Qantas used to do this on occasion as well. They would offer a charter from SEA to SYD via SFO or LAX when they were taking delivery of a new plane. Fares were really low and even included return airfare through one of their normal west coast gateways.

The chief test pilot for the 767 fleet, Buzz Nelson I believe, just retired, and his last certification flight was on this Ethiopian plane a week or so ago, had it on the local news here in Seattle. Not sure if the plane is at BFI or PAE right now.
Would this plane be a replacement for the one lost in that hijacking near the Comoros islands a few years ago, or is it truly new to the fleet?

I saw this a/c on the flight line at PAE last week. It looked very nice in the Ethiopian colours. Incidentaly, the factory had only three a/c on the assembly line. A 767 for ANA, a 747-400F for China Air and a 777.

Good to see that the 763s for ET are rolling... DKNY, if they come out right, I have some pics I took at ADD today upon my return from Gondar and Bahr Dar. Was nice to see ET's two 73Gs on the ground, as well as a 757 departing (the last one with the ol' colours). One L-100 was stationary since my departure on Monday. Have taken a few pics of the various Fokker 50's at ADD, BJR and GDQ. Scheduled to return to North America on Wednesady.
As for the SEA-ADD flight, here's the availability:
