Etihad to fly A380 superjumbo on Abu Dhabi-New York route

Etihad to fly A380 superjumbo on Abu Dhabi-New York route

Etihad Airways is happy to announce that on April 22, 2024, it will begin operating double-decker flights on the A380 to New York JFK.

Etihad’s ability to connect to the larger GCC and Indian subcontinent, as well as the US market, has been greatly enhanced with the launch of the A380. It will also bring in more tourists who want to take in the sights of the energetic city of Abu Dhabi.

On one of the two daily flights from Etihad to New York, the A380 will be in service. A 787-9 aircraft with First, Business, and Economy classes will fly the other daily route. Now that Etihad has brought its superjumbo back to the skies, the US route is the second destination—after London—to experience the amazing A380.

The cabin includes 337 Economy Smart seats with large pillows for maximum comfort and Etihad’s signature fixed-wing headrests, as well as 68 extra legroom seats with an extra 4 inches of space.
