Surely leasing would be a better option , I know Thai frequently lease one of their slots during the quiet summer months ......I had better book one of those treble milage flights before the deadline on the 9th June and as an added enhancement I can pick my own row

Yes, I love how they say the meals are bigger but when you see them next to the cutlery or cup you realise is looks smaller than before!

I wonder if that's that's Etihad's end game, make the Y meals smaller so they can get extra revenue selling the junk food mid flight. Amazing how they've taken this retrograde step when the better airlines are incorporating snack ordering via the IFE.

Slightly off topic , thank you to those ( 42 people so far ) who private messaged me , regarding a few tricks I know , the response has been immense , quite astounding..... . I'm trying to answer every person individually , route by route , but this takes time , I'm only a one individual trying very hard to help other frustrated Etihad customer's enhance their journey ......A special welcome to Etihad jobsworths who've tried to gain my inside knowledge of what a failing airline Etihad has become .....To all of you , my only comment is , .GET STUFFED

Saw some comments on that youtube review bashing Etihads new meal scheme from people I suspect are Etihad staff (possibly cabin crew) pointing out that Etihads duty is to take passengers safely from one point to another, not to serve good food...…..

Wow. What attitude if true. Sure, ANY airline's duty is to get you from A to B safely, so with that as a baseline what else are you going to do to entice me with to spend my money with you? Tiny meals vs Full Service? Know where I'd spend my money.

Indeed and fortunately most airlines have good safety records and get their passengers safely from A to B. However they are in competition and therefore considerations like the food and drink, seat pitch, in flight entertainment, customer service and so on are important drivers of choice (along of course times and cost)
