This is the first time, i use Etihad airlines...
And, it is my first time i transit at Abu Dhabi
country city as well.
I feel good at this travelling - more comfortable and relaxing compare to previous trip.
Abu Dhabi is city quite close to Dubai.
Its first expression for me, it is quite well planning city.
Abu Dhabi city.
Why i say that this trip is more comfortable and not so tiring.
First, when i know that i have to transit overnight at Abu Dhabi airport from 11pm to 8am.
I make a request from Etihad airline that i want a hotel to rest.
Finally, i manage to get a free bedroom provided - Airport Hotel.
(To claim the free hotel,
First, you need to request from airlines agent when buy the ticket;
second, you need to claim the coupon at the airlines service counter)
It is not easy to get, it is depend on available bedroom in airtport Hotel.
Feel lucky that i manage to get one free bedroom which cost 185 USD.
It is quite good hotel.
I can found a least more than 5 power sockets in a single room.
( But, not internet provided :( )
About the Abu Dhabi airport,
I will give a rating around 8/10.
There are a lot facilities allows passengers kill their time.
You can play games - and online at their provided computers.
(Again, there is not any accessible wifi provided :( )
I can say everything is free if you have transit time longer than 7-8 hours.
They provided you free breakfast as well.
The location to have your breakfast is located at Terminal 3 where you need go through security check.
With at breakfast coupon, you can order any food from any restaurant at Terminal 3.
This is the breakfast i took.
(mmm... ok la)
Let's talking about the toilet i visit in the airport.
It is the biggest toilet i visit - around 20+ toilets room.
(but, not all the toilet top up with paper roll)
About the food of Etihad airlines,
It is quite enjoyable and taste good to me.
And, it is the first that i experience eating ice cream on the plane.
Experience yourself - wish you like it.
(P/s: don't misunderstanding, i am not given money to promote this airlines or director of the airlines)
(This is my own personal experience)
