I flew Etihad to Bangkok. Having not flown Etihad before I was most impressed. I paid a nominal fee to blank out the seat next to me for the first leg. The service was on point. I especially enjoyed the flight attendants roaming routinely chanting instructions. Put your seat up, and the row numbers to board were some of my favourites.

I drifted in and out of consciousness having previously decided a deeper sleep for the second leg was preferable. I was soon marvelling at the galactic space station terminus that is Abu Dhabi international.

I slept a bit too heavily on the way to Bangkok. Loosing my right ear bud twice. The first time it was rescued by the French lady beside me. The second time I had to wait for everyone to get out of my aisle before I found it. Pro tip. The seat covers are attached with simple poppers, just like boats.

Stereo sound regained, my driver collected me and I checked into my stupendous accommodation for my time in Bangkok. The complex was opened last year.
