Etihad

I have to fly to Europe (from Bangkok) next month and I hate long haul flights. Last time was in 2001.

 

I like to go business class but I can't get a seat on the flight time i want.

 

My agent has got me economy in Etihad Airways but tells me they have good economy class and its much better then other airline.

 

Anyone ever flown long haul in Etihad can tell me if it was ok ?

 

 

Thanks.

Would not recommend Emirates as their seatng is 10 across in the 777s, most airlines it is 9 across.

 

Never flown with Etihad, but my brother has many times and highly recommends them.

I always use them now as very impressed, the last few flights have been painfully quiet so full rows of seats to yourself ideal for shut eye. I think there was a choice of 50 different movies to watch and loads of other gadgety stuff in the entertainment console. Also had to have to helpings of lamb balti last time as the food was to good

I flew with Ethihad in September last year, don't remember the flight too well cos I was drunk and slept for the whole of the first plane journey to Abu Dhabi. The food was ok from memory and the entertainment was pretty good, all in all not a bad airline for the price.

Flown economy with Etihad a few times, never had problem, good leg room, personal TV gives great choice, only reason I dont always fly with them, is price sometimes goes up to much at certain times of the year.

Flew with Etihad on my first trip. They are good. Thai Airways has been my favourite so far.

Etihad:

 

The Bad:

First leg of the flight from UK the back of seat entertainment did't work all I coud do was listen to a reading of the Koran for about 8 hours (In Arabic), they did move me to another seat, but that was broken as well (I hoped they might up-grade me if I complained long enough, but no joy).

 

They were really crap with the drinks, the staff simply ignored all the call button requests (But it was quite funny watching everybodys lights being canceled only for passengers to "Ping" them again repeatedly).

 

They ran out of Red Wine on the first meal service.

 

The Good:

Decent leg room

The two flights back on my trip the entertainment worked ok.

I liked being able to stretch your leg in Abu Dhabi for an hour on th way out.

 

The fight out was at Christmas from Manchester was full & the staff were looking for volunteers to fly out on the next day, for this they were offering a free meal & hotel room in an airport hotel along with a payment of £200 if I remember correctly.

I might have taken them up on the offer, if I didn't have a connecting flight to Siem Reap.

 

Overall I thought the flight was pretty good, just don't plan on getting pissed on board & bring an mp3 player with you just in case your entertainment dosen't work & make sure you join Etihad's loyalty programme, it's free & your points don't run out after a time like some do).

Can't wait till my next trip at Christmas (flying with Etihad again).

flown twice with them with a short (couple of hours) stop-off in abu dhai. Very comfy seats, excellent in flight entertainment , good service and meals. Both times i went it was economy. Now my airline of choice :Number1a:

Calm down dear...this is only the internet :)

I flew twice with them before they de-camped from Gatwick to Heathrow. No complaints from me on food or service. Quick changes at Abu Dhabi (both ways). Return flights were always empty (no doubt the reason they've moved to Heathrow) so you could rack out and catch some zzzzzzz's.

When my private jet was in for an oil change in June I flew with them , economy class !

For the price it was good value (25000Bt return to Manchester ) but they were a bit stingy with the drinks as Steve Zodiac said !

 

The food out was poor compared to Emirates, for example , but much better on the way back. Apart from that , there was not a lot of a difference between them apart from Abeu Dabby airport being more user friendly ( More seats and loo's )!

 

I was not impressed with Qatar , when I tried them !

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
