In his words, “Ethiopian Airlines is one of the fastest growing airlines in the world and I am proud to say that the UK is working with Ethiopian Airlines. I am also delighted to see the partnership developing in action as Ethiopian is enjoying the Rolls Royce engines and the wings of the A350. My visit to Ethiopia is quite instrumental in boosting the existing partnership between the UK and Ethiopia.”
Ethiopian currently flies to major cities in Europe including London, Brussels, Dublin, Frankfurt, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Rome, Stockholm and Vienna. Oslo will join Ethiopian's network as of March 26, 2017.

Oh yes, the British man had enough to eat and drink as he was treated to Ethiopian hospitality.
