Ethiopian put a 737 Max on today's ET728, ADD-MAN direct. BRU not available.

Wonder it that's their thoughts for a de-linked service?

Belive it’s to do with Air Traffic Strikes/Restrictions

I knew that, but wondered why they just didn't use the assigned 787 and went with the MAX?

It's quiet on here so I'm just putting some conspiracy theories out there, that ET will use the MAX for a nonstop ADD-MAN in the future

Did it actually fly? Flightradar has no information about the flight. Someone on it? Or eyes on the ground.

Would it have had to stop for fuel en-route?

I'm sure I don't understand much of this. But from context I assume it means today's flight was a 737 as discussed, but that on the 15th February it's going to be a 777?

Presumably they’ll have extra Brussels-bound pax who couldn’t get there today to mop up, hence the extra capacity.

Though tomorrow will also be a normal day, and there are daily flights to Brussels (not all continue to Manchester).

As stated by gojmc, the handling contract at MAN is changing to DHL, I think MAG may receive a response from Menzies legal department there.

Correct this is the start of taxiway Echo.

If I remember I'll send you a PM with a better photo tomorrow when I'm on the laptop.
