Over the past year, there has been much talk about Etihad's The Residence - the first three-room suite in the sky. Recently its first passenger that flew in it has confirmed the stellar service that was promised. But what about the First Apartment on the A380s or the First Suite on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner?
The First Apartment is upholstered with luxurious Poltrona Frau leather armchair and ottoman which opens out into an 81” long flat bed.
When you fly First Class with Etihad, you are entitled to enjoy the complimentary door-to-door limousine transfers. (click here to find out more info)
