Casey Neistat Takes Us Onboard Etihad’s ‘The Residence’

If a private jet across the ditch – or across the globe – is only just out of your reach, then Etihad’s ‘The Residence’ has to be the next best option.

So just how much are we talking here? A round-trip flight from Sydney to Abu Dhabi will cost a touch over $40,000 for one person. Right, so, roughly the same price as a new Toyota RAV4… 

Okay, well, what might you get in ‘The Residence’ that justifies such a figure? An apartment in the sky, essentially. A two-person ‘living room’ area has a sofa-length seat with huge storage containers, a TV, refrigerator, and an insane amount of legroom. Walk down the ‘hallway’ and you can get to the bathroom, complete with a private shower, and then a bedroom. A completely private bedroom… we know what you’re thinking – stop it.



Everyone’s favourite YouTuber, Casey Neistat, was lucky enough to experience the flight from Abu Dhabi to New York, and it’s about as outrageous as you think it is.

P.S. A subtle hint to Etihad, if you’re looking to ‘gift’ any more flights, my DM’s are always open.
