Etihad Airways to Introduce A380 on New York Route

Etihad Airways has announced its plans to deploy the iconic A380 double-decker aircraft on flights to New York JFK, starting from April 22. This decision marks a significant enhancement to Etihad’s capacity in the crucial US market, facilitating connectivity to the broader GCC and Indian subcontinent.

The A380 boasts the renowned Residence three-bedroom suite, featuring a private mid-air living room, bedroom, and en-suite shower room. To celebrate the introduction of the A380 on the New York route, Etihad is offering discounted upgrade prices for a limited time.

This move follows the successful return of Etihad’s A380 to the skies, with London being the first destination to enjoy the A380 experience. The A380 will operate one of the two daily flights to New York, while the other daily flight will be served by a 787-9 featuring First, Business, and Economy cabins.

Every guest on Etihad’s A380 is treated to a unique and elevated experience. The Economy cabin features a dedicated welcome area, 68 extra legroom seats, and 337 Economy Smart seats with Etihad’s signature fixed-wing headrests and large pillows.

The upper deck offers Business Studios with 70 private spaces and The Lobby, a serviced lounge and bar area between the First and Business cabins. The collaboration with Armani/Casa brings sophistication to the Business experience with premium ceramics, glassware, cutlery, and fabrics.

For First-Class passengers, nine apartments provide an exclusive haven with designer tableware, a spacious leather lounge chair, and a separate ottoman that transforms into an 80° lie-flat bed. First-Class guests also have access to personal vanity units and an exclusive shower room.

The pinnacle of luxury is The Residence, the world’s only three-room suite in the sky, accommodating up to two guests with a private living room, bedroom, and ensuite bathroom complete with a shower at 40,000 feet.

Etihad is offering a limited-time promotion for first-class ticket holders, providing the opportunity to upgrade to The Residence for AED 10,999 ($2,990). This offer is available for purchase until December 12, offering an exclusive and unparalleled flying experience for those traveling between Abu Dhabi and New York.
