Bloomberg, You Owe Ethiopian Airlines an Apology: How Your Article Contradicts the Facts and Spreads Misinformation

Ethiopian Airlines _ Bloomberg

By LJDemissie

Dear Bloomberg,

I read your article about the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787-9 landing in Hong Kong during a super typhoon. I found your article misleading and inaccurate, as it contradicts the official data and statements from the Ethiopian Airlines and the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department.

You quoted a former pilot and aviation expert as saying that the landing was “very risky” and “not recommended” in such conditions

According to these sources, the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787-9 landed in Hong Kong with a tailwind component of 15 knots, which was within the aircraft’s operational limits. The pilots had obtained clearance from the Hong Kong air traffic control, and they had followed the standard procedures and regulations for landing in adverse weather conditions.

Therefore, I think your claim that the landing was risky and dangerous is unfounded and sensationalized. I suggest you revise your article or add a disclaimer to reflect the facts and avoid spreading misinformation.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely,

  1. Thank you. We all should be ready to defend the interests of Ethiopia (Ethiopian) at all times, and not fish for any opportunity to put the nation down, and worse to undermine peaceful development.

  2. We all must remember that, western media outlets, make their living by reporting fake news, spreading false information and chastising ETHIOPIA and AFRICA in general, which I call western media terrorism and propaganda against ETHIOPIA and AFRICA.

      Humble Commentary, 8 Sept 2023
      ha). THIRTY SEVEN (37) golden words. Fantastic. !!!

      hu). Yes, 37 words say it all about the negative attitude of ‘western media terrorism and propaganda against ETHIOPIA and
      Black AFRICA” in totality.

      he). There is nothing to add . Gideon said it ALL.

      haa). What is left is for us Black Africans — in particular, Ethiopia —- the topic of the Article —- to wake-up and save
      that Golden Country, ETHIOPIA

      hie). IT IS THE ANCIENT HISTORY LOADED INDEPENDENT — YES, FREE — BLACK AFRICAN COUNTRY — THE ENVY of SO
      MANY.

      hii). What happened to the gallantry of so many Ethiopian heroes ?!?!

      ho). Will the ancient saying “GONE WITH THE WIND” is applicable in relation to the famous country named ETHIOPIA.???

      ——– MAY THE GOOD LORD CONSIDER THE PAST GALLANTRY OF ETHIOPIA ———–
