Etihad and the Dreamliner

Rome and Frankfurt are gaining more Dreamliner services from Abu Dhabi from 1 June when Etihad Airways extends operations. Rome will gain a new two-class B787-10 Dreamliner, the largest variant of the aircraft, on the scheduled daily morning service.

The flight will complement the second overnight Boeing B777-300ER service, while on the same date Etihad will also introduce the a B787-9 Dreamliner on its two daily services to Frankfurt.

The 336-seat B787-10 features 32 Business studios and 304 Economy smart seats. The two-class B787-9 features Etihad’s next-generation 28-seat Business Class and 271-seat Economy Class cabins.

Etihad Aviation Group chief commercial officer Robin Kamark said: “Introducing more B787s to our fleet is allowing us to enhance the inflight experience, allowing our passengers to enjoy the most highly-customised Dreamliner cabins in the world.”

In another development, Etihad and Saudi Arabian Airlines are to expand their codeshare agreement following positive growth in traffic since the partnership began in November.

Etihad group CEO Tony Douglas said: “We now fly some 150 guests a day across each other’s networks. Our plan is to grow this number considerably through expansion of the codeshare agreement in the coming months, and to deliver more benefits to our customers.”
