Etihad will bring on its new A380(arriving by the end of this year in sha Allah) an entire small Apartment including (living room, sleeping room and bathroom) onboard the First Class Cabin....definitely this will become the most luxury First Class in the industry but I guess it wont be cheap
The Residence by EtihadÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢
The Residence, which is certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for single or double occupancy, offers levels of luxury and total privacy normally found only on private jets.
Each Etihad Airways A380 will offer a boutique version of The Residence with different color palettes, table marquetry and custom carpets.
Guests in The Residence will have the services of a personal Butler throughout their flight. These fully trained service professionals will receive specialist training at the Savoy Butler Academy in London.
Guests in The Residence will also have a dedicated VIP Travel Concierge team who will ensure every detail of their travel experience, including ground transport, cuisine, and amenities, are tailored to their requirements.
Etihad Airways will redefine First Class and set a remarkable new industry standard with the launch of the First Apartment on the A380.
Nine First Apartments will be installed on the upper deck in a 1-1 configuration creating the only single aisle First Class cabin in the industry.
Each First Apartment, which has a 64 inch high sliding door, includes a reclining armchair and a full-length ottoman, both upholstered by Poltrona Frau. The ottoman transforms into a separate 80 inch long fully flatbed.
The First Apartment, which also includes unique features such as a chilled mini-bar, a personal vanity unit and a swiveling TV monitor for viewing from either the seat or the bed, has a 74 per cent larger footprint than the airlineÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s current award-winning First Class Suites.
A fully equipped shower room is available on the A380 for exclusive use by First Class guests.
Bathroom will also have showers like onboard the A380's of Emirates
Galley and Prayer Area(Which is actually the area next to the exit)
