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."

Cons: "Old aircraft rickety seats"

Cons: "Customer service need more improvement they should know how to handle things . Just be courteous is. More than enough"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "crammed seats, meh food first experience with ethiopian, wasn't great"

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: "Comfortable because the plane wasn't full."
Cons: "Check in and boarding was atrocious. We were told that we wouldn't be allowed to go to the gate if we didn't get through the check in but it wasn't our fault that it was taking so long. There weren't anywhere near enough staff and so by the time we managed to check in we had to go straight to the gate. Same thing when boarding. Took far too long and there was an inevitable delay with no apology. Plane ok. One toilet out of order so had to walk the length of the plane. Games no good without a handset and very few new movies."

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

Pros: "The flight from Newark to Abidjan was pretty comfortable and smooth"
Cons: "Once in Abidjan, it became a mess. First we were left waiting for over an hour without any explanation. Then we were told that we had to retrieve our baggage and then recheck them. Hardly anyone spoke English so that was a long and confusing ordeal."

Cons: "We are stuck at the airport because Ethiopian Airlines sent out false and miseading update stating that it’s flight was leaving at 6 PM as opposed to the scheduled 7:30 AM. Because of that no one showed up for the flight and there are no direct flights tomorrow that they would put us on! My father recently had a heart attack and this is causing him immense suffering! Additionally patient with emergencies are waiting to see my husband tomorrow and Tuesday but will not be able to because he stuck at the airport! They are refusing to put us on an airline us direct flight tomorrow! Also we have spent at least seven hours on the phone and misleading (and that’s to put it kindly) statements have been told."

Cons: "Spent 10 hours in a broken seat... wouldn’t recline. Screen on next seat was broken so I couldn’t move there. Bathroom out of toilet paper and at the end of the flight there was SO MUCH TRASH AND STUFF EVERYWHERE it looked like the ground at an outside 3 day concert. I’ve never seen such a filthy plane. And the food needs improvement."

Pros: "I was a bit hesitant to fly Ethiopian Air for such a long flight (Dublin to LAX) however it turned out to be the best leg of multi-segment trip (all other flights were Aer Lingus or Delta and Ethiopian Air was far superior to both of those carriers). Flight attendants were friendly, the physical space was comfortable and spacious, the food was plentiful and delicious. Movies offered were relatively new and the IFE worked well. This flight is a continuation from Addis Ababa to LAX so when we boraded in Dublin most people were already onboard. It was a bit difficult to find space in the overhead bins but with a little rearranging of smaller packages by other passengers, we were able to fit our carry-ons in the overhead bin near our seats."

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."

Pros: "Lots of leg room, pillows, blankets..."
Cons: "Breakfast was cold and runny eggs, not so nice. And no vegetarian option offered."

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: "Free entertainment! Wish they worked with gogo to purchase WiFi though. Bathrooms are roomier than other airplanes! I’m glad the crew gave me the sandwich even though I was sleeping."
Cons: "One of the toilet covers wouldn’t stay up so you had to hold it while going. Paper towels would be nicer than tissue paper. Wasn’t able to use my boarding pass from my phone, waste of paper. Ginger ale would be a nice drink. Didn’t find a list of their drinks in magazine, that would make it easier. Whenever I needed to use the restroom they locked us out a lot whether for head count or re fueling."

Pros: "Seats are delapidated and food is ok!"
Cons: "Crew were very good"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No Wifi at Lome gate. I don't understand why there is no wifi in West African airports."

Cons: "Boarded plane, then sat for over an hour before departure due to paperwork processing of plane mechanical check. However, we still arrived close to the time we expected."

Pros: "Overall it was good flying experience. They upgraded me to an exit row for free when I checked in and asked, which was nice. We had a blanket, pillow, and toothbrush kit on our seats. They fed us and had in flight entertainment. This was a 10 hour flight, so its so important to get these types of amenities. I flew a different airline to my destination, and they didn't feed us at all! It was terrible! Ethiopian was much better!"
Cons: "The food wasn't very good (but most airline food isn't), the flight attendants didn't seem to be working much of the flight, just hanging out with each other (I was seated near them), and I really wish there was more room to get up, move around, and stand. On a 10 hour flight you can't sit the whole time. Wish the seats were a little wider, especially for such long flights."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Check in was a joke in Dublin, only 22 pax and they did a full team talk to start despite everyone bein there. In LAX they parked the plane in the middle of no where, and waited 30 mins before debark started, as the plane was so far away the terminal it took an hour for the bags. Food was horrible on both flights"

Pros: "The food was amazing and the plane is more comfortable and you can relax."

