As of early May 2023, Etihad Airways, the airline of the United Arab Emirates, presented what its new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft will look like inside, which will be incorporated into its fleet in the third quarter of this year, adding to the almost 40 Dreamliner units already in operation.
“The cabin interior of Etihad’s new 787 Dreamliner features further enhancements to our award-winning and industry-recognized cabins. Our new Business Class takes the passenger experience to new heights with the second evolution of the Business Studio that was launched on the Airbus A350-1000 last year.”
The Business cabin features the exclusive and elegant Etihad interior, with a customized version of the Elements seat.
The new seats will provide travelers with a comfortable and spacious environment with greater privacy thanks to the suite door. The height of the suite has been further increased over the debut A350 model, offering even greater privacy for guests.
Each of the 32 Business seats have direct aisle access with the cabin designed in a 1-2-1 configuration offering comfort, convenience and privacy whether traveling alone or with a companion. The seats recline into a completely flat bed that is almost 2 meters long and features a 17.3″ 4K TV screen, Bluetooth connectivity with Bluetooth, multiple charging ports and wireless charging, as well as plenty of storage space.
In Economy, Etihad’s new 787 Dreamliners will feature 271 seats that are lighter than the current fleet and therefore more fuel efficient. The seats boast exceptional comfort and a greater sense of space created by intelligent design and adjustments, including a slimmer profile armrest. Guests can also enjoy a wide range of entertainment on the 13.3″ 4K touchscreen monitor, which also includes a convenient USB charging port.
Both cabins offer an elegant environment and the highest standards of comfort, whether passengers choose to rest, work or enjoy award-winning inflight entertainment.
The 787 Dreamliner is equipped with a new connectivity solution that offers high-speed Wi-Fi with streaming capabilities on board, as well as live TV, including news and sports channels.
Free chat packs provide access to popular messaging apps like WhatsApp, WeChat, Messenger, and more. In addition, navigation packages offer unlimited data throughout the flight.
In addition, Etihad has partnered with Armani Casa to offer travelers bespoke tableware and furnishings designed by the renowned international design brand.
