All Ethiopian Boeing 777 passenger aircrafts now have 180° business class full flat bed. Ethiopian Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) has completed the retro-fitting and the aircrafts have started operations with the new 180° business class full flat bed.
The retro-fitted B777-200&300 with new 180° flat business class seats are expected to enhance passenger comfort and improve the Ethiopian product. These new 180° business class seats impact the overall Business class service to a higher level of customer satisfaction.
Ato Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO Ethiopian Airlines said, "I would like to congratulate our MRO team for the outstanding performance and for the job well done. On the other hand we are very pleased to provide our passengers with the best on-board experience especially on our long-haul routes. Ethiopian Airlines has made the choice of purchasing the 180°flat business class seats because of the enhanced customer satisfaction they bring. Our business passengers will be able to sleep and arrive fresh to their destinations fully rested and ready to take on business after a good night’s sleep.
VP MRO Ethiopian Airlines Group, Zemene Nega, remarked, “We are pleased to successfully complete the retrofitting project on our B777 fleet with our in-house capability which is a testament of Ethiopian self-sufficiency in trained aviation professionals. We have made huge investments to accomplish the retrofitting project which encompasses; modifying seats to full flat laying positions, rearranging passenger service, rework on IFE and software change.”
