ABU Dhabi-based Eti­had Air­ways is now fly­ing its two-class B787-9 Dream­liner to Seoul, re­plac­ing the A340-600 that pre­vi­ously flew the route.

For pre­mium trav­ellers, this un­for­tu­nately means the loss of the air­line’s first class op­tion on the daily route.

Eti­had con­fig­ures its Dream­lin­ers with 28 Busi­ness Stu­dios and 271 Econ­omy Smart seats, com­pared with the eight first class and 32 busi­ness class seats that the A340 fea­tured.

It’s not all bad news though, as the B787-9 Dream­liner’s Busi­ness Stu­dios do of­fer cer­tain perks. The fully flat leather seats all have di­rect aisle ac­cess, of­fer up to 80.5 inches (204cm) in length and fea­ture in-seat mas­sage and cush­ion-con­trol set­tings. Busi­ness class on the Seoul route also fea­tures the as­sis­tance of a ded­i­cated food and bev­er­age man­ager, while mo­bile and wifi con­nec­tiv­ity are also avail­able. eti­had.com
