The airline expects to serve more than 50,000 Christmas dinners on board over the three-day holiday period. The menu includes roast turkey roulade, chestnut & thyme stuffing, herb & garlic chat potato, green beans, pumpkin with cranberry sauce and is followed by gingerbread cheesecake with berries and chocolate garnish, a Christmas yule log with redcurrant, or warm Christmas pudding with custard and berries.

Gingerbread lattes will also be available for guests looking to add some festive cheer to their beverage selection.

Etihad’s E-BOX entertainment will feature a dedicated ‘Holiday Movies’ channel with a selection of festive movies to enjoy on board throughout December. Holiday favourites such as Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas, A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish, The Holiday Dating Guide and New Year's Eve will feature among a selection of hundreds of movies and programmes.

Etihad’s Business and First class Lounges at the new Terminal A at Abu Dhabi International Airport will also feature a merry menu as well as a range of themed mocktails and cocktails such as ‘Christmas Baubles’, ‘Glogg’s on Ice’ and a ‘Gingerbread Espresso Martini’.
