Ethiopian has cancelled the lease of 2 744s as they are not available immediately.
Instead they will receive one A330-200 (NOT 2) , arriving June 17th , and following by an MD11.
Both planes will be leased for 6 months.
They will be replaced by either 2 777s or 2 767-300ERs , depending of the avaibility on the second hand market.

I really wonder where that A332 is going to be sourced from. A332s are currently very difficult to get by. I am guessing we are talking about an MH-frame. MH has been disposing of the A332s, and two of them are/were supposed to go to VN, with some others being withdrawn.

It seems this A332 will be leased on ACMI from Star Al.

Yes, that's right.

Is the number for the A330s only one?

Is this for real? Is it getting an ET scheme? Please confirm. Do you know when it is set for rollout/delivery?

Not being done in ATL, and nothing firm. Depends on routes.

The A330 will be coming with a star airlines logo . . . Only the word 'Ethiopian' will be included at the central part of the fuselage in smaller fonts . . .

The A330 is scheduled to fly to Addis on the 18th, that's on Sunday.

The MD-11 will fly the ADD-IAD route . . . to cover the planned additional frequency.

Do you think ET will be able to do as planned? I doubt very much the availability of both 777 and 763 in the market . . . or else the lease rate may be expensive.

ET should have gone for the 777-200ER during its fleet renewal which saw the phasing in of new 763s & 73Gs. This was a strategic mistake that is costing ET dearly interms of limited capacity. Look at KQ and their 777s. They are bringing them fortunes! IMHO ET should be very careful when it comes to the decision on the composition of the 787s it has on order.

Cheers!

Could you explain what you mean? From what I can tell the 787 looks like a great aircraft for ET

ET's website has the MD11 loaded for flights in August.


737MAX, Cool Planes for the Worlds Coolest Airline.
25 ETStar : IIRC the additional frequency is already being operated, with the fourth flight leaving on Wednesdays. As for capacity, that's another question, as i
26 AF022 : There is no way ET will be able to fly nonstop to Washington. The altitude is way too high. Demand from London to Nairobi is probably many times that
27 Dkny : Thank you Becca735. It shows the MD-11 will operate IAD-ADD 3 times a week and a 763 once a week. How will ET manage the cockpit crew that fly the 76
28 Wjcandee : Or they could deadhead home...
29 Becca735 : I think what Ethiopian787 wanted to say is that ET should take care when deciding on the mix of 787s, the number of 787-8s and 787-9s.
30 Becca735 : Correction! It'll be flying to Addis on the 17th, that is tomorrow - Scheduled to arrive at Addis around 1800 hrs
31 Wjcandee : Anybody know when the MD11 is coming?
32 INTENSS : Not yet....
33 Post contains links ETStar : off topic, but anyone notice this "60-year" stickered aircraft? It also happens to be the aircraft with the flawed tail scheme ... http://www.planepic
34 Wjcandee : What's the hold up?
35 Dkny : Most 767 and 757 have the 60th sticker on them.......
36 Post contains links Dkny : Here is an official press release from ET about the 330 http://www.flyethiopian.com/news/report.aspx?nid=132
37 Becca735 : The sticker is put on all ET jet aircraft as part of the 60th year anniversary celebration.

40 Persotvik : What is the reg. of the WO MD11 which is going to Ethiopian? Ex DL aircraft?
41 ETStar : So who is really providing the MD11? Any concrete information? Someone even mentioned a repaint at ATL a few posts ago ...
42 LN-MOW : *Cough, cough* .....
43 ETStar : Robitussin!
44 Flyer732 : The MD-11 will have titles applied in ADD, not ATL.
45 Wjcandee : So, I guess we're still wondering where it's coming from. As I mentioned on the World stock board, I suppose that the wet lease could be with Air Nami

49 Et767fan : Greetings all! Regarding the MD11, ET's website has confirmed the arrival of the aircraft. It is being leased from World Airways in its current livery
