Catch Rhys on the Simple Flying podcast
Yesterday Rhys recorded an edition of the Simple Flying podcast to discuss his trip to Abu Dhabi on the inaugural A380. You can listen to it here – it is 25 minutes long.
It is worth a listen if you want to hear a bit more of the background to the event and Rhys and Tom’s impressions from the flights.
If you haven’t already, you can also read Rhys’ article from the day here as well as a review of the Etihad Lounge in London here. We will be publishing a review of Etihad’s A380 business class next week.
