For as far as I can remember, or let’s just say since I was born 30 years ago, traveling through Abu Dhabi International Airport was the most predictable and rigorously unchanging process I could think of. Just like everyone else, visions of the unique greenish-blue rotunda always come to mind at even the slightest thought of this airport. Simply put, change was never on the agenda at Abu Dhabi; the airport was there, it worked well, and Gulf Air was happy, so why mess with that?

Today, things are different. Dubai has advanced years ahead of our times, Doha gained momentum, and even Bahrain had a go at its own niche in aims of leaving the eighties and their rotundas behind. Certainly so, Abu Dhabi also saw the light at the end of the tunnel. Stripping lowly Gulf Air to its bare bones, Etihad made Abu Dhabi home and has one of the most aggressive expansion plans in the world that an airport with a mere five million passenger capacity can never handle. And so, a new terminal was planned.

On April 7th 2009, Abu Dhabi International Airport’s Terminal 3, the new home of Etihad Airways, was declared fully operational and the majority of Etihad flights were transferred to this new facility. Raising the annual capacity to 12 million passengers, Terminal 3 adds a modern face to Abu Dhabi, and an opportunity for Etihad to further demonstrate its top-class product.

Abu Dhabi now joins the masses, and flexes its muscles, and this is not where it ends. Terminal 3 is just an interim solution for only a few years until a new airport rises from the grounds. From now on, time will simply fly.


Welcome To Terminal 3



Welcome to my 14th Trip Report,

This Trip Report will cover my flight on Etihad Airways to Sydney, from Abu Dhabi’s new Terminal 3. This will be a brief TR, as I have reported many Etihad flights in the past, and I also had to be careful with taking pictures at AUH, for security purposes. Nevertheless, at least you get to see something.

This TR will cover my first portion of my spring travels. I had about a week off from work and I was aching to get on an airplane and go somewhere. I decided to meet a friend in Sydney for a few days, and return back with a stopover in Singapore for another few days.

So many obsessive thoughts came to mind when I searched for flights. however, being a huge fan of the underdog non-flagship frequencies of any route, I decided to give Etihad’s second Sydney frequency a try. In the 4th quarter of 2008, Etihad introduced 4 additional frequencies to Sydney with a night-time departure from Abu Dhabi. This was perfect timing for me, as I could go to work that day, and fly out at night.

I booked a one-way ticket in Coral Economy, and planned to use my miles to upgrade to Pearl Business at the airport on the day of travel, a new feature introduced by Etihad.


Wednesday April 15th 2009

I had a very busy day at work, and almost thought that I may need to scrap my travel plans. However, I managed to barely get by but had no time to go back home and change my clothes, or even shower. Luckily however, I had my luggage in my car, along with a spare change of clothes.

I got into my car, where I discreetly changed my clothes, grabbed my luggage and headed towards the airport at around 7:20pm, walking past Terminal 1 and towards T3.

Etihad Dominates Terminal 3




Terminal 3 Departures Entrance




After cruising around the curbside and smoking a few cigarettes, I proceeded inside the terminal at 7:30pm. The departures area of Terminal 3 is separated into two sections; one soley for Etihad’s premium passengers, and the other only for Coral Economy passengers. As I was traveling in Economy, I arrived at the Economy class section, where I was greeted by friendly airport staff who are standing by to guide all passengers. After learning that I was traveling to Sydney tonight, the friendly staff guided me towards the check-in desks and wished me a pleasant flight.


Departures Hall




I arrived at the check-in desk at 7:30pm, and handed my documents to the Etihad agent who welcomed me as he started typing away my details in the computer.


Etihad Airways Check-In Desks At Terminal 3






As I waited to be checked-in, I noticed the agent repeatedly swiping my passport on his computer.

“Sir, have you filled out an ETA?”
“What is an ETA?”
“Its an Electronic Travel Authority that is mandatory to complete before traveling to Australia”
“I was never informed about this ETA”
“Just one moment sir”

The agent got off his desk and went looking to consult with his manager. After some moments, he returned with his manager.

