According to Aviation Herald, a Boeing 737-800 operated by Ethiopian Airlines with the registration ET-AOB was en route at FL370 when the pilots slept off while flying ET-343 from Khartoum, Sudan, to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia.
According to the website, the aircraft kept flying at FL370 after reaching the apex of its descent and kept following the FMC path set up for an approach to runway 25L without descending.
According to the website, ATC made multiple unsuccessful attempts to get in touch with the crew.
In addition, it stated that “approximately 25 minutes after overflying runway 25L at FL370, the autopilot disconnected. The disconnect wailer awoke the crew, who subsequently maneuvered the aircraft for a safe landing on runway 25L.
“The plane stayed on the ground for around 2.5 hours before taking off on its subsequent voyage.
The Aviation Herald’s statement that the aircraft maintained FL370 until it had flown over the runway and then started to descend and maneuver for another approach is supported by ADS-B data.
