Economy class seats in Etihad Airways have been designed for relaxation and comfort and with the passenger in mind. With adjustable back support, headrest and cradle recline feature, Etihad Airways ensures that your back rests in a more natural position helping you relax more easily. For added comfort you will also get a full size fleece blanket and cushions for longer flights.

The A380 boasts newly designed seats aptly names the ‘Economy Smart Seat’.  It has a distinctive headrest that provides a shoulder to lean, an adjustable back support and a 6 inch recline for a more comfortable flight. The seat also provides generous legroom and an accessible entertainment and connectivity hub on each seat back front. Coupled with the in-flight entertainment on long haul flights and menus to suit your departure time,


Etihad Airways offers you all the sparkle that other airlines offer in Business class but with a few more perks! As a seat you can expect generous recline, ample legroom, adjustable headrest, footrest and lumbar support. However as a fully flat bed with direct aisle access on long haul flights, you can also sleep soundly with full-size comforters and pillows too!

For A380 and 787 Dreamliner passengers, the ‘Business Studio’ offers yet more space to work and play! Not only does the seat convert into a fully flatbed but it also offers delightful touches such as seat and aisle dividers to ensure privacy, concealed storage and extra tables to enhance comfort and promote functionality.


Etihad Airways have revolutionised First class to a First class ‘apartment’. It’s not just a seat, First class now boasts a leather armchair to relax in, a separate fully flat 2 metre bed and even enough space to walk around after you have closed your privacy doors! Coupled with opportunity to freshen up with an energising shower in the First class bathroom, every last detail has been thought out carefully so you are sure to end your journey feeling as refreshed as when you boarded the plane!

On the A380 you even get some additional benefits such as ‘The Lobby’, an additional space for upper deck passengers to relax, socialise or work, equipped with power supply and USB ports!
