Etihad Airways First Class

Etihad Airways First Class Diamond Suite

Known simply as “The Residence”, Etihad Airways’ luxury offering is the closest thing in mass commercial air travel to the service found on a private jet. Instead of an airline seat, The Residence is more like an apartment in the sky, with a bedroom, private shower, and living area.

Flyers traveling in the 125-square-foot Residence are treated to a 32-inch flatscreen TV as well as the full attention of a private butler.
