Etihad's New Three-Room Suite, for When First Class Just Doesn't Cut It

When your stated goal is as grand as becoming the world’s best airline, you definitely want to go big in first class. To that end, Etihad Airways is installing a 125-square-foot, three-room suite it calls The Residence and sells as a premium cabin in its new Airbus A380 superjumbos.

The space, which costs about $43,000 for some flights, is priced to include two travelers and comes with a butler, chef, and shower. The Residence will take to the skies in late December when Etihad begins flying its first of 10 A380s from the United Arab Emirates to London.
