– Ethiopian is upgrading their 767 – a badly needed upgrade for the ageing jets

The carrier has six 767-300ERs, which it uses on Indian, Middle Eastern and African routes.

The aircraft have been fitted with new flat-bed seats in a 2-2-2 configuration in its Cloud Nine business cabin, high-resolution 17-inch screens and in-seat power outlets, together with improved lighting.

Passengers in the main cabin will have new seats and multiple channels of inflight audio and video entertainment accessible with their personal electronic devices.
