Anyone know if the 767 cabins have all been updated yet? I believe they were supposed to be done by the end of December.

Currently scheduled to be on one next week (ADD-JRO-ZNZ). Was originally scheduled to be 787, but now shows a 767 (and based on flight history, looks like there's a good chance that could still wind up being a 737).

No, only ET-ALP and ET-ALJ have been updated. ET-ALO is supposed to be updated sometime but I'm advised that ET-AMF/AMG are not going to be updated at all.

No, I can't. I cannot do anything on the ET airlines web site. It doesn't seem to work with safari browser.

Try this page https://www.ethiopianairlines.com/AA...booking/manage for Managing your booking

Also - ensure you are using the Ethiopian Reservation Code - If it was booked as an award through a different airline (ie. United) then you'll need to look up the ET reservation code via that airline's website.

It still doesn't work. I think it is the iMac that is the problem as I also tried firefox. I have the ET PNR from UA so I will just have to call. I guess the Ethiopian web site does not work with apple devices and apple software. I was able to get the seats assigned using a PC and chrome browser.

Very weird - I use Mac and Iphone (and have tried on safari, firefox, and chrome), and have never had that issue - though have often had random issues with their website, and just played around until something works. Glad you got it sorted eventually

I couldn't get the seat selection to work on Edge or Firefox, nor Chrome, so I emailed my local reservations office and they responded with a personalized reply. I was very appreciative of their efforts.

Do we know when the last of the 767's will be updated? My travel plans depend on this, if not updated I will take another airline, I can't risk it! I would be flying ADD-DEL in Sept 2018. Thanks!

I would not count on ET-AMF/AMG being updated at all. ET-ALO should be done sometime soon however, but it isn't a priority project for them.

I see, thank you. So it is an outright lie that they've said their entire fleet of 767's are updated... no integrity...

Curious where you have seen that? All the information I've seen in the Selamta magazine (although I haven't seen the May/June edition yet) says only ALJ/ALP are reconfigured.

Nothing has happened since either that I'm aware of and now their own on-board materials only say ET-ALJ/ALP rather than the generic Boeing 767 statement.

It looks like some of the 767 airframes are getting close to their EOL (ET-AMF & AMG) and it may be a poor financial decision to invest in an upgrade. These two were built in 2000 and the rest of ETs 767 fleet is 3 - 5 years younger.

I am flying LAX-ADD in DEC, which seems to use AOX and ARX . Have you heard anything about their plan to revamp them? Thanks!
