Etihad Airways Upgrades China Services

Part of the airline’s plan to operate all 28 weekly services to Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai and Hong Kong using next-generation Dreamliner aircraft, Etihad’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner has upgraded its daily service from Abu Dhabi to Hong Kong to the 787-9 Dreamliner, while Beijing has moved the 787-10 Dreamliner. From 1 July, the daily service from Abu Dhabi to Chengdu will be upgraded to B787-9, and the current 787-9 daily service from Abu Dhabi to Shanghai will replaced by the larger 787-10 Dreamliner.

The new 787-9 Dreamliner features Etihad Airways’ next-generation business and economy class seats. It will operate with 299 seats, including 28 in Business Class and 271 in Economy Class, representing a 27 per cent increase in Business Class capacity, and a 14 per cent capacity increase across all cabins. Etihad Airways’ Boeing 787-9 flights, meanwhile, include food and beverage managers in business class and a flying nanny in economy class to provide extra specialised care for families with young children.
