Flying is not everyone’s cup of tea, to put it mildly — but many of us do love to tick that bucket-list of places off our list. Tough choice, we know. We usually pay the bulk of the attention to comfort above or else, especially if you’re a first-class flier. But when you’re on board Etihad Airways First Class Suite, residing in the quarters of luxury isn’t a speciality, it’s a regularity.
We embarked on the Etihad 787 and were pleasantly presented with a canapé and an exclusive Acqua di Parma amenity kit — reprising of scented hand and body lotions to fight the cabin dryness — and ample storage for our belongings that we appreciatively lapped up amidst our bulky carryons.
Designed to claim the spotlight on comfort, here’s our experience with Etihad Airways!

This was no mere flight of fancy; then again, it’s easy to see why — impeccable service, gourmet dining and luxurious sleeping quarters make Etihad Airways a contender for the dreamiest flying package.
FIRST CLASS SUITE
Indulge in the luxe life with the First Class Suite that is outfitted in the finest leather — we’re talking seats that convert to a 6-foot 8-inch fully flat bed for your convenience. Other notable features? A personal wardrobe cabinet, 24-inch flat-screen TV and a turn-down service complete with sleepwear and a nighttime beverage.
The cabins were equipped with a dining table for two and a surprisingly roomy space — there’s nothing worse than a cramped up legroom, especially for the restless travellers among us — and you can invite your travelling companion to join you for a meal.
The best part? Sliding privacy doors. We’re calling it, it’s an introvert’s dream come true. Nothing beats some much-needed solitude; made better with their in-flight entertainment and other long-haul beauty must-haves from their amenity kit.
Apart from the trustyfavourites, the menu will showcase international cuisines. Their inflight chefs pride on churning out their fresh offerings — be it the seafood, steak or pasta from their pantry.
