Schedules for Etihad’s Abu Dhabi – Washington service, commencing on 31st March 2013, have been announced and reservations are now open. Timings are:

EY131 Abu Dhabi 1000 – Washington Dulles 1700

EY130 Washington Dulles 2230 – Abu Dhabi 2000+1

Flights will be operated by Airbus A340-500s.

It therefore appears that the A340-500 fleet will remain and will not be sold to Conviasa of Venezuela.
