Some months ago there was a mistake fare from Mahe in the Seychelles to Dublin, in Business Class on a mixture of Air Seychelles and Etihad.
The trick was arranging a flight to get me there, but luckily United’s partner Ethiopian came through with a routing from Dublin, via Frankfurt and Addis Ababa with Mileage Plus miles and not a lot in taxes. The FRA-ADD segment is on the 787, my first time.
It’s nearly 12,000 miles over a weekend so it’s going to be ‘fun’. However, there are a number of firsts for me:
- First time on Ethiopian Airlines
- First flight on a B787
- First time in Addis Ababa
- First time on Air Seychelles
- First time on Etihad
- First time in Abu Dhabi
- First stay at the Hilton Northolme, Seychelles.
Of course I’ll be writing about these as I go along. If you’d like to receive a daily digest of the posts from this blog you can subscribe from this page. Just enter your email address on the right under the Twitter box:
Any suggestions to help maximise these ‘Firsts’ ?
