Last time I was almost kicked out of the Etihad Business Class Lounge Abu Dhabi for taking picture as part of my Middle East trip.

This time I hid my DSLR and used my iPhone for pictures to document any changes since then.

The Etihad Business Class Lounge Abu Dhabi is located opposite to Gate 35. There is another Etihad Business Class Lounge Abu Dhabi in Terminal 1.

The breakfast buffet has largely stayed the same. The spread is above most lounge with some premium options like cheese and smoked salmon and mackerel. The espresso bar is still in service which is something I really appreciated.

The lounge was filled to capacity at around 7.45 AM given the many Etihad flight departures that was no surprise. The Internet was completely down when I arrived and would only become online once most people left about 30 minutes later. This always amazes me that someone plans for a lounge – installs a number of seats but never adjusts the Internet infrastructure for the lounge users.

I only had about 45 minutes since Etihad decided to start boarding almost an hour out for the bus gates. I was the last person on the bus – 35 minutes before departure! Needless to say that we did not get a slot for immediate departure and waited 15 minutes after our scheduled departure time for a slot. That’s almost an hour on a hot plane – oh well.

3 / 5 stars
