All I see is a bunch of Ethiopian planes

I’m guessing Ethiopian Virtual is doing an event now on the expert server.

It’s because tommorow’s hub would be at HAAB. That’s why people are flying from today’s hub (CYYZ/Toronto) to Addis Ababa as their long haul flight. Why from hub-to-hub? Because people wants ATC service at both of their departure airport and their arrival airport. As it’s already mid-night in Europe, you can see many people doing overnight flights. There will be another wave of departures to HAAB later during Americans’ nighttime.

It happens everytime around 6 hours prior to region switch, people would fly from the previous hub to the next hub according to IFATC Schedule. Nothing strange here :)

As a matter of fact, I am currently on a CYYZ - HAAB long haul trip. PS: For anyone doing this right now, there is extreme turbulence over the Atlantic Ocean. There is a tailwind of 180kts, which cut my ETE to dest about one hour.
