Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Do better for the meal according to the health safety."
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: "Yes, the crew were nice and amazing"
Cons: "Serve warm food not cold"
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks (or waterbottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as good as other airlines."
Cons: "Flight delays with no info from staff. Food poorly prepared. No orderly queues - there is aggression with no intervention from staff. There is no need for two security checks when making connections in Addis. Plane loos were all very stinky and dirty. I now remember why I had stopped using ET!"
Cons: "Customer service need more improvement they should know how to handle things . Just be courteous is. More than enough"
Pros: "Punctuality in Punctuality"
Cons: "Everything's is ok"
Cons: "Addis Ababa is chaos and not clean."
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."
Pros: "The airline was quick to give vouchers for food and hotel when flight was delayed by 5 hours. They were also efficient in rebooking missed connecting flight."
Cons: "On top of a five hour delay that got me to my arrival point 14 hours behind schedule, my two checked bags were also lost and have not been found up to two days later. The food was like being on a Delta flight, and the entertainment screens in my entire row would not work, nor did many others."
Pros: "Excellent seat"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything starting from the check in to on board restrooms"
Pros: "Crew was super nice. The woman at check-in gave us bulkhead seats so my friend and I could sit together. With this, we were able to board first to get plenty of space in the overhead bins. Food and flight entertainment were free and definitely better than average."
Pros: "G"
Cons: "G"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, very helpful"
Cons: "3 hour delay in flight from Chicago to Ethiopia due to ‘mechanical issues’ made me miss my connection. I was put up in a hotel, but woke up in the middle of the night to roaches all over the place. Not the best experience"
Pros: "Champagne; boarding via SATS business class was smooth but I doubt Ethiopian has much responsibility or this."
Cons: "The rest: even mediocre fast food would have been better. The starter was some chewy rosebeef, the main where soggy chicken nuggets. The butter served was rancid! Gross. Also big difference between the older and newest 787! This was the older☹️. Ground crew unhelpful."
Pros: "I liked they’re fury free in flight shopping, very nice affordable pieces of jewelry and perfumes"
Cons: "They weighed my carryon! I haven’t seen any other airline do that before. I flew with them 3 times this year, 13 hour each flight and the entertainment was not the best. They didn’t have enough current movies or tv shows. The food was bland. Coffee cups were plastic and it burnt my finger."
Pros: "The general attitude of the crew was good"
Cons: "There should be improvement in the food"
Pros: "we had an overnight stay in addis ababa so we got a free accommodation in town, that was so great, a chance to see town and get a good night sleep before our next flight. the plane is big with screens so you can watch movies, the seat is comfortable, even for a tall guy like me (1.9 m)."
Cons: "It did took a lot of time since we landed until we got our bus to take us to town to our hotel. we waited in the airport for more than one hour, it was late, and we were tired. but after we got to the hotel, it was perfect"
Pros: "I like the Direct route"
Cons: "Long wait time at checkin Only certain employees accepted money for extra baggage fees Long time boarding Most staff were friendly An employee on board with short hair was not nice and her hair wasn’t professional Paid $160 for the extra bag, but it was lost It is still lost!"
Cons: "The whole boarding process was a bit chaotic. I was really called on the plane. I tried to signal for a blanket or some food but there was only 2 cabin crew members."
Cons: "Lack of communication. The flight was delayed and boarding was very chaotic due to poor communication."
Pros: "The staff was very kind."
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable. They forgot my food and drink. The attendant sneezed on me without covering her mouth, my tv didn't work. The plane was dirty. I asked to be moved up to any of the 10 open seats in business and they said they can't. It was actually one of the worst flights I've ever taken anywhere in my life."
Pros: "I like that the bulkhead seats (typically where the baby bassinet is placed) have electrical outlets which I used to easily charge my phone; and that there is nice legroom space."
Cons: "Economy is a bit tight; the bidding process for Cloud Nine (business class) has reduced the chance of passengers being upgraded for free especially as a means to reward frequent flyers, or help passengers with special needs/accommodations."
Cons: "The lateness. Very bad. 2h45min late, unbelievable. And also the airhostesses services are very poor. I have to claim more time before they give me water for my food."
Cons: "I used ethiopian on my way back too they told me my bags will go all the way to my final destination and it did not my bags are now LOST!! Crew is not attentive Food was so bad! I ecpexted quality in all areas but not even close."
Pros: "The food was delicious"
Pros: "The standarts (equal to african standarts of course)"
Cons: "Long wait with no care for. At least a place to rest. They changed our seats with no reason"
Pros: "The crew members are very friendly, always smiling and attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system needs an upgrade. Touch screens unresponsive."
Pros: "Loved having traditional ethiopian food"
Cons: "One flight attendant condescending but she seemed to disappear after takeoff and the other ladies were excellent"
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."
Cons: "Little turbulence but nothing serious"
Pros: "The friendliness and willingness to assist passengers when they notice one facing a challenge"
Cons: "The chairs in economy do not give sufficient leg room especially for tall persons, this would present a challenge on long haul"
Pros: "service very friendly"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "USB plug, nice TV/ entertainment"
Pros: "Children running up and down isles screaming while I was trying to rest. I had to go to the rear of the plane to ask the stewardess to bring it to a stop. They should have stopped it BEFORE I had to ask them to stop it."
Cons: "There was a four hour delay for departure!"
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"
Pros: "Their flight attendants care about people, and overall it's a great airline, except for food."
Cons: "Ethiopian Airlines consistently has sub-quality food."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The food. And the on board entertainment. Staff was also nice but a little bit sloppy and slow."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. No information was given on this. Also,Addis adaba is not a tier 1 Airport. I'd rather pay the same. Money to go through Qatar or dubai."
Pros: "787 was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was edible but no more. Flat angle beds I thought had been extinct, especially on a new 787"
Cons: "Hi, I have asked 3 members of the crew to get me a glass of water from the time I boarded the flight. It took 45 minutes for them to hand me a glass of water. I have to wait till they all got settled. Only when them to start the service they were able to give me some water. I was really thirsty otherwise, I wouldn't have to ask for three members. I think it's important that they respond more promptly and do a quick service considering the long flight we have."
Pros: "Most things were fine"
Cons: "I don't like the 787 dreamlike at all: it is not built for pax like me who are taller than average. I can hardly remember an occasion when any of the cabin crew smiled."
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: "Nice staff, lits of attention in my aeat"
Cons: "Blocked toilet made cabin unpleasant and stuffy. I was uncomfortable because of smells in the plane. Shoukd have been fixed immediately. Not sure the Purser knownehat to do. Skywatch soes not work in center seats. Could not follow flight status."
Cons: "We were treated poorly at Kigali airport. Airport and Ethiopian Air staff provided horrible service. Completely unacceptable."
Pros: "It was a good flight, made only a little disappointing by all the children running through the plane, opening the washroom doors and leaving them open. A little strange, really."
Pros: "Seats recline back a lot"
Cons: "Two hour delay to taking off due to engine issues"
