أهلا و سهلا, Selam and Hello, dear readers,

Paris it is, just for the very swift way:*

Thanx once more:

Friday, 06.12.2013

CDG (Aéroport Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle)
STR (Flughafen Stuttgart)

Service AF 1408 operated by Air France
Scheduled:  07.40  //  08.55

For T2F, with a shorty security check also in an extra area
and the necessary view for the screen

 photo ETHIOPIA2013245_zpsd4716199.jpg
A very swift visit to the lounge is possible till they call for boarding from F30.
This is a mileage ticket at 35.00 Euros taxes, fees and 10000 miles.
07.40 am, "AirFrance" is ontime, no duration info and departure from "Two-Six-Right", like arrivals at 7 cloudy degrees.
Leaving the "Aéroport Roissy Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle".
This is F-GUGJ, the A318 like on schedule and one more without an individual name.
Just by surprise, new to the log and leg no. 21 on type.
In the air with AF since 14.10.2005, 18 examples are in the fleet and there are some interesting stories to follow:

 photo ETHIOPIA2013248_zpsf0161553.jpg
Cockpit crew is from France. The "Capitaine" with a short welcome after boarding in an experienced style.
No route or flightlevel info.
Stunning views above Paris
 photo ETHIOPIA2013249_zpsf6d66d1b.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013250_zps98897cc4.jpg
Cabin crew is one middle aged male, nice and two women, both elder, one ok, the other nice and attentive.
The legroom and the safety card
 photo ETHIOPIA2013251_zps15a8765f.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013252_zps2cf44767.jpg
The magazine and some details with the mixed blue red clean so far fabric seats, but not that impressive legroom.
The load is 60% only, 19A and three for me, late boarding helps once again
 photo ETHIOPIA2013253_zpsc02f77b1.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013254_zpsfed42ff2.jpg
Service is a brioche and free drinks with the dark cabin
 photo ETHIOPIA2013255_zps61ccbae6.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013257_zpsd31705d2.jpg
Touchdown at "Two-Five", the "Flughafen Stuttgart" it is once more, 08.45 am, ten minutes ahead to schedule and 3 partly cloudy degrees
 photo ETHIOPIA2013258_zps6ead082e.jpg
The car is once again surprised to see me as scheduled this early time of the day.
There is no resistant system these days, isn´t it?.
No, it isn´t!.

Here are the conclusions:

1.)Ethiopian FRA-ADD: Nice crew and really comfy service.
2.)Ethiopian ADD-CDG: A relaxed night in dreamland on the classic.
3.)Air France CDG-STR: Calm and quiet for the homebase.

And also when it´s December right now there is one more, but this time the final, ride in 2013 to go:

Dehna hunu,
take care.

أهلا و سهلا, Selam and Hello, dear readers,

I´am in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia, an amazing place, but I should fly again right now:*

Thanx once again to:

Thursday, 05.12.2013

ADD (Addis Ababa Bole International Airport)
CDG (Aéroport Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle)

Service ET 704 operated by Ethiopian Airlines
Scheduled:  23.55  //  05.45

Lots of people around. Night curfew?. Noise restrictions?. For sure not here in Ethiopia!

 photo ETHIOPIA2013202_zps75c8769a.jpg
Addis works also with the security at the entrance system.
Me and the bag checked the relaxed style and in the terminal soon thereafter
 photo ETHIOPIA2013203_zpsd2c032ad.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013204_zpsa9af5815.jpg
Not that long to wait at the counter, a nice young Ethiopian woman at work.
This time the flight is well loaded, but the last row two seater is open and some talking later she offered the window and also blocked the aisle. Really well done service here in Addis.
Some thirty minutes at passport check and security with the usual scenes.
Senior travellers cutting the queue with a short connection,
such a short one like it later turns out when the young guy at the front asked about, with pax in the queue on earlier flights. Well, it´s the rule also in Ethiopia, seniors and trust me, not the african Seniors, no these are the European seniors, always first.
Further for a view to the screen

 photo ETHIOPIA2013205_zps344a2ad9.jpg
Paris and onwards for BRU looks like ok.
And a 767, the classic one, is waiting at gate 2.
315.00 Euro´s is the fare here, fixed by, another one way booking.
I don´t use the lounge this time, it looks like packed with people standing around.
Well, gate 2, always interesting to follow baggage loaded to you´re plane and not that long thereafter unloaded again.
Some confusion later, sure this is Africa, the gate changed and it looks like we´re on the tech track.
Well again, there is an connection upcoming, one of these feasible examples during booking, on different tickets of course.
And when it comes closer it feels like the guy at the controls had a cup of the strong black stuff to much when he pressed the book it button!.
By bus right now and there is another 763 on the apron
 photo ETHIOPIA2013207_zpsd8832ee3.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013214_zpsabdbd208.jpg
So this is ET-ALP, another one without an individual name and the 763 like on schedule.
New to the log and leg no. 9 on type
 photo ETHIOPIA2013215_zps524bf467.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013216_zps7c979c94.jpg
13 examples are in the fleet and with a delivery date at 22.06.2005 this is the newest example

 photo ETHIOPIA2013219_zps089c20bd.jpg
This machine is also known here:

 photo ETHIOPIA2013221_zps46a030fc.jpg
Also by night, I like apron boarding!
 photo ETHIOPIA2013222_zps4679bebf.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013223_zpse7532ace.jpg
And especially around the big birds, you know!
 photo ETHIOPIA2013225_zpsf95e4351.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013226_zps341d5c2d.jpg
Bye now to "Addis Ababa Bole International Airport", 0.00 am it is, short after schedule, 7.20 hours by "Ethiopian"
and departure from the 4604 meters "Zero-Seven-Left" at 8 degrees and clear sky.
Cockpit crew, at least the "Captain" sounds english native, with a short welcome in an experienced style at the runway entrance. Nice and short again prior to descent.
Routing is Khartoum-South Eastern Egypt-North Eastern Lybia-Trapani-Ajaccio-Nice-Dijon at 34000 till 36000 feet.
My pleasure, you know!

 photo ETHIOPIA2013228_zpse8703b66.jpg
40 A/B for me.
And this is certainly a step back in time with the direct comparison to the 787 on the inbound.
The legroom is remarkable lower and the whole cabin looks like somewhat retro.
Here is the actual magazine
 photo ETHIOPIA2013229_zpsa317c2cc.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013230_zps1a6a0f7b.jpg
The load is 80%, locals and westerners well mixed.
The safety card and the cabin with the really well used fabric seats
 photo ETHIOPIA2013231_zpsbbea37b4.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013232_zps8938f42c.jpg
Not that really clean it is
 photo ETHIOPIA2013233_zps8cfb652d.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013234_zps75a6a459.jpg
Cabin crew serving my seat is a middle aged woman, large, slim, black hair, really nice.
Nice staff all around and HSN suits me well,
rice, tomato sauce and herbs
 photo ETHIOPIA2013235_zps4855a219.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013236_zps917f2978.jpg
Well, the short nights are calling discret, but also permanently till close to the "Aéroport Roissy Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle"
 photo ETHIOPIA2013237_zps3d987488.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013238_zpsc6f81834.jpg
Touchdown at the 4215 meters "Two-Six-Right", 05.45 am, perfectly ontime and 7 partly cloudy degrees.
Welcome again to good old Europe
 photo ETHIOPIA2013240_zpsf8f28e33.jpg
 photo ETHIOPIA2013243_zps2f095332.jpg
Immigration works swiftly and there is an intra terminal  shuttle on offer now.
One more leg to go, the one with the short connection!.

Take care.
