Does anyone know how many of Etihad's A340's so far have been refurbished with the first class suites, thanks.
Etihad indicates that their fleet of A340's will all be refurbished by the end of this year.

All EY flights to LHR has the new first class product on A346 and A333.

Just arrived from LHR 6 hours ago on EY 20 first class on A333.

Thanks, but it does not really give me the number of A340's that have been refurbished, also, am wondering if any of their -500's have been refurbished.

I think poster was referring to EY Flight 20, not that there were 20 first class seats on the A330.

As JohnClipper said, I meant EY flight 20 on first class. Sorry for the confusion.

EY first class has 12 suits.

I have to say it is a vey nice product.

3 A340-600's at present have the new First Class Suites and another should be online soon. I am not sure which aircraft is off to Malta next for the fit.

12 First Class suites fitted and demand has been excellent considering the current economic climate. That said I could not say what the yield is.



Etihad Girl, You're a great way to fly.

Thanks for that, we're flying EY MEL - AUH - JFK end of May in F, so am wondering if we get an opportunity to fly the new F.....does not look like it
They'll need to get going if they want to have all A340's done by the end of the year though

Would you be able to provide us with the configurations for each aircraft?
