Flying horizontally, 24 hour service & massages on demand. What more could a traveller want?
Travelling to New York from Singapore is no stones throw away, but Etihad sure know how to make you comfortable during the 22 hour flight.
With twinkling stars in the ceiling of the cabin, a full bed and pyjamas to keep you comfortable, there’s not much to complain about.
Meal services & a full fledged bar are available around the clock with a wide range of food & beverage choices, depending on where you are departing from and landing to.
Our flight took off from Singapore Changi Airport and was due to land in JFK, with a 3 hour transit in Abu Dhabi. However, due to unpredictable delays, we were in transit for 7 hours. Having access to the Etihad lounge was key at this point. They had an amazing Six Senses Spa, which was exciting: 1, because we were bored with 7 hours to kill, and 2, because it reminded us of the Six Senses Maldives.
I really wanted to get a massage on that giant hot stone, but seeing as we did not have any prior reservations, it was fully booked. So, we opted for a 25 minute head & back massage and a shower settled for a picture of the room instead. Let me just say, I have never had 25 minutes of bliss like that before.
After 7 hours, it was then off to the A380 for our flight from Abu Dhabi to NYC.
Thanks to Etihad for the amazing experience.