Pros: "We were told by United that Ethiopian Airlines does not allow more than 2 checked bags per customer, but that is absolutely not the case. We ended up driving to LA and found that Ethiopian accepts as many bags as we will pay for."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Being woken up throughout the night for food. The overhead screens were on all night which made it difficult to rest."

Pros: "Great entertainment center and seat back video."
Cons: "No Wifi available"

Cons: "Food horrible. Poor infrequent service, cramped seating, poor movie selection"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Slept most of the flight. Windows were cool (tint control)"
Cons: "Food was sub par. Leg room limited."

Pros: "service very friendly"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Great crew, decent food"

Pros: "Crew members were friendly, movie selection was good, food was nice as well"
Cons: "When checking in I asked if I'd need to collect my bags and recheck them for another flight. I was assured theyd make it all the way to my destination and I wouldn't need to re-check it. He was wrong and now I'm trying to find my lost bag."

Pros: "New plane."
Cons: "Addis airport is always a mess. Security check takes 30 mins+, gates are changed without announcements and there are no display mentioning flight or destination at the gate. For the flight, food not great and service slow."

Pros: "Good food and drinks"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised at the entertainment. Other than that, everything was pretty good. Nothing stood out as exceptional and nothing was particularly bad."
Cons: "The seats weren't the most comfortable, but on a 10 hour flight, nothing is."

Pros: "POLITE AND GENTLE CREWS. SERVICE WITH A SMILE. AIR FARE REASONABLE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES"
Cons: "IF FARE IS CHEAP THAN THAT DOES NOT MEAN THE SERVICES SHOULD BE POOR"

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: "The flight was smooth and the crew courteous. In fact the passengers all applauded when we landed."
Cons: "To reach Addis Abba/Arusha from the west coast of the US by Ethiopian Air, one must go through Dublin. I wish there was a Seattle to Addis Abba choice."

Pros: "The comforts offered in business class was most standard. In other words quite good. The food was middling. Also, 12 plus hours on a plane requires a larger selection of films. Finally, add wi fi."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Delays, Delays, Delays, 2 hours late !!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "aircraft was nice and well kept, and crew friendly."
Cons: "too many announcements on PA (information could have been summarized and delivered in the beginning, so that those who prefer to sleep can)."

Pros: "Was lucky to be able to get 3 seats in a row, so could sleep.. They were able to put me in 3 seats again on return, so all good for me... Crew nice, leg room decent, entertainment was fine... Movie choices were not best I've seen, but first world problem... Overall I would recommend.."
Cons: "The return journey time from Dublin sucks... 6am flight, so u have to stay up all night pretty much... If they could change that, it would be amazing... Food not great, so you would be better off bringing your own stuff..."

Pros: "Paid about 1000 round trip. Staff was attentive and respectful specially addis to LA. New aircraft was good and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment needs to have more recent blockbuster. Food variety should be expanded, need more choice"

Pros: "Flight crew were very nice and helpful. Plenty of room for carry on baggage."
Cons: "Veg food selections were very limited. A breakfast without meat choice would have been better than yet another rice dish. Some of the more recent movies started in the middle or near through end. Tried to rewind and restart but neither worked The toilet paper was not refilled at the stopover in Dublin and we ran out before LA!"

Cons: "Comfort level and food."

Pros: "route"
Cons: "food, service"

Pros: "Flight attendants excellent. Flights both on time."
Cons: "Film selection could have been better"

Pros: "The friendliness of the crew and their spirit of hospitality make this company stand our from others. Also the new aircrafts and the amenities on board are a big plus."

Pros: "Boarding was okay and crew were friendly"
Cons: "extremely old airplane, mediocre food, almost non-existent in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "The fact that I had a row of three to myself"
Cons: "I asked for an extra cup of coffee (cups very small) which didn't arrive until I reminded the stewardess several times. Flight was only half full. The food was very bad. A pink sausage and very, very dry bread, which absorbed all moisture in my mouth."

Pros: "I flew on the 787 dreamliner, and it was THE BEST airplane I have ever flown on. The service was excellent and the seats were very comfortable. I highly recommend this."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like."
