Etihad just debuted their A350-1000 business class at the Dubai Airshow 2021 and they’re stunning. Let’s take a look at the evolution of Etihad business class and you can peep the latest A350 with B/E Aerospace Super Diamond, reverse herringbone business class. Hattip to TravelingforMiles
I’ve flown several iterations of Etihad’s business class from the A330 which they refer to as Pearl Business Class. This is similar to what you’d find on Iberia featuring honeymoon style seats in the odd rows and an all aisle access. This is my least favorite version of Etihad business class – you can read the review of it here…from 2015
I’ve also flown their Business Studio multiple times. This is a sexy, sleek, improvement over the Pearl shown above. The configuration isn’t much different than the seats up above and I’d highly recommend it on the A380…which is currently grounded. You can also find it on their dreamliners.
And here’s the new business class cabin on the A350-1000

5x A35Ks were delivered in 2019 and 2020 and have since been stored

It’s an Etihad version of the British Airways Club Suites which features the same seats.
It’s one of my favorite business class. I prefer head out, feet in, configurations or what Is called reverse herringbone. Personally, I find it to be the most private and these particular seats offer an incredible amount of storage. You’ll find them on American and China Air as well:
What do you think of Etihad’s new A350 biz?
