The national carrier of Ethiopia is the first non-Japanese carrier to take delivery of a 787, which has now been in service since last September with All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines.

With only one delivered thus far, Ethiopian will be taking the aircraft on a tour of African and Middle Eastern destinations this month including Abuja, Accra, Entebbe, Jeddah, Johannesburg, Lagos, Luanda, Maputo, Nairobi, and as far afield as Mumbai.

After a second 787 is delivered in late August/early September, the 787 is expected to supplant the 777-200LR on the Addis-Dulles route.

Ethiopian Airlines has configured their widebody with Cloud Nine Business Class and Economy Class.

Cloud Nine seats transform into fully-flat beds for comfort on overnight flights.

Entertainment onboard is provided via personal monitors in Cloud Nine and individual seat back monitors in Economy.

Ethiopian’s B787 Dreamliner features just one large Business Class cabin, located in the aircraft’s nose section.

There are 24 seats, spread over 4 rows, in a 2-2-2 configuration, with the seats on the side slightly angled towards the windows, away from the aisle.

All seats face forward and have aisle access, except for the window seats (where you have to climb over the legs of your neighbor to reach the aisle).

Paired seats are staggered by a couple of inches (cm), which – together with a small partition – adds some privacy in case you are seated next to a stranger (although the seats and cabin are very open) and at the same time allows enough interaction when you are traveling with a companion.

The seats are covered in a red fabric, which is the only bright color in an otherwise neutral cabin color palette.

This is the same Business Class layout which you find on other airlines, such as KLM’s B777, United Airlines’ B787s, and Qatar Airways’ A330s.

The first ten Dreamliner aircraft were delivered with an older Business Class product with angled lie flat seats (170 degrees recline), while the newer Dreamliners have all been delivered with fully flat beds (180 degrees recline). 

The soft cushioned seat has a pitch of 78 inch (195 cm), which is defined as the space between one point on a seat and the same point on the seat in front of it.

The seat width is 22 inch (56 cm) – defined as the space between the arm rests – which is comfortable but not among the widest in the industry.

Each seat features its own 15,4 inch HD TV, which can be controlled by either a handset in the armrest or by directly touching the screen.

Below the TV monitor, you find a drawer which is large enough to store your laptop, and a footrest which becomes part of the flatbed once the seat is fully reclined.

The size of this footrest differs dramatically depending upon the row: the bulkhead seats in row 1 offer a much larger ottoman as compared to the cramp footrests of all the other Business Class seats (so make sure to choose a seat in the first row if you can).

The arm rest that is shared between paired seats features a small shared table (for drinks and snacks), the seat controls, and the remote control for the entertainment system.

It also houses a moderately sized fold-out tray table which needs to be pulled out for any use (after which you are kind of blocked in your seat).

On the other side of the seat, behind the headrest, is a small, somewhat difficult to reach storage compartment, where you find a universal AC power outlet and a USB port.

The seat goes fully flat (180 degrees recline), but again, your sleep comfort will depend on the seat you choose: except for the bulkhead seats in row 1 (which come with large ottomans), the footrests are too narrow for a good night’s rest.

The 246 Economy Class seats are arranged in a 3-3-3 abreast configuration.

Seats have a 32-inch seat pitch and an 17-18-inch width and on-demand Audio and Video services with 8.9 inch IFE screens and 80 channels in Economy Class, offering an array of entertainment to passengers of all age.
