Etihad Airways has unveiled its new Business Class seating for its forthcoming 787 aircraft

Etihad Airways has used the occasion of the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai to reveal the new interior for its Boeing 787 Dreamliners that will join the fleet in the third quarter of this year.

Etihad’s new 787 Dreamliner cabin interior showcases further enhancements to our award-winning and industry-renowned cabins,” said Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Airways, In a May 1 press release. “Our new Business class takes the guest experience to new heights with the second evolution of the Business Studio which was launched on the Airbus A350-1000 last year,” he added.

Etihad is the first airline in the world to introduce a customized version of the Elements seat manufactured by Collins on the Boeing 787.

Each of the 32 Business seats has direct aisle access with the cabin designed in a 1-2-1 configuration. The seats recline to a fully lie-flat-bed 78 inches in length and feature a 17.3-inch Rave Ultra 4K monitor screen from Safran, Bluetooth headphone pairing, multiple charging ports and wireless charging, as well as plenty of storage. The new seats will provide added privacy provided by a suite door. The height of the suite has been further increased from the A350’s debut model, offering even greater privacy for guests.

Economy Class will feature 271 seats which are lighter in weight than the current fleet. Passengers are provided with a 13.3-inch Rave Ultra 4K touchscreen monitor from Safran which also includes a convenient USB charging port.

The 787 Dreamliner is fitted with a new connectivity solution from Viasat using Ka-band technology which offers high-speed Wi-Fi with streaming capabilities on board as well as Live TV, including news and sport channels.

Etihad’s unique partnership with Armani/Casa has now fully rolled out across the airline’s Business class cabins, providing guests with an unparalleled Business experience. The range features bespoke dining ware and soft furnishings designed in collaboration with celebrated international designer brand Armani/Casa.
