I was ready to call Uber Abu Dhabi and thought why not stop by the Etihad Arrivals Lounge and find out if the chauffeur service truly wasn’t available. It wasn’t Based on my tweets to Etihad and the interaction with the Etihad staff on the ground I am not sure if it’s because I booked through AA or because I was there for a layover. I was given both reasons.
While the staff was double checking, I checked out the lounge and stayed longer than anticipated. It wasn’t futuristic like the Virgin Atlantic Revivals Lounge in London but it did have plenty of snacks, showers, and even the option to get your clothes pressed.
The best amenity was the free shave service. Complimentary to first class passengers, SHAVE by Etihad is something I wish was available to me every day. It seems uncouth for a man to shave on his own with rugged blades when there’s an artist who can do it for you. I’m adding this to the list of must haves when I grow up.
After a great shave, I went outside to locate my Uber.
