Our travel was 'a bit different', the plane at
Frankfurt had a technical problem and we where afraid to miss our
connection flight in Ethiopia, we had only 2 hours connection time.
After 2 hours delay we started the flight to Etiopia via a short

showed him the licence DL2NUD and pilot was at the flight DLH9?? (i
forgot the numbers) so the pilot asked the other plane to wait for
After some time he came back with a print, it seems a kind of telex,
that DL2NUD was welcome and the keep the plane at the ground, that
time we where moved to Business Class as we could leave the plane
quickly (but no bubbles or smokes salmon for us)
2215 we landed at and 2200 was bording of the next flight, we got a
escort to the plane.
Via Uganda we did fligh to Rwanda in 4 hours, the last part was a
bit more relexing adn we did arrive at 0140 local.