“Sir you need to complete an ETA before traveling to Sydney, did you not know that?”
“No I did not, and I purchased this ticket from your office in town, and no one informed me”
“We do not inform anyone sir, you need to know about it”
“?!?!?!?!”

That was the most ridiculous response I have ever heard. How on earth will I know what the hell an ETA is? And why is it strictly enforced to inform all passengers that their details must be submitted prior to flying to the USA for example, and not in this case?

“Don’t worry sir, we can do it for you here, please proceed to the ticketing desk and the agent will help you”

I grabbed my passport and ticket and headed to the ticketing desk located right behind check-in. I explained my situation to the agent and she gladly agreed to type up this mysterious ETA for me. I waited, she typed away, I waited some more, she typed some more, and this went on for some time before she handed back my documents and my printout and asked me to go back to the check-in desk.

Heading back to the same check-in agent, he performed his second attempt at checking me in. This was followed by another attempt of repetitively swiping my passport on his computer.

“What now?”
“Sir the computer is not accepting you into the system, please wait, we will have to call our Sydney office”


Check-In Desk




By then I was feeling a little edgy and impatient. A while later the agent and his manager returned back to me and asked me to go back to the ticketing desk where she will have to type up another form because my passport details were incorrectly entered.

I went back to the slow ticketing agent, where she took forever again to type it up.

“I would like to upgrade to Pearl Business using my miles please, how do I do that?”
“When you go back to check-in, you can inform the agent, and he will check if there are any seats available and tell you, then you come back here and let me know if there are any seats available and I can process it for you”
“?!?!?!??!”

The ETA was finally printed out, and actually worked this time. I was eventually checked-in, and also was lucky that there were plenty seats available in Pearl Business. However, one last time, I had to go back to the ticketing desk to get my upgrade done.


FIDS




Overall the process took one and a half hours, and was one of the stupidest experiences I had with Etihad. It was highly unnecessary and clearly evident that Etihad has a lot to learn on the ground handling front.


Boarding Pass



Lounge Invite




At 8:55pm I headed straight towards immigration and security, which were nothing out of the ordinary. By 9pm I was airside. I decided to pay a quick visit to Etihad’s new premium lounge for a bite to eat and a quick photo opportunity.

The lounge itself was much better than what is available in Terminal 1. It is segregated into three sections, one for Diamond First, the second for Pearl Business, and the third for the spa. All three sections had a common aisle that also included a concierge and showers.

Tasty Lounge Food




I left the lounge by 9:20pm and decided to head towards the gate, and along the way, I snapped some photos of the scenery.


Duty Free












Past Duty Free, Walking Towards The Gate










One other reason for choosing this specific flight to Sydney was that it was scheduled to operate using the A346 on that night. While I wanted to fly EY’s A346, I was more in hopes of flying the Formula 1 themed aircraft, A6-EHJ. One could only hope at least, and so I did.

Walking towards the gate, I could barely see the aircraft outside because it was dark. However I was able to catch a glimpse of the tails. Spotting a white and black checkered tail, the F1 aircraft was evidently available for a flight. Quickly estimating what gate it was docked at from where I was located, the result was outstanding! It was assigned to operate to Sydney that night!

At 9:40am I arrived at Gate 33, where I stood in a short queue. Shortly afterwards I arrived at the security podium where the Etihad security agent checked my passport and ensured I had filled out an ETA, before letting me in the holding area.

At 9:45pm boarding commenced with no announcement. I proceeded towards the gate, and stood in line for boarding.

Standing In Line For Boarding




I arrived at the podium and handed the agent my boarding pass. She tore off the larger portion for her and handed me back my stub. She wished me a pleasant flight, after which I proceeded through the aerobridge towards the aircraft.

Arriving At The Door




Arriving at Door 2L, I was greeted by Sabrina, an Indian Cabin Manager operating tonight’s flight.

“Welcome on board……Mr. Hawi, my colleague will escort you to your seat”
“Enjoy your flight”


She signaled for her colleague, a lovely Kholoud from Egypt to escort me to my seat.

