Etihad reduces Melbourne and suspends Venice

Etihad Airways has officially announced that as part of its Right Size Right Shape strategy, it shall be reducing capacity to Melbourne from the on set of the IATA Winter 2017 season.

Currently, EY operates a double daily nonstop AUH-MEL service using an A380 + B77W each respectively. However effective 30OCT, capacity is reduced by -24% as it will be utilizing a daily B789 + daily B77W each respectively on this route.

In addition to the above, it has confirmed the suspension of its AUH-VCE (Venice) from 29OCT17 onwards as it is likely to be converted into a summer seasonal service or suspended outright (which is better as there is no real need to fly there for EY)
