Reviews The amazing thing about this new first class, other than the fact that it comes only three years after the last first class was introduced, is how it had improved on an already outstanding product. Business Traveller, UK The seat is as excellent as ever. What has improved from previous experiences is the confidence of the staff, and their professionalism. Firmly recommended.
Business Traveller
Delightful. The menu is varied and served on-demand. The design of the self-contained chairs makes it feel like you are the only person on the flight.
Business Traveller Africa
From door to door, Etihad Airways offers an impressively strong business class experience which certainly lives up to the hype.
