Cons: "The security in Cairo was really a joke."

Cons: "Better seat"

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "they woke me up in the middle of the night to give me food.."

Pros: "The short flight and pleased to get food."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The boarding was superb."
Cons: "The food is ma ma!"

Pros: "Leg space, TV screen and entertainment and the decline of the seat."
Cons: "The toilets floors could be cleaned often. The food service cart could move for urgent pass to the toilet."

Cons: "On board attendants not the friendliest Kids food options very limited"

Pros: "Check in was brilliant. The incoming flight was half an hour early so they wanted to leave half hour early too. We were clearly instructed to be available at gate accordingly. Fabulous breakfast service in Business class too. Pre-order and indicate preferred time of service or to skip altogether so each customer got their required rest."

Pros: "Having never even heard of Ethiopian Airline, our expectations weren’t very high. We found the boarding process to work well. The staff was great and the meals were very good. The flights were on time and efficient."
Cons: "On many of the flights we had to use the roll up stairs. The water that they served tasted like tap water. The seats seem closer (less leg room) than other airlines."

Pros: "Everything was on time, high quality, and enjoyable"
Cons: "There was a fight on the llane but it was because a passenger with mental issues was provoked by a couple so ahe beat up the wife. This was not caused by ET and crew at all, but they stopped it."

Cons: "Old plane. Not comfortable for a relatively long flight"

Pros: "Crew"

Also the fare is very reasonable. Advertise more, let people know u Pls enhance and expand ur Advertisment among nigerians. Am already spreading d good news among our friends and colleagues. Ethiopian Airline is d way to go"
Cons: "It took too long for d luggages to come out. Pls improve on it"

Cons: "I sent them an email about an issue with my flight but they didn't get back to me"

Cons: "Chairs were not reclining. Asked for blanket and didn't get one so I was cold."

Pros: "Cabin crew were all charming."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I had to request earphones (which were not supplied in the seat pocket in front of me) five times from three different attendants over the course of an hour and a quarter before I was given them. This was not just so I could watch a movie but because the quality of the plane's public address system made it very difficult to listen to the announcements from the captain and the crew. Listening on earphones I was able to hear everything clearly. Why it had to take so long just to give me earphones I don't know."

Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."

Pros: "Excellent chicken dish"

Pros: "When I originally booked this trip it was with one connection and a 16 hour commute time. They added legs to my trip which significantly increased travel time. I tried to cancel my flight because I booked the flight with the necessity of arriving by specific days and times and they insisted on charging me for it so I just forfeited my seat and trip all together. There's nothing good to say about Ethiopian airlines."
Cons: "They are very unprofessional and unhelpful and I'll never book them again."

Cons: "Crew was not friendly and seemed to ignore my requests. Seat was not comfortable. Food was okay."

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"

Pros: "The Ethiopian Air flight crew are outstanding at their work."
Cons: "Not enough water. The water is doled out in small cups."

Pros: "Excellent friendly service on both legs of journey. CC were easily the highlight. Meals in economy were mucccch better than in business class which is mind boggling. They've got to get this element right. My biz meals looked like it was just dumped on my plate pretty embarrassing. Onboard entertainment could also be improved ...."

Cons: "On both flights. From Tel Aviv to Addis Ababa and from Addis Ababa to Tel Aviv my seat would not recline. These were night flights and the seat in front of me did recline. so it was a very unpleasent experiance"

Cons: "The waiting time for the connecting flight to was far too long...."

Pros: "1. Nice flight 2. flight attendants good customer service skills"
Cons: "Equipment issue-tv not working well , unable to charge my cell phone USB port not working. 2. Food on my return flight was terrible I am a vegetarian was mostly served warmed up frozen vegetable which were terrible 3. Return trip set next to noisy people, had coffee spilled on my dress, was upset and did not enjoy return trip .Grateful for flight attendants who moved me to another seat."

Pros: "The food and the crew were nice. The entertainment would go in and out, with the buttons malfunctioning at times."
Cons: "Started boarding 4 hours after scheduled departure. Though there was bad weather, our departure was still delayed way past the "adverse weather" conditions at the airport. In the 4 hours we were in Washington, there was no communication whatsoever. No one to inform us of us potentially missing our ADD to JHB connecting flight. None of the workers wanted to help us."

Pros: "Would have liked to have seen more of the cabin crew, but they were pleasant."
Cons: "Food choice was limited. Ethiopian often ran out of meals and just gave me whatever option they had left. Entertainment system didn't always work properly."

Cons: "I find it exceptionally bizarre that for a company whose name represents a country that spends more than half the year fasting that there isn't an option for this unless you specifically ask online."

Pros: "The crew were courteous"
Cons: "The air conditioning was malfunctioning and there were insufficient blankets on the plane."

Pros: "EVERY THING WAS ON TIME"
Cons: "FOOD NOT GOOD"

Pros: "The comfort of the plane and the flight was pleasant"
Cons: "There is racketeering syndicate in Guangzhou Airport exploiting passengers only on ETHIOPIAN AIRLINE after check-in."

Pros: "Orderliness"
Cons: "Flight delay"

Pros: "The crew is very kind."
Cons: "I was the second person in the toilet. It was already dirty (is there a better flushing system available?) and the liquid soap didn't work. Also the seats are very uncomfortable for a night flight: hard and crowded. No personal tv sets. Only overhead, and from where I was sitting I had either to look back uncomfortably, or look at a small screen quite away up/"
