Etihad at the World Travel Market

"I wonder what's on television?" Sitting in Etihad's First Class Cabin

The World Travel Market is held every year in London and is THE opportunity to visit many travel and tourism bods…from Tourism Boards, Airlines, Hotel chains, you name it, it’s there!
I was lucky enough to attend in 2015 and represent not only my brand Life Beyond Borders, but also Travel Bloggers Greece.

One of my most memorable experiences was visiting the Etihad stand, the airline of Abu Dhabi, and seeing their First class cabins in their new A380.

First Class Cabin

Ahh, but not only does First class come with its own private cabins, on this aircraft there is now a Residence – a three roomed 125 sq foot penthouse in the sky (I’m not kidding).At £14,000 one way, you can imagine the facilities:

  • Living Room with Poltrona Frau leather double-seat sofa with ottoman and 32” flat screen TV – your personal favourite programmes already pre-loaded
  • En-suite Bathroom with shower, toilereries and bath robe
  • Bedroom with doube bed and Egyptian cotton sheets
  • Inflight chef
  • Personal Butler

Here, Danni Minogue shares with us her experience of The Residence:

There was the opportunity for visitors to the Etihad stand to experience First Class cabins, and The Residence (only chance I will ever get!)

See for yourself:

I was very honoured to be afforded the opportunity to see how the other half live. Let’s face it, it’ll be the only chance I get!  And the crew were lovely – even supporting my debut novel Girl Gone Greek
