Abu Dhabi's national carrier, Etihad, has showcased the arrival of its first Airbus A380, outfitted with "the only three-room suite in the sky."

The A380 will operate daily to London Heathrow starting Dec. 27 and features "The Residence by Etihad", a three-room suite with a living room, private bathroom with shower and a bedroom, as well as a dedicated butler. The 11.6 square meter (125 square foot) cabin is for single or double occupancy.

The fast-growing Gulf carrier also showcased Thursday its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which will begin flying to Dusseldorf, Germany, on Feb. 1.

It will offer high-end travelers a suite with a chilled mini-bar and seats that can be joined to create a double bed.
