Etihad Airways announced on Tuesday that it will deploy a Boeing 787 Dreamliner on one of its twice-daily scheduled flights between Abu Dhabi and Riyadh from October 30.
The upgrade from a single aisle Airbus A321 aircraft will cater to strong demand to and from the capital of the Gulf kingdom, the airline said in a statement.
Together with the other daily Riyadh service operated by a Boeing 777, Etihad Airways will have more than 8,700 weekly seats on the route, it added.
Flight EY317 will be operated with a B787 and will offer 299 seats, configured in two classes with 28 seats in Business and 271 in Economy. More info
