Etihad Airways announced some new enhancements across their fleet and in all classes of services:


We’ve elevated First Class to new heights, drawing on
the best hotels and fine dining restaurants to create a luxurious
experience for the discerning traveler. An elegant reception service
welcomes you whilst you settle into your First Class Suite. Our new
throw blanket and cushion have been designed to create a sense of your
home away from home. Our fine dining menu includes new canapés, a
pre-dessert course and signature cognac service. Dine at your private
table dressed with an elegant range of fine bone chinaware from Nikko
Japan, with ‘Royal Oak’ cutlery from Studio William and crystal
glassware from Lucaris. For more details,

Whether you want to work, sleep or just unwind, our
Business Class experience has been designed to give you even greater
levels of comfort and choice. Guests travelling with us on our longer
flights will enjoy a turndown service featuring a mattress, loungewear
and slippers. When you’re ready, select from our Dine Anytime menu
inspired by upmarket bistros with a new ‘All Day’ menu introduced on
longer flights. This restaurant inspired experience continues with a
contemporary range of bone china, full-sized glassware and cutlery
inspired by the shapes and textures of our home, Abu Dhabi. For more details,

understand that when you travel, comfort is important to you. Which is
why in Economy Class, we have introduced new elements that will help
make your journey a more relaxing one. Step onboard and you’ll notice
we’ve refreshed our cabins with a new range of pillows and blankets.

On our longer flights, we’ve designed a unique pillow that converts
easily from a standard pillow to a neck pillow to help you sleep. We’ve
also introduced a blanket bag that doubles up as convenient tidy bag
to store your personal belongings on longer flights. Combined with our
new amenity kits and our enhanced food and beverage offering, we’re
re-thinking the small things that we know make a difference to the way
you fly.
