Etihad Airline Guide - First Class & More Blog (2022)

Etihad ist eine der jüngsten Airlines am Golf, gerade einmal 16 Jahre sind seit der Gründung durch Sheikh Khalifa im Jahr 2003 vergangen. Heute bedient Etihad Airways mit einer Flotte von über 114 Flugzeugen inklusive Neuheiten wie dem Airbus A380 und dem Boeing 787 Dreamliner ab ihrem Hub in Abu Dhabi knapp 80 Destinationen weltweit. Nach fehlgeschlagenen Investments in Air Berlin und Jet Airways besitzt Etihad Airways noch engeren Kooperationen mit Alitalia, Air Serbia, sowie Air Seychelles. Seit der Aufnahme von Langstreckenflügen im Jahre 2005 sind die Business und First Class Kabinen mit komplett flachen Betten ausgerüstet, mit Einführung des Airbus A380 im Jahr 2014 wurde sogar eine weltweit einzigartige neue Kabinenklasse eingeführt: die fliegende Zwei-Zimmer-Wohnung „The Residence“.

The Residence befindet sich im vorderen Teil des Oberdecks des A380 und besteht aus einem Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbett und großem Flatscreen, einem Wohnzimmer mit Doppelsofa und Fernseher sowie einem eigenen Bad mit Dusche. Die Räume sind durch ca. 1,90 m hohe Wände voneinander getrennt – komplett bis nach oben gezogene Wände sind aus Sicherheitsgründen nicht zulässig. Dennoch erreicht das Reiseerlebnis in der Residence das Niveau eines Privatjetfluges. Den Passagieren der Residence steht ein persönlicher Butler zur Verfügung, der feinste Speisen und Weine serviert. Buchbar ist die Residence zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt nur auf den Routen nach London, New York, Sydney und Paris. Die Kosten liegen bei etwa 20.000 USD pro Strecke.

Der perfekte Sitzplatz

Da es jeweils nur eine Residence mit zwei Sitzplätzen gibt, erübrigt sich die Frage nach dem besten Sitzplatz. Das Flugerlebnis ist in jedem Fall einzigartig!

Die Diamond First Class besteht aus einer First Class Suite mit verschließbaren Türen, wobei der Sitz mit Abstand zu den weichsten und gemütlichsten First Class Sitzen überhaupt gehört. Per Knopfdruck lässt er sich ganz einfach in ein Bett verwandeln. Das First Class Apartment im A380 gehört mit Sicherheit zu einer der größten First Class Suiten, die aktuell bei einer Linienfluggesellschaft verbaut sind. Das Apartment besteht aus einem komfortablen Sessel und einer zusätzlichem Sitzbank, die von der Crew bei Bedarf in ein vollständiges Bett umgebaut werden kann. Zudem können bei Bedarf zwei Apartments miteinander verbunden werden. Auch ein großzügiges Badezimmer mit Dusche steht den Passagieren der First Class Lounge zur Verfügung.

In den First Class Apartments im Airbus A380 gibt es Sitze in und entgegen der Flugrichtung. Zudem unterscheiden sich die Suiten darin, ob sie dem Fenster oder eher dem Gang zugewandt sind. In diesem Sinne sind 4A und 4K die besten Suiten, da beide sowohl in die Flugrichtung zeigen, als auch über eine breitere Fensterfront verfügen.

Etihad Business Class

Ein Flug in der Business Class von Etihad ist ein Erlebnis – insbesondere im A380 oder in der Boeing 787. Denn hier wurde mit den Business Class Studios eine verbesserte Business Class kreiert.

In der Business Class sind die Plätze in einer 1-2-1-Konfigurationangeordnet, wobei der Fenstersitz abwechselnd am Gang und eher am Fenster positioniert ist. Hier empfiehlt es sich, einen Sitzplatz auszuwählen, der nahe am Fenster positioniert ist, da diese Sitze gerade in der schlafenden Position deutlich mehr Privatsphäre gewährleisten. Desweiteren gibt es im Mittelblock in mehreren Reihen sogenannte Pärchensitze, bei denen die beiden Sitzplätze recht nah aneinander positioniert wurden. Diese Plätze sind für Paare perfekt, sollten allerdings als Einzelreisender gemieden werden.
