Qatar 2020: Etihad Airways Releases New Comedy Film


As football fans all over the globe prepare to fly to Qatar for the biggest tournament of the year, Etihad Airways released a new comedy film featuring some famous football supporters, and a mystery VIP, on a flight to Doha.


Khabib Nurmagomedov, the longest reigning, and undefeated UFC Lightweight Champion before his retirement, is a huge football fan. He and his good friend, Dutch footballing genius Clarence Seedorf, four-time UEFA Champions League winner and the only player to have won the tournament with three different clubs, joined a very special guest to film the video on flight EY399 from Abu Dhabi to Doha.


From 20 November, the day before the footballing action starts in Qatar, the UAE’s national airline Etihad Airways is increasing capacity to six flights a day, on this 1 hour and 5-minute route.


The 70 second Etihad video features the two sports stars in Business class, being upstaged by the mystery celebrity who, much to their surprise, is attracting more attention from the other passengers than they are.


As the film continues, Khabib and Clarence’s intrigue builds as they speculate about who this VIP could be. Their attempts to get a casual look at the celebrity repeatedly fail.


Finally, they decide to take direct action to uncover the identity of the guest, but they are left speechless when the football-loving frequent flyer is revealed.


The audience also only discovers the identity of the mystery VIP, when he’s revealed to Khabib and Clarence at the end of the film.


Etihad, the Environmental Airline of the Year in the Airline Excellence Awards 2022, welcomes all football fans and is hoping to help visitors to discover more about the UAE and this exciting region.
