Etihad Airways removes first class on JFK Flights

Etihad Airways removes first class on JFK Flights

The airline is currently only operating a two-cabin service to New York

In March, Etihad Airways announced that it had temporarily stopped operating its first-class cabin on its New York route until July. The airline has now extended this removal of first-class service until the end of August.

Between 27 March and 31 August, 2021, Etihad Airways has scheduled a two-cabin Boeing 787-9 between Abu Dhabi and New York, featuring just business class and economy.

Etihad has grounded its entire A380 fleet and plans to retire its entire 777 fleet, leaving only five Boeing 787-9s with first-class cabins.

Etihad had initially scheduled the two-cabin 787 on the route until 1 July so this latest development represents a two-month extension of this reduced cabin service.
