Etihad Airways announces Dreamliner upgrade for Abu Dhabi-Tokyo Narita flights
The Dreamliner provides passengers with luxurious first-class suites, business studios and economy smart seats. An on-board chef, food and beverage manager, and flying nanny will be on hand to deliver innovative hospitality services during flights.
“The B787 Dreamliner is an exceptional aircraft from an operational and guest experience perspective,” Kevin Knight, Etihad Aviation Group chief strategy and planning officer, said. “Its unique design and our innovative and stylish cabins offer a guest experience that’s superior in terms of luxury and comfort. “These product attributes and the Etihad in-flight service and hospitality -- on-board chefs, food and beverage managers and flying nannies -- make ours a winning proposition.”
Etihad Airways first serviced a flight between Abu Dhabi and Japan on Feb. 1, 2010, with weekly flights to and from Nagoya via Beijing. On March 30, 2014, the service was ramped up and Etihad began offering daily flights. The company added the Tokyo Narita flight on March 27, 2010, with five weekly nonstop flights. On March 31, 2013, daily service to Narita began.
