Is time back to Hong Kong. I was took ET609 to HKG, however the flight was delayed for 2 hrs due
to bad weather in Hong Kong. About 2230 (Seoul time)start on board. The plane of the flight is ET-ALJ.
It is a nice plane indeed.

ET609 was a nice flight, however the flight was delayed for 2 hours. But that is fine.
Because the crew is a passion team and let us feel like at home. The meal was nice and full.
Also, it is a nice moment enjoy a bottle of wine. The unforgettable thing is the crew let
me enjoy a piece of orange. It would not appear is the full load flight. It was a touching moment
on ET609.
After this flight, I will travel on ET if I have a choice.

    very nice trip report and pictures. I am just curious as to why you gave them poor marks for on-time performance when you indicated a weather delay? Surely that would not be their fault?

    Wow.. I flew Ethiopian last year on ICN-HKK-ADD-JNB. It is better to stop in Hong Kong, because the flight between HKG and ADD is just a hell. Theft, rude people.. This line is actually very popular among chinese workers in Africa. One of the few cheap direct flight from China to Africa, and good connection network in ADD.
    I would have liked to try their B767 once, but now they operate the Dreamliner on this route.

      I couldn't agree with you more. ET is a fastest way connect from China And Africa.
      That's why a lot of Chinese worker will use ET to Africa instead of Chinese Airlines.
      B767 is really nice plane, if you can on board in ET-ALJ, ET-ALO and ET-ALP
      You must try to seat in row 30. Because there a lot of leg room just like Business Class.
      However, B767 will be retire in future. It will instead by A350.
