Etihad Airways Business Class Product

Etihad flies its latest aircraft, the Boeing B787-10, between Abu Dhabi and Shanghai. This aircraft features the latest Business Studio seat (same seat as on the B787 and A380). This type of Business Class seat is in a staggered 1-2-1 configuration, however, half of the seats are facing the rear of the plane.

Etihad Business Studio on B787

Flights between Abu Dhabi and Frankfurt are operated by Boeing B787s and they all feature the Business Studio product.

However, flights between Abu Dhabi and Munich are operated by the Boeing B777-300ER. These aircraft also have a staggered Business Class seat in a 1-2-1 configuration, however, they are all front facing. Check Sam’s review below on this seat.
