THE ETIHAD AIRWAYS EXPERIENCE

Inspiring Travel Company | 26 Sep, 2016

Our very own Aviation Specialist Jessica England describes her five-star experience of Etihad Airways…

“I was offered the opportunity to visit Etihad at Manchester Airport with some of my colleagues recently and jumped at the chance!

We drove to Manchester and parked easily in the long-stay car park, before going to check-in – which all took just 5 minutes.

The Etihad ticket desk was located very close to the check-in area which was super handy; particularly if you’re travelling with young children. From there we made our way through fast-track security, which was seamless, and to the Etihad Business Class Lounge. The lounge itself is very light and spacious and has a dedicated area for families with toys for younger children to keep them entertained. If you fancy a shower there are washroom facilities available and Etihad will even provide the towels and all the toiletries you need. The food in the lounge was delicious, with a choice of meze or a 3-course meal. We opted for the latter and enjoyed soup to start, fish for main and a scrumptious, light posset for dessert. There was a lot of choice on the menu though, with something to suite every palate or dietary requirement.

From here we went to the aircraft, an Etihad Boeing 777 which offers a 2-cabin service; Economy and Business Class.
The Business Class cabin is a 1-2-1 configuration of lie-flat beds which are very comfortable. There is plenty of storage space and the personal televisions are very large at 15.4 inches. Everyone travelling in Business Class receives a Limited Edition amenity kit containing Scarmouche + Fandango unisex products. If travelling with younger children the Flying Nannies are on hand to offer assistance and lots of fun to keep them entertained.

We also had an opportunity to view the Economy cabin. The seats are in a 3-4-3 configuration and have the same entertainment system as the Business Class cabin but with slightly smaller screens. The seats are very comfortable and roomy for Economy.

All in all my experience of Etihad was very positive; I would definitely recommend travelling with the airline as the product is lovely and the staff were all exceptionally helpful.”