“Mr. Hawi, welcome on board, please follow me”


By 9:55pm I was on board.

Pearl Business Class Cabin Before Arrival




At 6PM Sydney local time, we started our initial descent towards Kingsford Smith International Airport. The seatbelt sign was switched on, and the crew made their final preparations for landing.

Customary regulations at the arrival point require all aircraft cabins to be sprayed with insecticide prior to arrival. As such, the crew passed around the aisle spraying one whole bottle of insecticide for each aisle from end to end. I waited for the crew to appear by my side of the aisle with my camera ready, and as she passed by, I clicked a photo. She looked at me, laughed and said “Sho Hada?” meaning “What’s this?” in Arabic.


Spraying Insecticide




At 6:35PM A6-EHJ made the smoothest touchdown at SYD, bringing this great flight to an end. After a short taxi, we docked at the gate, and deplaned.

I had heard many horror stories about Autralia’s customs, however, my experience in that area was absolutely flawless. However, it was right before that during immigration where I was questioned about why I was traveling on my own, how much I paid for the ticket, where I work, how much I get paid per month in my local currency, and in US Dollars, how much I get paid per year in my local currency and in dollars, where I plan to stay in Sydney, what I plan to see and do, who I plan to meet, and the officer even asked to see my Lonely Planet Sydney guide!

In the end, I learned that there is a lot of drug trafficking and smuggling that goes through the UAE to Sydney from points in Europe and further behind, and he thought I could be one of these types of people.


Overall Etihad delivered an excellent in-flight product as usual, however I was extremely unhappy with the ground experience. I believe that the airline is obliged to inform all passengers about all entry requirements such the ETA in this case, in order to prevent unnecessary processes that waste time for both the passenger and also the airline.

Thank you all for reading, and I hope you enjoyed it. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Stay tuned for my next Trip Report on my flight to Singapore.

Hi Roni,

I enjoy this great TR with EY very much!

The AUH Terminal 3 looks very modern and more customer friendly. The Etihad Lounge meets my expectations based on their website.

Quoting Ronerone (Thread starter):
“I would like to upgrade to Pearl Business using my miles please, how do I do that?”
“When you go back to check-in, you can inform the agent, and he will check if there are any seats available and tell you, then you come back here and let me know if there are any seats available and I can process it for you”

How bureaucratic! Luckily it was not that busy when you were there.

Anyway, I think I would give EY a try sometime!

Cheers,
Suryo

Hello there Roni, great report as usual! It was finally nice to see some new reports on the forum.

As always the pics were great, and it's always nice to see some fisheye. A question though, Assuming that you have the Canon 15mm fisheye, right? How is that working out on a 1,6x crop camera (The 400D IIRC)?

Your experiences in EY J seemed pretty averege, but the rather bad service you got on he ground seemed somewhat strange. Maybe they'll make a change to that soon, and provide all passengers with the information they'd require...

Nope, all airlines stipulate that you must inform yourself of entry requirements to your destination. They will of course place this information on websites, but I have never been advised of visa requirements of any country I travel to when booking a ticket.

Great report though, I enjoyed it especially as EY is now the fastest way from Dublin to Sydney with their one stop service via AUH. I look forward to trying the service out very soon.

Do you know how EY are with staff of other airlines travelling on ZED tickets? Would be interested to hear from anyone in the know?

I experienced the same situation with the ETA while traveling EZE-AKL-SYD on AR.
On check-in at EZE the agent told me I didn;t have a "visa" to travel to Australia and that she couldn't check me in.
She sent me to the AR ticket sales desk where I had to pay AR$30 to have one issued.
Would hav ebeen nice of AR would have said something, anything, at the time of booking, but Shamrock 604 is correct in that its incumbent upon the passenger to know what's required to enter the destination country.

Hi Roni,

Good to see you are still travelling, it was only yesterday I thought I'd better make sure you are ok, you haveing been so quiet!

