Etihad Airways is unlikely to welcome the Airbus A380 back to its fleet in the wake of the Covid-19 shutdown, chief executive Tony Douglas has confirmed. “We have now taken the strategic decision to park the A380s, I am sure it is very likely that we will not see them operating with Etihad again,” Douglas explained.

The Etihad decision also means the end of the Residence, the ultra-exclusive private cabin offered on the A380.

The Residence Seats

Designed for up to two guests, the luxury three-room apartment features an en-suite shower room, private bedroom and separate living area.

A VIP travel concierge and dedicated team are also on hand to take care of everything for travellers, from the chauffeur-driven limousine to a private airport lounge.

The Residence Bathroom

Before the pandemic, the service was offered on trips from Abu Dhabi to London, New York, Sydney, Paris and Seoul.
