This was was my second Etihad flight that day – we had just come off the flight from Dublin.

Since the flight from Dublin had been 45 minutes late we made our way quickly through the airport (security was so lax it took just seconds thankfully and arrived at boarding time at the gate.

It had just started and we were one of the first people to board. However all 3 classes were apparently sold out that day. Boarding would drag on and 30 minutes part the original departure time we were still waiting for connecting passengers and to offload their bags.

Flight attendants would come through with drinks a few times and were jovial despite the late hour.

This aircraft was one of the Jet Airways leases that Etihad operates (it keeps phasing them out now though).

I really liked the seat – it was similar to the Virgin Atlantic (Review) herringbone setup. It was a bit narrow (but much wider than Cathay Pacific (Review) setup on the A330).

The TV screen was close enough to actually see something and the whole seat was in a great condition. For a 3 hour flight the space felt fine – but I’d rather not fly 15 hours in it.

The dinner that followed (it was almost midnight local time now) was really good. It took quite long to come out as everyone seemed to participate. My dessert came by 2 hours after takeoff.

By then time food was done we were almost ready to descend into New Delhi. The airport is pretty new now and looks more like Hong Kong than its Indian brethren. The lines for e-visa were long though the Business Class line for people with an existing visa was barely a few minutes.

3.5 / 5 stars
