Etihad's New 'Residence' First Class Will Make You Insanely Jealous


Recommended Posts

For those who like to get excited about these things ;) will cost appprox $20k per ticket...nothing about if will stop in bangkok






The new products are the result of a project that began in 2008, when Etihad came to the realization that their customers' needs varied depending on the route and aircraft they were flying. So the airline has since opted for a different experience on each fleet type, rather than a cut-and-paste format like some airlines use. $20,000 is what you'll have to fork over to fly in The Residence from Abu Dhabi to London. Hogan predicts that large families and dignitaries will book the Residence.



Etihad has ten A380s on order, with the first expected to arrive this December. It will be flown from Adu Dhabi to Sydney and Melbourne, via London. Each A380 will have only one Residence on board. The Residence seating features the same leather as a Ferrari and also includes its own butler.


Etihad is calling the rest of their First Class seats "Apartments" and they're spacious in their own right.

I very much doubt they will be on the Bangkok route as that route doesn't even have first class at moment let alone need this residence,the demand just inst there for premium travellers on that route,not that i could afford it anyway

Sounds like a nice treat for a once in a lifetime flight experience. I flew the Concorde once for the same reason.

I was blown away when I read about this!  


Looks like it will be on the London-Abu Dhabi route, and I'm sure a connection could be made from Abu Dhabi to BKK.


I read that a one way ticket from London to Abu Dhabi will set you back a mere $20,000 USD, or about 650,000 baht.....that's a LOT of STs!  55555555

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
