Video: Inaugural Etihad A350 flight Abu Dhabi to Paris! Just how nice is this airplane?

In this video we fly on the Etihad A350-1000 for its first ever commercial service, a special inaugural flight from Abu Dhabi (AUH) to Paris (CDG). We’re right up front in business class, seat 5K, and we get to test out everything from the brand new seat with a closing door to the service and food.

We also head back to check out the very nice economy class. Along the way we chat to Terry Daly, Vice President Guest Experience, Brand and Marketing at Etihad. And making a special appearance to give us his thoughts on the new product is Jonny Clark, Founder of TheDesignAir. Make sure to go follow him on all his channels too!

In this video we take a ride on Etihad’s lovely 787-10 from Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi on EY78. Along the way we can’t figure out how to get our connecting boarding pass at Schiphol Airport; we have a chat with the Captain before departure; we get some beautiful views of Holland on the climb out; we test out the Etihad Business Studio seat, service, food and entertainment options; and we enjoy a scenic sunset descent over Iran and the Gulf.

Video: How does SAS transatlantic business class stack up these days

In this video we take a 9+ hour flight onboard Scandinavian Airlines A330 business class from Stockholm (ARN) to Newark (EWR). SAS cut a lot of onboard service and all its long-haul out of Stockholm during the pandemic so it’s nice to see both things coming back, little by little.
