Choose Well with Etihad

15th March 2019

No Matter how or where you’re flying, each of Etihad Airways’ cabin classes offer options to enhance your journey.

First Class

Welcome to your own universe in the sky. With a dedicated team and your own private space, you’ll feel like the only guest on board.

How would you like your steak to be cooked? Select your favourite dish from Eithad’s à la carte menu and their Inflight Chef will prepare it to your liking. With options inspired by destinations, vegetarian platters and fresh fruit, you can dine whenever you’re ready.  Stay connected with Wi-Fi and mobile services on board or completely switch off with noise-cancelling headsets and on demand entertainment, including the latest films, box-sets and seven live TV channels.  When it’s time for bed, slip into our luxury sleepwear whilst the cabin crew prepare your bed with a mattress, duvet and full-size pillow.

Step into your own, private apartment with plenty of space to move around. Each apartment has a wide, leather armchair, separate 6-foot 10-inch bed and full-length wardrobe.  Freshen up with a full-height shower and snuggle up in our luxury sleepwear before you catch up on the latest films or TV from the comfort of your armchair or your bed.

Close the doors to your own private suite on board.  Hang up your jacket and make yourself at home with a drink and a comfy leather chair. You’ll find a personal wardrobe and your own chilled refreshments all within easy reach of your seat.  When it’s time to rest, your seat folds down into a fully-flat bed so you can sleep deeply. The crew will make sure you have everything you need with a turndown service of mattress, duvet and soft, full-size pillow.

Business Class

Flying Business with Etihad is not business as usual. Relax in privacy, dine when you’re ready and arrive at your destination feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Choose to switch on with mobile services and Wi-Fi on board, or switch off with noise-cancelling headsets and hundreds of hours of films, TV and box-sets, including seven live news and sports channels. With Dine Anytime menus, you can choose to dine whenever you’d like during your flight, whether you’d prefer something light or a three-course meal from the à la carte menu. On longer flights, Etihad’s Food & Beverage Manager will guide you through the menu options and recommend the perfect beverage to match, from a refreshing juice to a glass of bubbly.

Recline your seat to a fully-flat bed at the touch of a button and arrive at your next destination feeling refreshed. Relax with the built-in seat massage and let your senses transport you to Italy thanks to their luxury amenity kits by ACQUA DI PARMA.  There’s also plenty of room to stretch out and ample storage areas for your luggage.

Immerse yourself in the latest TV, movies and music with on-demand entertainment or catch up on your emails with onboard Wi-Fi. When it’s time to rest, recline to a fully-flat bed or sit back and get comfortable with adjustable lighting, headrest, back support and footrest.


Economy means more comfort, hundreds of hours of inflight entertainment and even more choice with plenty of buy on board options.

Enjoy the latest on-demand films, TV and box-sets, as well as seven live sports and news channels on selected flights.  Stay connected with Wi-Fi and mobile services on board, as well as USB and power ports at every seat.  When it’s time to eat, choose from one of our destination-inspired main courses, always including a vegetarian option. Or why not treat yourself to a glass of Champagne, popcorn with your film or luxury sleepwear, all available to buy on board.  If you’re flying with children, Etihad’s Flying Nannies are available on long-haul flights to help with the little ones.

Etihad has created even more options so that you can choose how you travel.  Have you got a favourite seat on the plane? With Economy Standard, you can select exactly where you sit on board. If you’d prefer a speedier boarding, you can pay to reserve a seat closer to the front of the plane, or if you’d prefer a seat with a view, you can book that too.  For extra legroom, stretch out in Economy Space or bid to keep up to three neighbouring seats free for the duration of your flight with Economy Neighbour-Free.

It’s not just the generous recline, adjustable headrests or cosy pillows and blankets that make our Economy seats so good. You’ll also enjoy entertainment at your fingertips with wide touch-screen TVs showing the latest films, box-sets, music and games, as well as seven live TV sports and news channels.  Enjoy hundreds of hours of inflight entertainment whilst you sit back and relax with generous recline and adjustable back support and headrests.
