Welcome to a new flight report: from Paris to Abu Dhabi, In this flight I was also was expecting to fly a Boeing 777-300ER and I booked a very good seat, but 2 month before the flight Etihad told me that the aircraft changed to an Airbus A340-600, unfortunately, the window view wasn't as good as I wanted. I will also be including a french version of this Flight Report, you can find it in this link below:http://flight-report.com/en/report/18255/Etihad-Airways-EY38-Paris-CDG-Abu-Dhabi-AUH
The Taxi picks me up at 5:30PM (quite early for a flight at 10:00PM) but I wanted to enjoy as much as possible the duty free since I have access to 2 terminals and going around spotting some birds. We arrive at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport at 6:20PM and we find the Emirates Check-in Counters 12 very crowded, we go the Etihad Check-in counters and find the economy counters tail not very corwded comparing to the Emirates one. . Checking-in Terminal 2C Counters 14 at 6:30PM:
I had quite a lot of time to kill before boarding, I decided to go around Terminal 2A and Terminal 2C, to check-out their duty free and spot some planes:
After all of that plane spotting, it is now time to see our plane:
Our gate was A50/A51 just next to the building linking Terminal 2A and 2C
Safety video starts up at push-back:
We take-off Paris CDG Airport at 10:21PM
Before the dinner services comes, Etihad Airways served us wipes
My meal comes up first, I've requested a special meal : Glulten Free Meal
Etihad Airways Economy Class Headphones, shame that they're the old ones ;(
Etihad Airways Economy Class Amenity Kit (only for an overnight flight)
Since the seat next to me was empty, I could entertain myself with 2 IFEs :P
Watching some comedy shows like Brooklyn nine-nine, etc. while keeping track of where are we with maps
Dawn above Iran
Took a little nap throughout the sunrise, I woke up while descending to Abu Dhabi
Landed safely 26 minutes early (6:39AM):
The Landing video
What a line of Etihad Airways birds over there
We are leaving our aircraft (A6-EHH).

ARRIVAL PRCESS IN THE AIRPORT
After doing the long walk in the hallway, we find the passport control crowded with people coming from the world, fortunnately, I can use my passport with the E-gate service to avoid the crowd. After security pass we got the luggage area we find luggages coming from everywhere in the world even in our belt, my luggage got delivered a little bit later that I thought, after that we go to the arrivals halls and get an Airport Taxi around 7:30AM.
Thank you for reading and See you in the next flight report
Paris - CDG
Abu Dhabi - AUH
It was a great flight with EY again
The seat was confortable
The IFE systems were a little bit slow and they had old remotes but had many movies show to watch.
The dinner even though I requested a Gluten-Free meal, it was not bad.
The cabin crew were really nice
Overall rating for this flight + 2 airports: 7.6/10
