You should know by now who Casey Neistat is. He brought the vlogging trend to a whole new level when he put out a new video every single day for almost two years straight. Now, vlogging wasn't something the world hadn't seen before, but Casey is a filmmaker. An artist. His edits were something refreshing for the eye and the consistency of posting content DAILY is how he made a huge jump in his subscriber count. Everything from daily trips around NYC, to tech reviews, to traveling to different parts of the world, Casey captured it all on his camera(s) every single day. He now sits just shy of 11.3 MILLION subscribers on Youtube and is hailed, at least by me, as one of the most influential Youtubers ever. Come for the filmmaking and the honesty and the comedy, but stay for the honesty. The reason I fell in love with Casey's channel (and why I've fallen out of love with several other influencers), is Casey keeps it real, always. He gets a BUNCH of free stuff/experiences/etc to review, but that doesn't mean he always gives the product a platform to profit. If he doesn't like something, he lets you know. Which brings us to this video, Casey was given this trip for free, he thanks the airline several times in the video, and while it's cool to watch, he keeps it real. He looks into every single component of what the ticket gets you, he tries out everything there is to try within the confines of the cabin, and most importantly he know the price (basically). However, he doesn't FREAK OUT and say thing like "THIS IS THE BEST AIRLINE EVER OMG YOU HAVE TO TRY IT USE MY CODE FOR 10% YOUR NEXT FLIGHT, BLAH BLAH BLAH" like many other "famous" reviewers would. He keeps it real. Is it cool? Sure. Is it worth the price of a new car? Absolutely not. Thank you, Casey, for your continued honesty and awesome edits. Fan for life over here.
Man, I wish I had this kind of play money... I'll be honest, I've never heard of Etihad Airlines before this video. Probably because I have zero desire to travel to Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Mumbai or places of that nature. More power to you if you do, it's just not for me. However, I might change my tune if I had "the cost of a new Toyota" to just throw away on a flight for this experience. Where else are you going to shower at 40,000 feet? Your ticket includes a four course meal service, private butlers, THREE rooms, two fully reclining seats, A whole ass bed, a ten minute shower, noise cancelling headphones, TWO tvs and, what looks like, a few changes of clothes for your flight. The absolute height of luxury in the sky. I won't ever see the inside of one of those things and even if I did have that cash, I doubt I'd spend it on that. It's basically paying 30k for less than one night in a hotel...not worth it. But maybe have some fun if you win this Million Dollar Holiday that's running on Big95.5 right now. - @Traceahamilton
