Ethiopian Airlines 809 ADD - JNB
Airbus 350 - Business Class
I was really looking forward to this flight. I originally had selected a seat in the middle of the cabin, which is configured in a 2-2-2 format. But in the lounge prior to departure I saw that row 1 was empty and that changing to this seat would offer me an empty seat next to me.
The first thing that I noticed was the spaciousness of the cabin, there are no center overhead bins which gives the plane a very clean and open feel. Ethiopian does not offer WiFi nor Mood lighting on the plane, but still it has a good overall feel.
The flight was scheduled at just over 5 hours and even if it was departing at 830 AM was fully catered as a lunch flight.
I was extremely happy to see an Ethiopian option on the menu and was even more suprised I was told that this was in addition to the main dish! This was going to be a food feast flight and I was looking forward to it.
I set up my base across two seats, with the window seat used to display the flight info on the screen and as a cargo spot.

After takeoff a choice of beverages were offered with a plate of Ethiopian Kolo (which is similar to toasted barley with nuts and chickpeas mixed in), it was a tasty and unique option.
The flight went along uneventfully and just after five hours after takeoff we were approaching Johannesburg.
