If you think think your first-class seats are a bit too tight, then Etihad Airways just has the solution for you. Yes, even more space than a first-class seating! Its the Etihad Airways’ miniature 3-room suite called “The Residence”. With prices starting from $20,000 one-way between Dubai and London, this 125-square foot luxury concept will feature a living room, a double bedroom, an ensuite shower, a vanity area and a dedicated butler on its A380 Airbus.
Speaking at the unveiling media event, James Hogan, CEO Etihad Airways, revealed details of the new model, saying: “The Residences is a concept that you would usually find on a private jet or a super yacht.”
“This 125-square feet of space will be available for single or double occupancy, fully equipped with amenities, Poltrona Frau leather seating that you would find in the interiors of a Ferrari, custom designed carpets and an ensuite shower that comes with a vanity unit.”
He continued: “Those booking the residence will have a VIP concierge assigned to them that will handle the entire planning for them to ensure a tailored service to fulfil their needs.”
