The AusBT excellent reviews on Etihad business and first class products both mentioned uncomfortably high cabin temperatures - can anyone share their experiences on this issue?

I haven't flown them yet, however I have had two friends travel with Etihad, one business and the other economy and both had no issues. My friend who flew business has traveled extensively on many different business products and found Etihad up there with the best. Looking forward to finding out myself sometime soon.

I have flown them to Europe on several occasions and have found the cabin temp to be quite warm each time, but then again I much prefer cooler climes... Anyway, as someone who prefers to change into sleeping gear for long haul overnight flights, I've just taken a tshirt and loose cotton boxer shorts onboard to wear when sleeping on Etihad.

I flew AUH-BNE in Business and found it cool enough to wear pj's and sleep with a blanket. That was in May, but I found it varries.

Have flown MEL to Europe and back twice with Etihad and found the temperature fine on all flights (in Business and First). I don't like to be hot so always take shorts, a T-shirt and thongs (don't like using the facilities in bare feet!) to wear on the plane and this way I keep cool. Best way I have found is to have bare fee when seated as the floor is usually cool/cold.
