I work for Astraeus, the airline that operates the LGW-CDG-JIB route for D3 Daallo Airlines. I would love a ride in one of the IL8s at Djibouti. Unfortunately, we have to get our crew rest whilst we're down there, so not really a possibility

Quoting MD90fan (Reply 7): The IL-18 wow!!! Has anybody flown on one??
I did in 2003 on a Phoenix Air machine from Sharjah ! It was great fun. See http://www.airliners.net/discussions/trip_reports/read.main/30697/
Well of course the safety of a Daallo Il-18 is not as good as a Cathay 777 but Daallo seems to deal pretty professionally and responsibly in this tricky environment... Didn't have crashes or so yet. Going by bus in the region is more dangerous.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

The plans of my next tryp are:
I start with an AF flight from BCN to JED (320 and 772) + an B8 flight from JED to JIB (763) + an D3 flight from JIB to HGA (Hargheisa in Somalia) (IL18) + an ET flight from HGA to ADD (F50) + an KQ flight from ADD to NBO (737NG) +
a KL flight from NBO to BCN (772 and 738/9).
But I have a doubt. I heard that LX flies this route. In a quality words, which recommends me: BA, LX, SN or KL??
Before Xmas, I must travel to ACC and as a colleague on this forum said, G0 starts flights from LON to ACC but I know that the plane will be used on this route will be a 752. Maybe use AF but... my company will tell me something.
And Soups!!!!! I´ll take an Antrak Air AT4 from ACC to OUA. I´ll relate my experience when I return from my last tryp in this year.
After my stay here, I´ll fly to TNR from JNB with D6 in a 732 (i´m wrong????). Comments about it will be thankful.

Quoting Thomas_Jaeger (Reply 11): AF is not flying into ACC, just returned from ACC this morning on AZ (which was very bad by the way), it is a very nice place, nice people, you will enjoy it.
AZ planes are usually dirty from past experience.
