At a glance

Business Class with Etihad is not business as usual. The Business Studios on our A380 and 787 Dreamliner offer more space to work, rest and play. They can be customised to suit every stage of your journey and are the embodiment of style, simplicity and functionality.

Our Business Studio has a unique dovetail design with forward and rear facing seats, offering you increased personal space. The modern design creates a sense of space and freedom, with direct aisle access and convenient storage spaces.

The seat converts into a comfortable fully-flat bed of up to 6 feet and 8 inches. Seat and aisle dividers offer more privacy and each seat has aisle access
