Not sure it was a basic airline so nothing much to like but what was annoying was they delayed so much we missed our connecting flight and we had to almost fight to be out on the next flight and also even get food

Cons: "It’s a hop and a skip, just 2 1/2 hours. But. Nice flight"
Pros: "The crew was good and friendly. The seat was good for a domestic business class"
Cons: "The food was not good. Chicken was very overcooked and the mashed potatoes tasted like they came from a box"
Pros: "The seat and the crew were fantastic! The crew was so friendly and helpful and always checking to make sure that everything was ok. Also, they proactively cleared trash from my area"
Cons: "The food was fine, but not exceptional"
Pros: "Business Class on the Code Share, South African Air was superb"
Pros: "Was surprised with a meal and all beverages were free including alcohol."
Cons: "Entertainment limited to predetermined programming on screens every 5th row or so."
Cons: "The boarding process was just a free for all. Could not get tv to work, no help from crew. It would have been nice to get our passport control forms on the plane, instead of at airport. Other flights comeng in had theirs."
Cons: "I was not allowed to bring my carry-on luggage on to the plane. Even though I was permitted to carry it on the in-bound flight. When I surrendered my bag at the plane's door I was assured that it would be safe. Once I got to JFK and passed through customs, I retrieved my bag and the Laptop was gone!"
Pros: "I loved the fact that there was good leg room - it felt more like premium economy to me. The boarding was timely - no delays at all The food options were good and they had other generous items in addition. I enjoyed the flight, the temperature was just right."
Pros: "The last leg of our trip was very comfortable, modern seats, pleasant service, and great food."

Luggage delayed for one day. I called customer service, and they had no info and no empathy. Boarding was very disorganized and chaotic. We went nearly 7 hours with no food or snacks on the flight. This is not an airline that has respect for its passengers.

The wifi service was really poor I try to use it the service was extremely poor if that could be improved that will go a long way

Cons: "cramped boarding space and Addis airport. Inadequate space for volume of traffic. Capital investment in expansion required if Ethiopian to compete!"
Cons: "Ethipian Airlines overbooked my return flight and did not offer me an alternate return flight so I could return on my designated date. They instructed me to come back the following date to fly. I was not compensated nor offered at the very least an apology. The ticketing staff was unprofessional and attempted to blame me for not flying. Do not fly Ethiopian Airlines out of Accra ever!!!"
Pros: "The landing was smooth and so was the whole flight! Loved it"
Cons: "Food. I ended up throwing up shortly after eating"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on thier inflight menu and the check-in and boarding experience"
Pros: "Cabin crew was great at customer service. Very helpful."
Cons: "The food was the same on consecutive flights, which made eating painful. And the Addis Ababa airport is very poor right now."
Pros: "crew good. seat base was not soft nor comfortable."
Cons: "have crew offer drinks more often throughout the flight. every passenger gets dehydrated and needs more drinks. I had to go to the back and get drinks myself."

Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and generally this flight is comfy"
Cons: "The queue during boarding is very long, they need to add counters"
Cons: "Flight take off was delayed aprox 40mnts & pilot’s language and message was not clear why we are still grounding !"
Pros: "Toilets were clean right up until landing"
Cons: "When breakfast was served, there was only the option of poached eggs. We asked if there was an alternative and Philip said No. Shortly after starting our cold poached eggs Philip brought the people across the aisle to us a sausage alternative?! All the flight attendants looked unhappy until getting off the plane. Entertainment was very basic and not really up to date."
Pros: "Everything was Amazing. This is one of the best Airline out there and they need more recognition."

Cons: "I find your company canceled my ticket from Kenya to Cairo for all my 7 tickets"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The timely departure and arrival."
Cons: "The aircraft deployed is old no entertainment facility...you cannot charge your phone."
Cons: "According to the KQ App the flight was direct to Cape Town but when we got to the airport we found the plane was stopping in Livingston’s. The result was we were an hour late. Most annoying. Surely the App can be amended to alert us of such changes"

Short lay-overs and total flight times. Everything else could have been better.

Cons: "Old plane with no entertainment. The flight was schedule for 7:10pm then changed to 8:20pm then changed again to 11:50pm."
Pros: "The flight was really cheap. Although you get what you pay for. My seat didn’t have entertainment working. This is not the first time that it happens and the crew only look at your face and say sorry. Doesn’t do anything about it."
Cons: "Entertainment working, better food, not allowing passengers with 3 big luggages as carry on."
Cons: "Planes need to be better maintained especially the in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing- dirty, old craft, your seat - someone is seating on your seat, and you need to find another seat"
Cons: "The plane delayed for more than 2h30min and explanation for it. I informed the crew I have diabetes and needed water/food. No answer, they attended me and heard my concerns when they were informed by a friend I was with "Hypoglycemia." I had vomit and a bad trip. I will think twice before doing it again!"
Pros: "Spacious ,new planes . Friendly crew . Great value for a relatively cheaper flight than other airlines ."
Cons: "Entertainment system lacked content , they should consider loading a greater variety even if it is older content . Food was decent but received some rock hard rolls and crossiants."
Pros: "The plane from Capetown to Luanda was a slightly older refurbished plane which meant more leg room which was really nice . The food was good and service friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment system had very limited preloaded content."
