I was fortunate to redeem 40k AA miles for travel from LHR to BOM via AUH in the Etihad A-380 First Class Apartment. My wife and I were travelling with our 9 month old baby. And, we were simply blown away by the hard and soft product on offer.
It is hard to overstate just how expansive the individual ‘apartments’ felt. Moreover, this feeling of space magnified almost exponentially when the crew dropped the wall between my wife’s apartment and mine. All this room was especially convenient for a couple travelling with a lap child. To top it off, the crew could not have been more attentive: they catered to our every need before we even thought of it.
The chef du jour took special care of our vegetarian impositions and produced some truly stellar gastronomical creations. Our butler even babysat our daughter in my wife’s apartment while my wife and I enjoyed our first fine dining experience (without our baby!) in my ‘room’.
All in all, it was a truly unforgettable experience.
