Etihad is on a roll with the New York service. The airline has been offering their new A380 service with the Residence and the Apartments to their New York based guests since November 2015. I was able to catch one of their early flights out of New York to Abu Dhabi on the Apartment in January 2016 as I drew a close to my #redcarpettrip.
Anyhow, Etihad has just announced that they are upgrading their second service out of New York to an A380 service as well, with effect from June 1, 2017. With this, the daily flight schedule between the two cities will look like this:
In fact, this is awesome news, and the new flight is already loaded in the systems of Etihad for booking:
And yes, award redemption seats are not available at Saver level at the moment, but typically Etihad releases them erratically anyways!
I’m excited about this new Etihad upgrade to the A380.
What do you guys think about this move?
