I continue to discover behind the scenes at Addis Ababa Airport on Ethiopian Airlines operations. There are 2 peaks every day, one in the morning and one in the evening with many arrivals and departures connecting at Addis Ababa. Check out the latest Ethiopian Airlines Business Class lounge in Addis Ababa.
I boarded a new Ethiopian Airlines A350-900 to Cape Town, it has a new Business Class in 1-2-1 staggered layout. The pilot showed the A350 cockpit and explained the high-altitude operation at Addis Ababa and its limitation on takeoff weight.
Flight time to Cape Town is 6 hours from Addis Ababa, flying through Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Botswana before reaching South Africa. During the flight, traditional Ethiopian cuisine is served with injera bread. Discover more about Ethiopian Airlines' service and flight operation on the A350 in my video.
