Re: Potential for an Ethiopian Airlines esque flag carrier in West Africa?

If Nigeria ever get their act together, than yes.

Otherwise, ET is running a decent operation out of LFW on ASKY. They even feed the EWR and (in a few months) IAH flight to those ASKY flight just to capture those US-Nigeria/Ghana (and all the other West African nation) traffic.
