Take-off from Dubai was on time and we were served a decent breakfast soon after.

Ethiopian Airlines still have nine across (3-3-3) seating in their Boeing 777's, which seems to becoming increasing rare these days with most airlines now having ten seats across in economy (3-4-3).

The flight initally headed south-east over Oman and then down the Gulf of Aden, totally avoiding Yemeni and Saudi airspace due to the ongoing Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen.

Arriving at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport (ADD), the main hub for Ethiopian Airlines (ET) at 7:30am.

My last time at the airport was nine months ago when I was returning from my last trip to Africa.

Our 777 for the connecting flight to Lagos (LOS).

A row of new ET Boeing 787's in the distance from my window seat.

Climbing out over Addis Ababa soon after take-off.

Some Ethiopian Jetplane snacks and water that were soon served.

High above the dense jungle of the Central African Republic.

Lunch of fish and rice.
