Mideast airline Etihad Airways, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, is now offering luxury suites that rival some of the most high-end real estate on the ground. And butler service is available.

The new Etihad upper-deck luxury suite features a private bedroom, closed-off bathroom, and even the services of a butler, according to The Associated Press.

"This is a top-end market. There is demand here," Etihad chief executive James Hogan said in a statement. "Maybe European airlines don't make money on first [class] but we do, and we wouldn't have devised this product if we didn’t believe we could make a return."



Etihad Airways unveiled the luxury suites on Sunday along with the new interior for its fleet of Airbus A380s and Boeing 787s. The aircrafts showcase 11-inch seatback televisions in economy, a lobby complete with a leather couch and a bar, and even a curtained-off prayer area for Muslim passengers.
