The first video from this collaboration features Katrina Kaif aboard Etihad's newest A350 aircraft, offering a cinematic journey that reflects the essence of Etihad's commitment to excellence. The film showcases exclusive Armani-Casa dining wear, luxurious bedding, and complimentary in-flight Wi-Fly service. It can be viewed on Etihad and Katrina's social media channels.
