Capital Ethiopia, one of two English-language "business" papers in Addis, reports that Ethiopian posted half a billion birr profit (~ US$56.32 Million) in the first half of its fiscal year. This is recorded as a 39% increase in profits when compared to the same period last year, with a 21% increase in passengers. I hope I read it right.
Also interesting is what the paper reiterates, a "long awaited" cooperation to be signed between Ethiopian and Lufthansa, including code sharing. Two or three weeks ago, the same paper had given a 1-week time line for such signing, while another paper, Addis Fortune, has not picked up the story.

Quoting AA1818 (Reply 2): Anyone knows what ET's current fleet is??
Do they fly to London, UK?
Quoting AF022 (Reply 3): From Amadeus it says they will have 6 frequencies from Heathrow in the summer.
This is true, There will be service every day except Tuesday. All flight except Thursday will operate with B757-200 but Thursday will be 767-300ER which will be a nice change for the LHR service! All flights currently operate non-stop LHR/ADD stopping inbound via FCO but the weekends operate ADD/LHR direct, however for Summer 2007 3 of the LHR/ADD flights will route back via FCO including the 763 service
