Although I don't work for Etihad nor does my husband, there is a pilot's wife who is in Real Estate in Al Ain and if you have a choice of housing, definitely consider Al Ain vs AD. It is about a 1.5 hour drive to the airport and there are other crews living here, both flight deck and cabin. You get a whole lot more home for the housing allowance they provide you. Education is alot less expensive and the quality of life for a family is extremely pleasant as it is family focused. There is so many things to do, clubs to join, sports to enjoy. She has some nice properties available that are close to schools and easy access to the road to Abu Dhabi. Without advertising her website, as its probably not allowed, you can google villas plus Al Ain and look for Al Ain Villafinder. She doesn't charge the standard 5% commission to crew members ( mods, that should be reason enough to keep this post) Best of luck and welcome to the UAE. It's crazy, but we somehow fit right in
