    ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Talk about some serious legroom.
    Etihad Airways, a fast-growing Mideast carrier, laid out plans Sunday to offer passengers who find first-class seats a bit too tight a miniature suite featuring a closed-off bedroom, private bathroom and a dedicated butler.
    It is the latest salvo in the worldwide battle among airlines for well-heeled customers. Their willingness to spend big on premium seats can make a big difference to an airline's bottom line.


    Wow, those look nice. Why even return to the ground?

    Not sure how it would finally help the airline's bottom line, but it may be a serious improvement for some people's bottoms if they can afford it. Probably an improvement over an E145 though with much better legroom.
