Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways gets its first A380, outfitted with lux suite, bathroom with shower

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.
