Etihad Airways wants to double its fleet in size and grow the network in the next seven years. But two-thirds of the expansion will come from increasing/doubling frequencies to existing destinations and one-third from new routes.

CEO Antonoaldo Neves shared updates with media on board on his Boeing 787-9 on static display at the Dubai Airshow. The aircraft features the new Business Class that has been on its Airbus A350-1000s for some time but is now on the Dreamliner. So new, that the aircraft hadn’t been delivered yet as Etihad waited for the final certification of the new cabin.
