Etihadhas redefined luxury air travel even further following the unveiling of its new Diamond First Class cabin.

The new cabin contains individual suites, which have been designed to provide customers with more privacy, greater comfort and increased storage.

You can begin enjoying the experience from August 2009, when the suite is fitted onto a brand new A340-600.

The highlight is an extra-large seat that extends to a fully-flat bed 80.5 inches in length and which is equipped with built-in massager, lumbar support and adjustable headrest, as well as power sockets for a laptop, iPod and other electronic devices.

Each suite has its own personal wardrobe and mini bar, as well as 23″ wide-screen LCD screen, which features more than 600 hours of ‘on demand’ entertainment.

Meals are served on an extra large wood finished table and there are new compartments built into and around the seat for customers to stow their possession.

The cabin also features a new spacious bathroom with a full length mirror, new style wash basin and leather fold-down changing room seat to allow passengers to freshen up and change after take-off and prior to landing.

The cabin interior was created by craftsmen from some of the world’s top designers, including luxury leather upholstered by world-renowned Poltrona Frau, who also provide interiors for the famous Ferrari cars.

The new-look first class also includes new luxurious soft furnishings and designer amenity kits.

The new Diamond First will be rolled out across Etihad’s fleet over the next two years.
