen times by now and I was always left with a positive and “reimagined” experience… well it looks like Etihad Airways has really sunk with their cost-cutting. Where do I begin? The Etihad Airways First Class Lounge in Abu… Read More

U.S. AAdvantage Agents See More Etihad First/Business Award Space!

Etihad First/Business Class is incredible. The airline features an amazing First Class Apartment on their Airbus A380 aircraft, which they fly to New York, London, Paris, Sydney, and Melbourne. I’ve flown Etihad First Class around five times already on all of their A380 routes and all I can say is that I’m always left in awe. The product is truly stunning and nothing like it… Read More

Asiana Doesn’t Impose Fuel Surcharges on Etihad Redemptions

Asiana Airlines Asiana Club is a very unique frequent flyer programme. Not only can you redeem Asiana miles for incredible flights (such as Lufthansa First Class for just 40k Starpoints from America to Europe), but they also partner with Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways.. both of which, in my opinion, are amazing airlines. A while back I wrote how it is possible to redeem 35k… Read More

Book Etihad A380 First Class For 35k Starpoints!

The Etihad A380 First Class Apartment is arguably the world’s best First Class. End of story. I mean when you have a separate seat and a bed.. inside of an apartment on an airplane, mixed with delicious food, amazing service, and a SHOWER… luxury travel doesn’t get much better. I was lucky to have flown Etihad’s A380 First Class Apartment from Sydney to Abu Dhabi… Read More

Preview & Photos: Etihad First Class A380 Apartment

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to fly the Etihad First Class A380 Apartment, twice. The first flight was from Sydney to Abu Dhabi and then later, from Abu Dhabi to London-Heathrow. Both flights were marvellous and amazing. The crew, service, food, etc. was all perfect and I couldn’t be happier with Etihad. Having flown many First Class products in the sky throughout the… Read More

Etihad’s Boarding Music – So Relaxing!

My daily music playlist consists primarily of music produced for airlines, I just find it amazing, especially boarding music. So while I have almost an entire playlist dedicated to airline boarding music, I also have one for non-boarding music (as in brand music, for example). My favourite will always be Lufthansa’s Symphony of Angels. Lufthansa has a special place in my heart and I will always remain… Read More

Flying the Etihad First Class Apartment – Flying Reimagined

Wow! Wow! Wow!!!!! A few days ago, I was able to fly the Etihad First Class Apartment. Twice. Needless to say, I think these two flights were the best in my life. The first flight was from Sydney to Abu Dhabi and the second, from Abu Dhabi to London-Heathrow. I’m still in shock at how gorgeous the First Class cabin is and how downright incredible the service was… Read More