I booked a one-way ticket in Coral Economy, and planned to use my miles to upgrade to Pearl Business at the airport on the day of travel, a new feature introduced by Etihad.

For the airlines, providing this kind of information would be next to impossible and would open up a legal mine field. The reason is that a country's entry requirements vary depending on what passport you hold. As an Irish passport holder, I'll get in pretty much anywhere on the most leniant restrictions (except Columbia, due a diplomatic spat between our two countries).

However, a British citizen may be subject to different requirements, a Norwegian to different ones still etc etc. These requirements can also change regularly depending on what country is fighting with who at the moment or what the economic situation is at that time etc etc. To maintain a database, accuratly, of all the different combinations of entry requirements required for all different passport holders for all different destinations would be next to impossible and would leave the airlines open to litigation in the event of errors.

It is just best for everyone to steer clear of the issue, and let the passenger familiarise themselves with the requirements as they apply to them....

Remember, even for different types of passport from the same country, there can be differences in entry requirements!!

You are the one travelling, the airline just brings you there, so it's your job to ensure you get into your destination country.  Wink

Hi Roni,
Like Mark I was wondering where you were!! Glad your still flying around. Thanks for another fantastic trip report. 10/10 as usual. The new Terminal looks really nice .Very different to the AUH I remember years ago.

As for the ETA issue it could have been handled differently and should only take 3 mins at most. I agree with you it should be advised to you. ETA is something that ALL need to have to enter Australia and that is widely known.

Its ironic that airlines are not liable to tell you this yet Travel Agents and Tour Operators are !!
I know agents that have been sued for not telling a client they needed a Visa/ETA .

Anyway great report again.

Sad, I thought EY had improved since I last swore not to travel them.

One question, Terminal 3 is ONLY for EY or do few airlines here and there use it as well. And how do people transfer from non EY to EY flights? For example 9W flight from India to AUH and then connect to an EY flight somewhere?

And is that filthy terminal still in use, 1 or 2 whatever the number is.

Agree that OZ is a case in point, but do you then start advising people for some destinations, but then not others?

It is amazing that travel agents and tour operators are liable to provide that information. A general statement along the lines of "please contact the embassy of your destination country to confirm your entry requirements" would be a much better solution for all involved.

Quoting IcLCY (Reply 5):
Your lack of knowledge of Australian entry requirements is not the fault of Eithad's staff!

Now now... it is common knowledge amongst the travel industry that ETA is a necessity for ALL countries with the exception of NZ and UK. So far, if I have made my bookings via human contact (airline office or travel agent) I have always been asked if I have a valid ETA for travel to Australia. Whilst it isn't the responsibility of the airlines, a passenger arriving with in Australia with invalid documents will in some cases result in a fine for the airline. So why can't the booking party include an additional measure of check to ensure this? It is not that difficult.

But still, Roni darling - you had to know about this requirement. Talk to me next time before you travel to Australia, ok?

Quoting Ronerone (Thread starter):
Customary regulations at the arrival point require all aircraft cabins to be sprayed with insecticide prior to arrival. As such, the crew passed around the aisle spraying one whole bottle of insecticide for each aisle from end to end.

This strangely wasn't done on my flight to MEL. I thought it was just something forgotten by EK but talking to SIN7 over dinner last weekend, he too mentioned this spraying wasn't performed on his SQ flight prior to arrival in BNE. Have the rules been tweaked?

Now on to the other part...

thanks for a great trip report and the wonderful pictures. Can't wait to fly EY myself in September in First Class BNE-SYD-AUH-FRA return. Would you know if there is a chance that I'll get the new first class on my SYD-AUH-SYD legs ?

Cheers from Brisbane,

Peter

As usual Roni, absolutely great trip report. Not that I expect anything less from you.

Quoting Ronerone (Thread starter):
“I would like to upgrade to Pearl Business using my miles please, how do I do that?”
“When you go back to check-in, you can inform the agent, and he will check if there are any seats available and tell you, then you come back here and let me know if there are any seats available and I can process it for you”
“?!?!?!??!”

