Etihad’s latest luxury suite The Residence on-board the world’s largest passenger aircraft Airbus A380 is quite a treat.
The Residence features a living room, a separate bedroom and ensuite bathroom, and it’s the new ultra-luxury class of air travel, the most exclusive commercial-flight experience available on the market.
Available for either single or double occupancy, the experience is yours only at about $21,000 – one way. It’s quite fully booked, though.
Their VIP Travel Concierge Service takes care of guests booked into The Residence from the moment of the reservation right through until the end of their stay.
They have a private check-in and lounge, and a luxury chauffeur to take you to the plane seamlessly and discreetly.
On-board, “The Etihad Butler” (a Savoy Academy-trained butler, to be exact) ensures all the arrangements are in place and plans both the inflight and après-flight itinerary according to your personal preferences.
Naturally, an in-flight Chef can prepare meals from a range of gourmet menu options or even create your favorite dish.
The living room has a luxurious Poltrona Frau leather double-seat sofa with ottoman, two dining tables, chilled drinks cabinet and 32-inch flat screen TV.
The bedroom is decorated with delicate fabrics and furnished with natural fibre mattress double bed, Egyptian cotton sheets and choice of pillows. Naturally the breakfast is served in bed.
The ensuite bathroom is right across the soft-carpeted hallway, with shower, exclusive toiletries and bathrobes.
