Etihad pulls A380 off Mumbai route, deploys additional to Paris

A380 service to Mumbai began in May last year

Less than a year after deploying its top of the line A380 to Mumbai, Etihad has announced it is pulling the aircraft off the route from 1 July.

The airline has said the change is part of “seasonal adjustments.” However the Mumbai Mirror reported last month that the move came after poor demand for its premium cabin seats.

Etihad’s A380 service to Paris, among the carrier’s busiest and best performing routes,” according to CEO Peter Baumgartner, also begins on July 1 until October 28.
