Sarah Bush, Director of The Travel Authority Group, hit the skies again recently, flying long-haul from Sydney with Etihad Airways.
This trip enabled Sarah to experience a few things for the first time. Those being a first visit to The House lounge at Sydney Airport, and a first time flying during Ramadan.
Observed by Muslims, Ramadan is a month of fasting, prayer and reflection. Sarah wondered how flying during Ramadan might influence the service offered by a Middle-Eastern carrier.
Very little, it turns out.
“Save for a special Ramadan offering on the in-flight menu, you wouldn’t even know. Those not fasting enjoyed the full service of F&B on the ground and in the air”, reports Sarah.
Ramadan continues until 04 June, 2019.
On board, Sarah found the hardware comfortable and practical.
“Mine was a good, comfortable business class seat with decent size TV, a nice little amenity pack, and plenty of storage for books, glasses, laptop and shoes”, says Sarah.
And The House lounge?
“The House is a lovely space of tranquility. There’s loads of casual seating and a beautiful little restaurant with proper tables, cutlery and napkins, and a good snack menu served directly to you by very friendly and welcoming staff”, Sarah reports.
The House is a new lounge brand launched by the airline in collaboration with No1 Lounges to create a ‘stylish and contemporary airport lounge experience in keeping with Etihad’s design and guest experience philosophy.’
Sarah flew on an Etihad Boeing 777-300ER, and was seated in seat 10C.
