Lufthansa has announced beginning with the Winter 2018 season, they will no longer fly Frankurt-Jeddah-Addis Ababa as a single route.  Instead, the 2 cities will now see dedicated service from Frankfurt.    The new non-stop flights are both scheduled to begin on October 28, 2018.

For Addis Ababa, this means that an A340 will fly the route 5 times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (from Frankfurt).   Flight LH598 will depart Frankfurt at 2:10p and arrive in Addis Ababa at 10:55p.    The return flight will operate as LH599 departing Addis Ababa at 12:55a, arriving in Frankfurt at 6:35a.

For Jeddah, an A330 will fly the route daily except for Wednesdays.   Flight 652 will depart Frankfurt at 2:10p, arriving in Jeddah at 9:40p.   Flight LH653 will depart Jeddah at 1:50a, arriving in Frankfurt at 5:45a.