Ummm... You sure you weren't flying a US airline? Why is it that the only Middle Eastern airline that seems to have its act together on the ground is the one based in Dubai. Looks like Etihad and Qatar still have some ways to go.

Quoting Ronerone (Thread starter):

Etihad Airways Premium Lounge At Terminal 3

That looks so much better than the old lounge. It seems to have come out quit nicely. Hopefully I'll get to use it sometime in the future.

Quoting Ronerone (Thread starter):
I snapped some photos of the scenery.

WOW! This is not the same airport I used in 1999 or even 2007! Glad to see AUH making strides in trying to become a world class airport.

As far as the whole ETA thing, all I can say is I always have to fill out a mound of paperwork whenever I travel thanks to the country my passport belongs too. Thus by default I always have to study the entry requirements carefully. Sadly there are only two countries that I can travel to freely, consider yourself lucky!

Its good to hear that Etihad has maintained its high standards for the time being. Rapid growth always takes a toll on service consistency and hopefully Etihad never falls victim to this.

This strangely wasn't done on my flight to MEL. I thought it was just something forgotten by EK

Cabins are sprayed for all Australian bound flights before customer boarding commences. The aircraft doors are closed, air-con switched off and all hatracks/stowages opened before spraying. Doors are then opened, air-con powered up for the Dubai summer and boarding commences.

Ive enjoyed your pair of trip reports so far and am looking forward to the final installment. Was interesting to see inside the QF A380, there arent too many of those reports floating around.

Agree that OZ is a case in point, but do you then start advising people for some destinations, but then not others?

Tour Operators/Holiday Companies and Agents must advise passengers of the entry requirements for their destination and transit points. Thats where the airlines get off lightly. This information is avilable in ALL CRS systems ''TIMATIC''.

Star Alliance even have a web based version within their website.

Hey Roni,

What a fantastic TR. As always, its a pleasure to read. First off, the new terminal at AUH is simply gorgeous. The lounge is exemplary and so are the food offerings.

Quoting Ronerone (Thread starter):
“Sir you need to complete an ETA before traveling to Sydney, did you not know that?”
“No I did not, and I purchased this ticket from your office in town, and no one informed me”
“We do not inform anyone sir, you need to know about it”
“?!?!?!?!”

Well since i need visas for traveling to most countries, i am very used to finding out the paperwork requirement before i make travel plans. However, it seems that you might need to be doing some homework yourself, having said that, i wish that while booking your tickets, the airlines should've informed you of this. But now you know, so i am sure this won't happen again, atleast from your side.

So you got to be on the A346 of your choice and upgraded to pearl class, i am jealous because i so want to ride the A345 and A346 and haven't gotten the chance to do so. Both these types have eluded me so far. The food looks good and so does its presentation.

Seems like you enjoyed EY inspite of the minor hiccup at check in.

Great TR, an enjoyable read after a very long hibernation.

Regards,
MK

Ahlan Ronerone!

Stumbled onto your TR while still in the office,but i couldnt resist reading the whole thing even though i normally avoid A.net from work.Well done as always mate.

Personally im a big fan of EY myself,i have been flying them since their days of their infancy- the days of those Ex.Volare and TAM jets.Am i happy to see the back of those jets or what.

I think EY's flagship J class is certainly the best business class hardware i have used.The service is also very nice,but not quite QR.Overall i would take it over EK any day of the week.Interestingly i still havent used Terminal 3 as of yet,but my wife did a fort night ago and she was impressed by the fact that there was even a nanny for the kids in kids room of the F/J lounge area,something i dont recall in the lounge in the older terminal.But otherwise the lounge itself is very similar to the upgraded J class lounge in the old terminal.

Have a good time in SYD.

PS: The lady infront of you in the aerobridge looks rather fit i must say,atleast from the rear she does!

Awesome TR, Roni. You never dissapoint. And I know how much you like EY-whenever I think of EY's J/F product, I think of the amazing TR you wrote about AUH-JFK in F a while back.

T3 looks good, gosh, I do need to try that one.

