Cons: "First of all, my flight had no option to plug my cellphone, there was no TV screen and no WiFi.. they served some loaf of bread cut in half with some spices inside and called it dinner! But the most disappointing thing is the fact is that they LOST BOTH OF MY LUGGAGE BAGS, and the most they could offer me is $50 compensation (my belongings worth thousands of dollars) And even this I would have to claim from my “home country” which is completely unreasonable as my home country isn’t the one lost my luggage, the airlines had! Beyond shocked, disappointed and aggravated, this was my first time flying this airlines and I promise you it’s the last. Won’t recommend to anyone."

Pros: "Crew was so nice and very helpful"
Cons: "Timing, delayed by 20 minutes"
Pros: "WONDERFUL FLIGHTV"
Cons: "NONE"
Cons: "1. Make duty free shopping possible. My daughter, that I was traveling withl, loved some jewellery l wanted to buy for her but it was not possible because a credit card purchase was impossible. 2. Provide entertainment on board. Flight from Lusaka to Addis was excellent. But nothing to Nairobi"
Pros: "Yes.seat was just ok but not quiet comfortable"
Cons: "I think Ethiopian is reasonably good.I travelled to Seattle via delhi .from delhi to sea I travelled by Ana the reason was the fare of Ethiopian (Enugu to Seattle,round trip)was much higher and also you spend 37 hours before u reach your destination,it is too long.why can't u fly to usa direct ,then"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was overbooked in Addis"
Pros: "The ravioli was great, some of the other food was not great. Otherwise, the flight was easy."
Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."
Pros: "so good and comfortable"
Cons: "the plane was old though."
Cons: "Plane didn’t hold, even though I would have made it if they waited 10 minutes, and surely they knew I was coming from a delayed flight caused by Ethiopian and left anyways. Now have to take 3 extra flights and will miss a train at my final destination."
Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."
Cons: "Flight was overly delayed - as a result I missed my connection to Capetown and endured a lot of feeds in cancellation of pre-planned trips. Ground staff in Mumbai and Addis Ababa were awful. Mumbai staff was rude and inconsiderate. Addis Ababa team does not even make eye contact when talking to passengers. I could not wait for this travel to be over. Aircraft was mediocre.. During boarding, they don't seem to care about Priority passengers - despite my status with other Star Alliance carriers. Not sure I will fly by Ethiopian again."
Pros: "Seat layout-767 has only two seats across on the side sections, much better than three, which most planes have. Crew was courteous, captain explained reasons for delay. Plane was not crowded."
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours by weather. Ground operations seemed slow. All planes were delayed by weather, but ours took longer to get ready once weather cleared. Passengers were bussed to the plane for both boarding and disembarking while other planes used jet bridges."
Pros: "The crew very Politécnica and sensitive"
Cons: "To get the same food twice in the same flight To be awaken by the serving if the meals"
Pros: "I have only flown one better airline.....Emirates. The crew service was unbelievable. Wonderful experience. I have a new primary international travel carrier!"
Pros: "Landing on time"
Cons: "Limited choice of food- no vegetarian options, only meat."
Cons: "No entertainment available. Rude flight attendants."
Pros: "The quality of the planes"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"
Cons: "I had a long layover in Addis and the hotel I was allocated to could improve its service. I was expected to be served breakfast in the morning. My flight was at 820 am There could be some improvement on food"
Pros: "The food was delicious"
Pros: "This was an A-350 and the plane was very nice. Better entertainment system than the 777. The flight was smooth and the food was good."
Cons: "It took quite a while before the first service. It would be nice to have a drink service sooner."
Cons: "The plane from Entebbe to Addis Ababa was very old with tight seating."
Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."
Cons: "Lost my bags, missed two connections due to delays, took a bus home instead"
Cons: "Food was served to passengers from seat row 30 and beyond very late. About twenty minutes to landing In Addis so passengers were forced to gulp the food Hurrying which is not comfortable"
Pros: "Brand New Aircraft"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, very upset !"
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
Pros: "Again, the cabin crew where all very nice."
Cons: "Seating space was very tight on this plane."
Cons: "Terrible food (chopped cold spaghetti with no flavor) and terrible service (crew forgot to offer me tea or water, did not come when called) and over one hour late with no apologies given"
Pros: "Changing my flight at office in Lalibela, agent was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over one hour and NO explanation was given.. nothing, passengers kept approaching the gate, No one would give them an explanation as to why flight is delayed, when it was departing, nothing , we just sat and waited No communication at all"
Cons: "My monitor/screen never worked; could never watch a movie despite asking the flight attendants to reset my screen several times. Pretty bad for this 10+ hour flight. I have had much better experiences with crew, staff, friendliness, responsiveness, etc, on almost every other airline."
Pros: "It showed a decent tv show but the intercom kept interrupting"
Cons: "Delays leaving, delays arriving, the plane felt dirty"
Cons: "The flight was good"
Pros: "aircraft was clean and excellent condition, crew friendly"
Cons: "pre flight information unclear, changing gates and unorganized boarding could be improved."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived 20 minutes faster than scheduled. I usually order Kosher meal and enjoyed the food. Unfortunately the Kosher meal they started to serve recently is the WORST food I have had on board. Please avoid the KOSHER!"
Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"
Pros: "New 350 was a fantastic plane and the seats were excellent. Bags arrived within 15 minutes"
Cons: "nothing negative at all"
Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."
Cons: "Comfort level and food."
Pros: "The plane on this part was not too bad."
Pros: "There was nothing specific on the positive side. Only the cost of the ticket was okay."
Cons: "The plane looked pretty worn down. There was not a lot of Soap in the bathroom, which is a no-go for an international flight."
Pros: "No delays The food on board was good. The drinks were fine My luggage was safe"
Cons: "The basement waiting area at the Addis Ababa airport was very cold and the toilets were dirty and smelly as well The crew were unfriendly and unreasonable the time of alighting"
Cons: "Addis Airport is terribly organized and far too small for the volume of people they're pushing through it (which is probably the lead cause of the poor organization)."
Cons: "Very very old aeroplane"
