Beyond the First Class: The Residence by Etihad

Located at the front end of the aircraft on the upper deck, The Residence is a three-section private cabin available on Etihad’s Airbus A380s – The space, covering almost 12 square metres on the aircraft, is unprecedented in commercial airline travel

The Residence by Etihad has a living room, a bedroom and a bathroom with shower. There is also an on-board butler solely to service these guests, trained by the Savoy Butler Academy in London, part of the Savoy Hotel. The enormous size of the double-deck aircraft has allowed airlines to design cabin configurations that would have been impossible before.
