The routing of Ethiopian Airlines' 3x weekly roundtrip flights between ADD and EWR
shows a stop at FCO
; from all timetable indicators, the flight does not carry pax between ADD and FCO
nor does ET
have traffic rights between FCO
. Neither are there any "conditional stopover" notations at FCO
for the flights.
strictly a technical/refueling stop for ET
on its Addis Ababa to New York and Washington D.C. flights? And if there are no passengers enplaned/deplaned at Rome, why an enroute technical stop there? -- it seems to be some distance off the great circle route between ADD and EWR
