Abu Dhabi-Hong Kong route to enjoy Etihad’s Business Studios

From April 16 to September 30, Etihad will be flying its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on its Abu Dhabi-Hong Kong route. This temporary arrangement means that business-class passengers on this service will be able to enjoy the airline’s newer seat product, the Business Studios. In comparison to Airbus A330-200 which currently operates this route, the Dreamliner has 28 seats in business class, each offering an extra inch of width; as well as an 18-inch in-flight entertainment screen that’s more than 2.5 inch larger.
