Etihad A380: The only three-room suite in the sky



Abu Dhabi’s national carrier, Etihad, showcased on Thursday the arrival of its first Airbus A380, outfitted with “the only three-room suite in the sky.”

The A380 is the first of a fleet of 10 on order from Etihad Airways, which is to take delivery of four more of the double-decker jets next year.

The A380 will operate daily to London Heathrow starting Dec. 27 and features “The Residence by Etihad” — a three-room suite, complete with a living room, a private bathroom with shower and a bedroom, as well as a dedicated butler at the very front of the plane’s upper deck. The 11.6 square meter (125 square foot) cabin is for single or double occupancy.

The airliner says the suite has already been booked for its inaugural flight to London. The company’s executives previously said that the suite was expected to be priced at $21,000 — one way. More info and photos
