Etihad Airways' striking latest first class cabin

IS it possible to forget you are flying when trapped in a limited space at 39,000 feet? And just as significantly, is it possible to be pampered to within an inch of your life?

Well, the good folk at Etihad Airways are absolutely giving it a shot with their new first class cabin, refurbished at a cost of about $70 million.

The Abu Dhabi-headquartered airline has filled the front end of the plane with a host of slight touches that, when put together, add up to a level of luxury and comfort almost not probable to find fault with.

The standard elements of first class are there - an almost idiotically wide seat that folds into a fully flat bed. Comfy pyjamas to sleep in, keeping your clothes fresh for arrival and an enormous screen to watch your preferred movies and television shows.

Etihad Airways flies nonstop daily from Sydney and Melbourne to Abu Dhabi. It moreover flies three times a week from Brisbane, via Singapore.
