The supervisor informed me that it was an error but the airline will honour the ticket but will not grant Business Class lounge access at KUL.

So - all-in-all - it turned out ok. Ethiopian Airlines has a pretty good hard product and the cabin crew were exceptionally nice. It may have had something to do with the fact that there was only myself and one other in the 24 seat business class cabin.

Incredible Value!
That's pretty stingy of ET - how much would it have cost them for the lounge access if they are going to already honor the fare and looking at the load - it's a wonder no one really buys Biz for the normal fares they charges.
I wanted to try this segment (incld EgyptAir and RJ), but strangely they never offered any interesting 5th freedom fare like what LH used to offered.

Cheers!
