Etihad is the new cool. The novelty of Emirates Shower Class has worn off and, at least for me, Qatar’s Business Class was never that great. I just flew Etihad First from Abu Dhabi to LAX but that was on a 777 which doesn’t count.
Back from my trip, I’m not spending my mornings working, I’m spending them searching for availability on Etihad A380 service from somewhere nearby to somewhere far away. So far I have found zero availability through 2016. I’m regretting not searching for LHR-AUH-ATH which would’ve been far more enjoyable than my EasyJet flight. With the impending AA devaluation, I must find a flight on Etihad Apartments before reality hits and the only affordable carrier is Allegiant.
Drama aside, I’m jealous that OMAAT flew the inaugural flight from AUH-JFK. Not to be outdone and absolutely baller is TPG who skipped the Apartments and booked the Residences with straight cash homey in the amount of $32,000!
The cool kids are all flying Etihad Apartments. Meanwhile, TPOL is feeling left out like the fat kid in dodgeball.
