Etihad First Flight To Manila - Pics

Wed Feb 15, 2006 10:26 pm

Etihad Airways' inaugural flight to Manila took place two days ago, and was operated by A330-202 A6-EYW, although the route will shortly be served by B777-300ER equipment.

Here are some pics I managed to take of the first arrival and departure:

Did any other a.netters see the aircraft in MNL? I'd be interested if anyone got any take-off shots of the second flight yesterday ( since I was on it  Wink )

Great shots, UK_Dispatcher. How full was the first in- and out-bound flights?

Best,

Not sure about AUH-MNL, but the first two MNL-AUH flights were full.

Wow great pics. Did you get any shots of other aircrafts?

There seems to be a lack of KL pictures in MNL.

Are you gonna try and post some of em here?

Wow!!! I didn't even know they announced service to Manila.

Great to see an airline starting service to Manila instead of pulling out (the current trend)...

It's in amadeus now, just had a look on there now. About time too! Can't wait to see EY at MAN, their a/c look so good.
