The business seat is a reclining comfortable chair, with ample legroom, adjustable headrest, footrest and lumbar support.
With Etihad flights, the experience begins before your departure.

In the lounge you can enjoy all-day dining or unwind in the spa. Once on board, you have either a personal 18-inch touch screen TV (business studio), 15.4-inch TV (business flatbed) or 10.16-inch TV (business seat) with over 750 hours of the newest movies, old classics and games.

The on board dining is a great experience, with any-time dining, an onboard food and duty manager to help you pair your meal with wines from the boutique wine list and elegant full-sized dining ware. Once back on the ground, you can take a shower while the airline steams your clothes back to perfection.
