With refined silhouettes, elevated contemporary finishes, mixed materials and embossed patterns, Etihad’s new dining service redefines Business Class travel. The use of multiple textures represents the cultural diversity of the UAE, while the color palette reflects the surroundings of Abu Dhabi, with dark green inspired by date palm trees, aquamarine representing the mangroves, and slate to symbolize the modern Abu Dhabi skyline. The signature cutlery is elegantly tactile, with patterned handles bringing the unmistakable Armani/Casa experience directly to each guest. The entire collection has been designed with sustainability in mind, with innovations that will reduce weight by up to 10 percent, resulting in reduced fuel burn and emissions.
The range of premium textiles brings together one of the world’s most renowned luxury lifestyle brands with premium materials for the ultimate in comfort and rest. The matching pillow case and duvet feature Armani/Casa signature designs, further enhancing the Business Class turn-down experience. On longer flights, guests will also enjoy new innovative memory foam mattresses, adding extra comfort to the fully-flat Business Class bed.
