Back when Etihad used to fly the A380 to Mumbai, and also back when the electronic travel restrictions were in place. Oh, it wasn't a fun time....

But anyway, Etihad's flagship A380 on the flagship route, JFK-AUH: http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1389087

And a short & sweet flight on the A380 across the Arabian Sea: http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1390381

Sir, I must say that I had left this TR aside, since I had wanted to read it at leisure, especially for the JFK-AUH leg, since I have seen JFK T4 at almost exactly this time of the day, while waiting for AI 102 to DEL, AI's once flagship flight, and JFK of course, was THE traditional entry point to the USA. While I read your response on WhatsApp as to what happened to your photographs, your vivid descriptions (and delightful video TR) more than made up for the lack of pictures. Thank you for the description of the Bennett Field: it was in 2017 (almost exactly a month after your journey), that I would be in Vilnius (Lithuania), and see the monument in honour of Darius and Girenas, who had taken off from exactly this field.
Vodka with Mango juice? Hmm...I've never tried this. This may be a personal opinion, but I like Vodka with citrus juices more.
The mixed food offerings would be of concern to me as well!
I enjoyed the comparisons of the second A388 flight with the first one (yes, that included the food as well!).
Thank you for two lovely TRs!
Cheers, Sumantra.

Great TR. I really enjoyed the video TR. Two consecutive flights on the A380, awesome! Going by your TR, Etihad seems to have a great product on their A380s, even in economy! Keep up the 4K videos, they look awesome!


On a side note, how do you still have the old version of the FR24 app? The older one is so much better than the latest version that they have.
