Ethiopian Air Business Class seat 787 Dreamliner vs. 777

I have an option between selecting business class on Ethiopian Air on a 787 or a 777 for our 10 year anniversary trip using MileagePlus miles. What do you suggest? Lie flat seats are of most importance to us.

Thanks!

777-200 / 777-300 you will definitely get a lie flat. 787-9 are all lie flat. 787-8 aircraft are a mix of lie flat & slightly angled, depending on the aircraft.

See the wiki here: Ethiopian Best Business Class Seats?

Note that ET frequently will swap equipment - so no guarantee which equipment you will get (though some routes have more frequent subs than others).

Which route are you looking at?

The 777 seats are more comfortable than either of the 787 seats. Stick with the 777 if you can (subject to aircraft swaps).

Can someone confirm that if I am on a 787 800 in J I have a worse than 50 / 50 chance of getting a 180 flat bed (10/19 aircraft have 160 degree seats) or have they replaced more of the angled seats since the Wiki was last modified in June of 2018?

I am booked to fly YYZ ADD in March on a 788

Sorry for posting this on two threads.

I second this. I have been in both seats and much preferred the 777 (that was a B777-200LR but as I understand it the seat is the same on the B77W)
