the 757 is coming from Ryan International Airlines reg N920RN i believe it is in Arizona now being refurbished and painted. the LGW route will be swapped to a daily 767 starting 30december 2005.
The aircraft is being reconfigured with 16C and 144Y in a 60" pitch up front and 34" pitch in back. The most legroom of any flight to Europe from Ghana. (with the exeption of 5W, however their seat picth will be reduced in the near future to allow preminum passengers seats.)

Also will give a lot of space up front with wider seats then AZ, BA, KL.

Dusseldorf is also planned 3 weekly 767.
they also will codeshare on LOS and ABJ on LH and ET flights.
Soon they will also codeshare with KLM on the daily AMS-ACC-AMS.
Also in the CRS they have 2 daily 767 flights to lagos. not sure if they are ''ghost flights''.



Next destinations, Suarabaya, beirut, paris, Accra

If you knew what was going on you would know G0 won't be flying the route with their own metal.

Don't you think that if G0 was going to codeshare on ET flights between ACC and LOS they would actually have known that they won't fly the route anymore?

Yah you would think, but the fact that the flights were available on Amadeus even after ET was discontinuing that route is what's puzzling.

You do realise that by the "end of next week" the plane will already have been delivered and started service?

Was this aircraft leases or purchased by GIA. Local newspapers here in Ethiopia reported that the board of directors of ET approved the 10 million USD investment for getting 24 pc of GIA. I am a little puzzeled because if 24 pc is 10 million, GIA is worth a little over 40 million only????
I can't post a link of the airticle because the website for the paper hasn't been updated yet. But as soon as it is I will provide the link for news brief.

maybe the 10million is an initial investment?
From an old article:
Ghana government with a 25% share in the new airline and 40 percent to Ethiopian Airlines and GIA.
but again this doesn't make sense 105% funded?
Asked if Ethiopian Airways is interested in a 40 per cent share in Ghana Airways he says, “ I cannot comment on the exact number of shares Ethiopian Airlines is buying but generally I will say that it is one of the things on the table.”
