Following a trip to Bangkok, on a day flight after several days’ layover in Abu Dhabi.
Upon arrival at Terminal 3 at the First and Business class entrance, a porter takes my luggage from the boot and brings it to the check-in desk, then remains with me for the brief wait. As there are so many people at the business check-in, I am redirected.
The room is nice but small, and crowded at this early hour (apologies for not having taken any photos, but there will be some in another review). Breakfast is buffet-style, like in a hotel, but there is not enough choice or service except at the Premium Terminal of Quatar Airways in Doha.
It is my second flight on Etihad, therefore the first on B777. The cabin is identical to that of the A340, but there are central overhead bins, so plenty of room for hand luggage (everyone has their own compartment). The service was identical, that is to say good quality, with the chief flight attendant introducing himself and saying goodbye to everyone at the end of the flight. The advantage of a daytime flight is unquestionably the "Anytime Kitchen." Apart from the benefits of breakfast and lunch/dinner, there is a snack menu and you can order hot meals —paninis, etc— at any time. I also recommend the warm giant cookie. What is nice about this cabin is that there are four “double” suites, ideal for the suites in the odd-numbered rows in the centre.
