The timetable shows a 764 (767-400) operating the route. Is it a misprint or have they leased one from Delta or Continental? Ethiopian have been recieving new 763s and 737-700s lately.

I recall in one of the several threads on the 764 that appeared in a.net a few weeks/months ago that, in addition to CO and DL, ET had also options to acquire the 764. Maybe they did.
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

EddieDude, from Boeing's website every 764 has been delivered to CO and DL, so if ET has got one, it must be leased rather than purchased.

ET have 6 737-700s and 6 767-300ERs on order plus option on further 737s and 777s.

It's probably just a typo in the original post. When I just checked online it showed up as a 763.

ET does not fly 764's... for some reason though, Amadeus posts some of its flights as operated by 764s, especially those flights to EWR/IAD.

There is no 764 here; it's a mistake.

There are two stops according to the schedule...

What will they be? I assume Bangkok is usually one of them.

ET does not have 5th freedom between BKK and CAN, unlike between HKG and BKK. Also, as CptGirmayTesfa mentioned in another post, the stop at JIB is a tech stop, which is not always performed but exists on the schedule.
