Etihad First Class (Apartments) - Sydney to Abu Dhabi (EY 455) - Airbus A380-800

This video is a continuation of my trip report on a Virgin Australia B737-800 Business Class flight between Adelaide and Sydney. After arriving in Sydney, I have a long layover and decide to do a bit of flight simulation at Flight Experience.
I return to the airport in the evening for my flight (EY455) to Abu Dhabi. I have a look at the Etihad check-in counter in Terminal 1, before having my boarding pass reissued at the First Class counter. I then head over to the Sydney Etihad Lounge and enjoy a meal there before boarding my flight.
Once on board the A380, I review the First Class Apartment product. It's absolutely an amazing product that currently is the best First Class hard product in the sky. The size and the quality of the Apartment is simply stunning. I sample a number of items from the on-board menu, surf the net on the plane, and take a shower in-flight. The First Class bed and the on-board lounge facilities are looked at as well.
The video ends upon landing and arrival at the gate in Abu Dhabi. However, it is to be continued by a trip report of my Etihad A380 First Class experience from Abu Dhabi to London.

  • awesome experience, the only thing I think I wouldn't like is to have to call an attendant out to make the bed for me. The least instances I need somebody's assistance in my life, the better.

    Diego ReisDiego Reis10 أيام قبل
    • @Eddie Khoo I totally understand that Eddie and I'm sure they do an excellent job. I'm just saying that I see that as a downside, but it is obviously a very personal opinion. I just don't like having to depend on somebody to get it done.

      Diego ReisDiego Reis8 أيام قبل
    • Well it depends. Quite often in first class the bed needs to be specially deployed and the bedding/linen is kept out of reach of the passenger. The attendants normally insist on preparing it and they do a great job of it :)

  • Nice video - fabulous insight. I always think it ironic how (and this isn't a criticism) many of these first class videos of middle east carriers focus on the fact you're given a few dates. I'm not sure that would be in any way a memorable or mentionable aspect for me after spending thousands of dollars on a flight!

  • Wow, very impressive apartment. I just watched this video in July 2020 in the midst of covid-19. What will the future of air travel be, in general, and more specifically for the massive A380? Maybe they can rent out the first class apartments as hotel rooms. I think that would be fun - and a lot cheaper than a transcontinental flight.

    Michael WadeMichael Wadeأشهر قبل
    • I think immediately post-COVID, products like there will get much rarer due to the fall in demand and the increased risk that the airlines will be flying with empty first class cabins. It will probably be quite a long time before the industry recovers and we can see such luxurious travel cabins :(
