Dubai Air Show: Day Five Highlights

After a busy few days, VHR found the time on day five of the Dubai Airshow to take tour on board an Etihad A380 commercial aircraft.

The tour began with a guide through the economy class cabins which displayed comfortable rows of seats with visual video presentations of the destinations Etihad travels to.
After this, we continued upstairs to business and first class cabins. Business class oozed elegance and comfort, offering a fold-out bed with the perfect dining experience.

First-class however was spectacular. Etihad have preserved both taste and luxury by investing in tan leather and a complimenting golden decor. Each booth offers both a bed and a sofa-chair, alongside a table to eat at and a TV to watch entertainment channels.

In the evening, after a long week of business networking, VHR were able to meet with friends and clients for celebrations on a successful week just passed at the 360 bar, adjacent to Dubai’s infamous Burj Al Arab.
