Flights will leave daily from Abu Dhabi at 8:45 a.m. arriving in Los Angeles at 2:15 p.m. on the same day, while flights departing Los Angeles will leave at 4:15 p.m. and arrive in Abu Dhabi at 7:35 p.m. the next day.

With the new flight, Etihad will launch a 3-cabin Boeing 777-200LR, which can hold 237 passengers in eight Diamond First Class suites; 40 Pearl Business Class flatbed seats; and 189 Coral Economy Class seats.
