Abu Dhabi, Oct 30 (IBNS): Guests travelling from New York to Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, were treated to a surprise celebration of Diwali ahead of this weekend’s Hindu festival of lights.

Travelling on one of the airline’s flagship Airbus A380s, they were given specially designed lanterns to mark the festival that this year falls on 30 October. As lights in First, Business and Economy were dimmed, guests of all ages raised their glowing lanterns transforming the cabins into a sea of glimmering lights to celebrate Diwali in the sky. Traditional Indian desserts such as jalebi and barfi prepared by Etihad Airways’ catering team were served onboard.
