Quoting ETinCaribe (Reply 2): True, the IAD flight leaves ADD 15 min before the YYZ one, so there will be a 2x 77L convoy from ADD-FCO and a good part of the TATL leg as well. would be nice to capture that on camera at FCO.
I think that's been answered. IIRC, ET already served FCO so they already had a station there. And Ethiopia having been an Italian colony generates traffic between the two countries that wouldn't exist between any other city pair.
Skytrax is a very subjective airline quality ranking system. There are so many combinations and permutations taken into account that it isn't really what I would consider a "reliable" source of information. I personally visit the TR forums right here on ANET to get more accurate data points on what type of service to expect.
Ethiopian does appear to have a very solid product based on the reviews I have read.
Quoting ETinCaribe (Reply 14): Finally out of YYZ - slow of the blocks (why, not sure, any info anyone has?) but she is on her way back to ADD:

Quoting thenoflyzone (Reply 22): In two of the pictures, a banner is there, and it cleary states "first non stop between Africa and Canada". This is clearly false, as YUL has had non stop to CMN and ALG for years now.
Don't leave what the first part of the message says "Toronto Pearson and Ethiopian Airlines brings you the first non-stop between Africa and Canada"... It was in relation to "Toronto" not the rest of Canada. Ethiopian is the first airline to do that.
I truly wish them all the best, especially the large Ethiopian community of Toronto.

First part of the message does absolutely nothing to correct what is an innacurate statement. They could have said "Tim Hortons and Dunkin Donuts bring you....." and it would still convey the wrong message. They should have stated " between Africa and Toronto".
us Air Traffic Controllers have a good record, we haven't left one up there yet !!
