Etihad reducing A380 capacity on CDG route?
Curious if anyone has insight into this. It appears after much fanfare last year about Etihad going with an A380 year-round on their 2 AUH-CDG routes, they are apparently going back to a 77W on the daytime flight. From October 15, 2019 through December 3, 2019, the Etihad website is showing a 77W for the daytime flight (AUH-CDG 09:15-14:05 / CDG-AUH 21:55-06:45+1). This appears to be a very recent change, as Google Flights and even partner award booking sites (which I feel is the bigger issue given the difference in A380 vs 77W first class award experience) still show the A380 on that route. I would think that Etihad’s website should be viewed as the determining factor regarding which plane they are flying, but not sure what route they would rotate the A380 into during this time or if this is an error on their backend. Any thoughts?
It could be an error but I’d assume that the EY website is correct. You might want to call in if that is the deciding factor though a plane change is always possible.
