I flew on Etihad Airways new A350-1000 inaugural flight from Abu Dhabi to Paris on 31 March 2022. The Etihad A350-1000 has 44 Business Class suites and 327 economy class seats. A total of 5 A350-1000 will be entering service with Etihad this year.
There are the usual celebrations at the gate before takeoff, aviation enthusiasts and media were busy taking photos and videos of the new plane. The pilot gave the flight briefing and showed the latest touch screen technology on the A350-1000 cockpit display. Enjoy the views from the cockpit on takeoff.
After takeoff, I explored the Economy Class cabin. The first 5 rows in Economy have extra space as Economy Space. There are tablet holder and bluetooth enabled headset connection. I check out all the seat functions in the new Etihad Business Class suite. It has a sliding door to enhance privacy.
During the flight, I interviewed Etihad Aviation Group CEO Tony Douglas about the A350 operation and the future of the Etihad A380. The new Etihad A350-1000 will be deployed to Mumbai, Delhi, Jeddah, Cairo and Istanbul before entering long haul service to New York and Chicago in July.
I gave my verdict and recommendation on the Etihad A350 at the end of the video.

Guys, please see my video on Airbus A330 take off
I also like the a380
It was the emirates one
I wish they'd slap energy efficient engines on the A380 and keep it alive forever. Its the most wonderful and iconic airplane I've ever been in.
I really like to travel with Etihad airways.
Nice to see good old fashioned compass.
We’re really sad that there is no Emirati locals who were in this journey 🙁
Wow..apek mai lagi
Clearly Boeing has lost the race to Airbus.
You are now kind of airliners’ advertising man rather than a reviewer. We appreciate genuine videos , not ones paid by airlines.
From a passenger and customer satisfaction perspective , I’m just interested in the A380 return .
Beautiful aircraft sam
US flight route to Hawaii 99% old plane 737. pathetic. 350 -1000 beautiful plane
Hello, brother recently Nepal has inaugurated a new international airport Goutam buddha international airport pls make one video thanks you.
I believe today all major airlines have an auto bell to ring in their CRM when SamChui purchases a ticket with them so all the resources are put in order to make him an impeccable and pleasant experience. So the best pilots, best FAs and even ground assistants are directed to serve Chui's flight. The same shall apply to a few other aviation vloggers as well.
The bis class looks like an office with Low partition so supervisors can see who is gallivanting lol
You were pretty critical of a nice new plane like that, Sam. Especially after a free ride! Support to Etihad on the new A350-1000. Looking forward to a business ride on it soon.
