The Cloud Nine Business Class had a fully-flat beds, but a bit narrow. Service was good. The bad thing is the Business loundge in Addis... noisy and not confortable.
The business class seats do lie flat, however, they do not have a bed length of 78 inches. I am 6' 2" in height which is 74 inches and found the seats are actually 68-69 inches in length since I found my feet bumping into the seat back in front, causing be to bend my legs. Trying to keep my legs straight was impossible.
The leg room is not too bad but the seat is not large, the width is not enough good. And chair is very hard, seems like a piece of wood covered by linen.
Terrible airline. Waited over 45 minutes to speak with agent. Employees take their sweet time to help customers, it’s worst than being in Jamaica and I thought they were bad. Will avoid flying on this airline at all cost. Paid $ 1800.00 for ticket
Not the best seat. The footrest for extremely small compares to the other business seats. I think all the middle section had the same.
The main windows of these seats were not open. They both had something like a view formwork. No view to the outside possible, only when leaning foreward to the next window. Very bad!
Excellent seats - 3 of us travelled Dublin to LAX, seats were huge, reclined more than enough to sleep. TVs are huge and the inflight entertainment system had more than enough new films to keep you occupied. Food was great and the cabin crew could not do enough to help you. Food is mixed, the Ethiopian food is fantastic, the wines very good, the breads and pastries and deserts all great, the main course was disappointing but we'd enough food on the Ethiopian main dish. Cloud 9 is worth every cent of the fares which are extremely competitive. Conviction buy.
Mucho más cómodo de lo esperado y muchísimo más que el promedio de otras aerolíneas de renombre. El viaje, muy largo, se hizo mucho más llevadero.
Great leg space, flights from Addis are usually overnight, so people don't use toilets that much. However be warned that not all Ethiopian 787 have same seatmap. I had the same seat (28B) on the flight from Addis and on return (both to and from Rome). On flight to Addis emergency row was 30! On flight back it was 28! Not sure how to distinguish which plane has which configuration. I booked those seats in advanced at Eth Airlines office in Addis and were told that both are at emergency exit.
This seat was a little more cramped than others I have sat on this plane. It seemed like the legroom was smaller than others and I found it difficult to put my legs under the seat in front of me.
Flew Dublin Addis on 15 Nov 2015 seat 2L was broken and didn't recline. On return leg on Nov 20, same seat hadn't been repaired and was still broken. Best not to choose this seat until someone cN confirm it's been fixed.
Very disappointed that ET did not install lie-flat seats in Business on their newest aircraft.Their B777's have them and are much more comfortable.
Avoid bulkhead seats on the 787 at all costs. The check-in agent recommended me to choose this seat due to the additional legroom. However: - What was not mentioned was that all of the bulkhead seats were occupied by various babies and young children who screamed and cried most of the 12 hours from DC to Addis. - If you consider that 787 seats are already very narrow, the space taken by the TV and table in the armrest makes it intolerable for a long flight. Ethiopian actually has quite good legroom on normal seats on its long haul flights, so much better off to choose one of them.
This seat has extra leg room, but be warned that the aisle shifts significantly over from the bathroom so flight attendants who aren't extra careful can easily ram your legs straight on.
Overall, a good seat, you will not be disturbed so much from the toilet and leg space is of course extremely good
