Etihad hat neue Ideen gehabt …

Etihad betreibt seit einiger Zeit gröberes Cost Cutting. Es gibt zwar neuerdings Kaviar auf manchen First Strecken (KAVIAR nun auch in der Etihad First), aber manche Features sind weg. Einige Dinge werden auch jetzt meistbietend verkauft.

Über die Etihad Aktionen habe ich schon häufiger berichtet:
Etihad COST CUTTING: Nix Chauffeur mit Meilenticket (First oder Business)
Etihad Cost Cutting: Friseur in den Lounges in Abu Dhabi ZU
Etihad reduziert die Freigepäckgrenzen für First und Business drastisch!
Bei Etihad wird jetzt alles verkauft: Pyjama, Amenity Kit, The Residence Lounge! Alles muss raus!
Keine Pyjama mehr in der Etihad Business
Keine Business oder First Lounge in Abu Dhabi für Statuskunden mit Etihad Partner Flug
Etihad “verbessert” Etihad Guest – Es wird schlechter!
Keine Amenity Kits mehr in der Etihad Business?
Kein kostenloses Rasierservice in der Etihad Arrivals Lounge mehr
Etihad schließt den Spa in der Lounge in London
Etihad beschneidet den Chauffeur Service drastisch!
Review: Etihad First Lounge Abu Dhabi

Nun hat man bei Etihad scheinbar die Eco entdeckt.

Was es da nicht alles für Sitzplatzreservierungen gibt. Erst unter 24 Stunden kann man sich dann ohne Aufpreis den gewünschten Platz in der Eco sichern.

Eine ganze Reihe zu sichern hört sich eigentlich interessant an. Die Bedingungen der Reservierung von bis zu drei freien Nebensitzen in der Eco:
