When you travel via flights you require three essential things i.e. Comfort, Impeccable Hospitality, Delectable Food. Etihad Airways in my opinion has all three of them. An airline which flies across the globe serving its best services to their customers. If we talk about in-flight food which is the most significant part of every passengers traveling journey, Etihad Airways gives their 100% to the On Board food and ensures that excellent quality is served to there customers as they consider all passengers as esteemed.
Traveling via Etihad Airways First Class Cabin was a fantastic traveling experience for me till date. All the crew members are warm and hospitable , they had taken good care of every little thing I required. Arranging bed, picking up wrappers of chocolate which I kept on the tray, organizing food, asking me if anything was required by me. If they found that my glass of water is empty they would fill it up before I even requested them for it. Onboard chefs are very helpful they explained in depth about the dishes which I relished eating. The food was not at all cold or messy, it was served in beautiful elegant crockery. Plates, spoons, butter knife, bowls, glasses all were spick and span, I didn’t find a single stain , crack or any chipped crockery.
While having my food I was thinking that I am in a luxurious fine dining restaurant which is flying high in the sky.
Sharing my food detailing with Etihad Airways:-
Arabic Coffee and a Chocolate.
Starting from the lounge as soon as I entered Etihad Airways First Class lounge at Abu Dhabi, I was welcomed with an Arabic coffee and a chocolate. Creamy rich flavored coffee gave a positive image of the airways in my mind.

Gulf Chicken Biryani
As I am a complete foodie I requested the cabin crew for Gulf Chicken Biryani and this dish was so full of flavors that even now I am unable to forget it’s flavor.
