Etihad Airways is the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and based in Abu Dhabi. It operates an extensive network of international flights, which connects more than 80 destinations across six continents. The airline has been flying to Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) for some time. It’s now adding Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) as its fourth US destination.
Flights between Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) will begin on March 24th. Etihad will operate the flight 4x weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays using a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner for this route. The Boeing 787-9 can hold up to 299 passengers between Business (28) and Economy Class (271).
While the Boeing 787-9 is certainly nice, it doesn’t have the incredibly luxurious experience that can be found on the carrier’s Airbus A380. That plane includes First Class Suites and The Residence (which is as close to flying private as you can get on a commercial aircraft, complete with its own shower).
Anthony’s Take: I have not flown on any of the three Middle Eastern airlines (Emirates, Etihad Airways, or Qatar Airways). As I always say, new routes and expanded choices are great. We’ll see if my travels ever take me to the United Arab Emirates.
