I have flown with Etihad a number of times and have reviewed their long haul flights in First and Business Class. My trip reports can be found below.
I rate the Middle Eastern Carriers; Qatar, Etihad and Emirates as the top airlines for First Class and have compared Emirates vs Etihad vs Qatar Airways to rank which is the best Airline in the Middle East. They all also feature in my top 10 best business class airlines in the world.
One Etihad feature I used to love was the free chauffeur service for travellers in First and Business. This is now reserved only for those travelling in the Etihad A380 Residence.
If the layover is important to you, I am also a fan of Etihad’s First Class Lounge & Spa in Abu Dhabi. Even if you are travelling in Economy or Business Class, you can pay to use this outstanding lounge.
