LH was on strike during that week, so they had time to check their aircrafts - pretend to work, right? Luckily I chose EY over LH

Seat pitch - which was very very good! Overall the seat was very comfortable.
When we reached cruising altitude the cabin crew personal begun with dinner service
I took "Lamb mansaf" which was very good - first time lamb by my own choice
The flight was very unspectacular. There were some bumps over Turkey and entering Iran, but overall very very smooth and nothing to mention. I killed the time with reading and listening to music.
About 1.5h before landing a light snack was served - a muffin. Look, someone woke up and tried to steal my muffin :p
After the snack, we started to descend for landing @ AUH
And there it is. Yas Marina Circuit - the main reason for the trip.

We landed a few minutes before scheduled arrival and taxied to a remote stand. The best traffic on earth - airplanes wherever you look Lots of work is going on @ AUH - unbelievable
It took some time to get out of the A330. So I watched the sun to rise up. Good morning and welcome to Abu Dhabi!
2016 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Last but not least, here are a few pictures from the weekend @ the Yas Marina Circuit.

Look out A380 crossing :)
Finally after 2h of racing - Nico Rosberg was World Champion Everything went perfect!
And it continued like that. For the return flight an Airbus A340-600 was scheduled and I got one. More on that in the 2nd part. That was going to be my first ever A340-600 flight. I was on an A340-500 a few years back, when I flew with Emirates via DXB to SEZ (Seychelles International Airport).
Cabin crew 8.0
Munich - MUC
Abu Dhabi - AUH
Well what should I say? It was my first time with Etihad and I read a lot of reports here. EY fulfilled my expectations. The service was very good, the food was great and I don't know, I have nothing to criticize about.
The only thing that was disappointing was the immigration @ AUH. It took almost 1h! Yes, there were a lot of people but when I compare it with DXB - that is a huge difference.