Great photos, you have an eye for minute details.

Was surprised that you had an Egyptian FA (Kholoud) working the J cabin, no less. Egyptians not working at Egyptair are rare, IME.

Shame about the stringent officers down under in SYD-they could be a bit more courteous to people.

Dear All,

Thank you for your support and for your comments!  Smile

I guess i need to clarify my issue with the ETA thing. Perhaps i got a little too emotionally charged when i typed up this TR.

However, what i still don't seem to understand is, that if this Australian visa system is electronic and practically only requires a simple entry of your passport details, then why can't an airline post a little note on their websites to notify the customer while he/she is making the booking?

When traveling to the USA it is always mentioned on the website that passport details must be entered prior to one's departure!

It seems that everyone has to complete an ETA, except for European nationalities (i think) .. so why not standardize it and inform everyone? It's quite simple!

Anyways, part of me does blame EY, but it doesnt mean i'm not to blame either. I 'assumed' that being an American passport holder, i wouldnt need to bother checking on visa requirements for especially a country like Australia  Smile

Anyways, no biggie, i went to Sydney and had a great time and that's all that matters  Smile

As always the pics were great, and it's always nice to see some fisheye. A question though, Assuming that you have the Canon 15mm fisheye, right? How is that working out on a 1,6x crop camera (The 400D IIRC)?

Mr. Jonas!

How are you doing mate? Hope all is well!

This is a very good question. Last week i had the pleasure of trying (and eventually buying) the Sigma 10mm fisheye and the difference was just INSANE! It blew my mind!

I guess with a 1.6x crop the usual dramatic edges associated with the fisheye, and that of the Canon 15mm, will not appear as much as say with a full frame.

Don't get me wrong though, the 15mm is still a great lens, but does not come close to the Sigma in my opinion.

Quoting LH4116 (Reply 3):
Your experiences in EY J seemed pretty averege, but the rather bad service you got on he ground seemed somewhat strange. Maybe they'll make a change to that soon, and provide all passengers with the information they'd require...

My experience in EY J was far ahead of just average  Smile

EY has a top notch J product, and they have yet to really let me down!

On the ground handling front, they could definitely use some fine-tuning. But let's also keep in mind that EY is very new to self-handling!

Quoting Shamrock604 (Reply 4):
Great report though, I enjoyed it especially as EY is now the fastest way from Dublin to Sydney with their one stop service via AUH. I look forward to trying the service out very soon.

Thanks Shamrock604!

EY is milking Dublin! They are so happy with that route.

Quoting Ojas (Reply 11):
One question, Terminal 3 is ONLY for EY or do few airlines here and there use it as well. And how do people transfer from non EY to EY flights? For example 9W flight from India to AUH and then connect to an EY flight somewhere?

T3 is only for EY flights. All codeshare flights, like those of 9W, JAT etc are from T1, and the transfer between the two terminals is very simple. The connector linking T1 and T3 is located airside right after you leave the main satellite in T1.

It will definitely not feel like the never-ending trek that DXB is known for, thats for sure.

Quote:
And is that filthy terminal still in use, 1 or 2 whatever the number is.

Of course! .. It's a very efficient terminal mind you, setting the looks aside. With the transfer of EY flights to T3, traveling through T1 is a much better experience now.

Interestingly, the airlines absolutely love T1 too.

Also, T1 is about to undergo a refurbishment program that will hopefully improve the look.

Hi BPS3458,

I am not sure if you will get the new F product on the BNE flight.

I know that the new F Suites will be inaugurated in September, and i was told that the first flight will be Chicago. But things may change till then.

However, supposing that you do get the current F product, i would advise you to go for J. The service is almost exactly the same minus the meal trays. Also, the F seats are rather flimsy and almost always malfunction.

However, with teh new F suites, the seats will be different and more private, and also the service will be more differentiated.

J class will get a slight upgrade aswell. The seats will remain the same overall, but only with a few minor adjustments. This also includes a change of the fabric color from the light green to a striped black and white. I saw the model last month and it looks really nice!
