After the long wait Etihad have opened their new first class lounge.

The lounge has been a talking point for some time now. Before this lounge they used a roped off area of the premium lounge which wasn’t any different to the business class area’s. The lounge was originally supposed to open on May 1st but the construction hadn’t been finished at that time and was delayed.

The lounge has some fantastic new additions which will be loved by a variety of passengers. The new areas include a Cigar Bar, A full gym, Relax and recline room, and a play room. A Bar, dinning area, six senses spa, style and shave and residence room which were in the original lounge have been also been included.

At this time these are the only photos available and are all property of Etihad Airways.

This lounge also has some interesting and very unique features such as a clothes pressing service similar to the arrivals lounge and a concierge service.

Basic features like Showers, Prayer rooms and a Tv rooms are available.

The entry requirements for the lounge are as follows:

First Class guests, Etihad Guest Platinum and Etihad Airways Partners Platinum guests, and those staying in The Residence onboard its Airbus A380 fleet.

I will be in the lounge on Friday and I will be able to give a full comprehensive review. I am extremely excited to visit and am very happy with what the lounge looks like from these photos.

Do you think this could be the new best lounge in the world?
