Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Experience

I traveled to Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways for the Formula 1 Auto race.  From the moment I got the plane I knew this was going to be an experience of a lifetime.

Getting was half the fun.  Exceptional Service is an integral part of the Etihad precinct.   I was greeted by a friendly smile boarding the plane that directed to my Business Class Seat. The smile was special but for all travelers.  Business Class on Etihad’s A330’s use subtle colors with upholstered and leather fabrics.   The interior is based on relaxing complete with a starry ceiling.

I was situated in the middle aisle with plenty of leg room.  The stewardess offered a glass of Champagne up my seating, PERFECT!   After a smooth take off towards Abu Dhabi I was served a complete 3 course meal. My remaining time on the flight was spent watching a feature film from the inflight selection, then a brief nap before breakfast.

Landing at the bustling Abu Dhabi International Airport I was impressed by the construction cranes for the new terminal. After going through passport control I enjoyed a fresh orange juice in the premium class lounge quipped with a shower, barber and other services.

Formula 1 Abu Dhabi is a world famous event with the top racing teams competing for the trophy.  Thrilling, exciting, adrenaline pumping are words I would use to describe the race.   There is no better place to have watch Formula 1 than the YAS Marina, a playground for the well to do viewing the race from their Yachts with endless streams of music flowing and Champagne refills.  It was all on the over the top fun side whether it was dancing girls or DJ battles competing to see who would out do the other.

Congratulations to Nico Rosberg from Team Mercedes for winning the Formula 1 Cup.
