Day 1.

Outside Dubai Airport at 2am, ready to check in for my 4:30am flight to Lagos (LOS) via Addis Ababa (ADD).

My flights for this trip were on six different airlines, flying 8 segments:

Day 1: Flying Ethiopian Ailines (ET) from Dubai to Lagos via Addis Ababa (DXB-ADD-LOS).
Day 3: Flying Arik Air (W3) from Lagos to Banjul (LOS-BJL).
Day 9: Flying ASKY Airlines (KP) from Bissau to Dakar (OXB-DKR).
Day 11: Flying ASKY Airlines (KP) from Dakar to Conakry (DKR-CKY).
Day 14: Flying Air Côte d'Ivoire (HF) from Freetown to Monrovia (FNA-ROB).
Day 16: Flying Air Maroc (AT) from Monrovia to Casablanca (ROB-CMN).
Day 17: Flying Emirates (EK) from Casablanca to Dubai (CMN-DXB).

And a close up of my intra West Africa flights.

A couple of Emirates ladies on the travelator air-side in Terminal 1. When I heard ironmanjt (Jason) and hauteboy (Jordan) were heading to West Africa I couldn't resist joining them to a not often visited part of the world.

At the Marhaba Terminal 1 lounge getting a snack.

Entry to the lounge was complimentary with my HSBC credit card, and was a nice place to rest up before my early morning flight to Addis Ababa. When planning how to meet up with Jason and Jordan in Banjul for the trip, my main options were to either fly via Barcelona or Lagos. As I have never been to Nigeria before, Lagos quickly won out as the preferred option.
