    The limo transfer from Dubai was efficiently managed through SMS, was on time and had a better car than when in First (see other review). Etihad's dedicated terminal in Abu Dhabi is very smart and I was checked in quickly. I've read a lot of horror stories about the lounge being standing room only ...

    The limo to Heathrow was on time and the driver very polite. On arrival at T4 I was greeted at the kerb by a ground stewardess and a porter to carry my bag. Premium check-in was empty so that was completed rapidy and the same lady offered to escort me to the lounge but I reckoned I could manage on ...

    Flew from LHR via Abu Dhabi to Melbourne. The new business and first class lounge at Heathrow is fantastic with an a la carte restaurant, buffet, drinks service and the opportunity for a 15 minute spa treatment from Six Senses. Seats in business appear a little narrow at first but are certainly ...

    Recently flew MAN-AUH-SYD return in Etihad's Pearl Business Class. Most private seats are indeed those at the window which have nevertheless direct access to the aisle. The EF seats which are very together have no privacy, and unless you are a couple travelling together are to be avoided. These are ...
