Does anybody know if the luggage compartment on Etihad Airways maintains a similar temp like the cabin or is it simply left without any kind of HVAC thus dropping to a very low temperature in the high skies?
I have no idea how cold it gets, but it's certainly freezing. (or close to freezing point) It also depends on the aircraft they are using. Some planes tend to have a some warmer sections of the holds. But I'm not expert on it, so don't shoot me on this one.
Are you planning on taking some specials things with you, or is there any other reason you are curious about this?
You also have the option to pack it in dry ice if you want to be really sure. But as for the limits of dry ice, you need to contact the airline. Also, not all kinds of foods can be transported, so make sure you know the custom rules for that...
