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: "Good service"
Cons: "Serve Warm food"

Pros: "Yes, the crew were nice and amazing"
Cons: "Serve warm food not cold"

Pros: "Nice aircraft and comfortable seating in economy with a good selection of music and movies on the seat back entertainment. Business class was mostly empty and looked very nice and roomy. They should upgrade their frequent flyers the way other airlines do to fill those empty seats and generate the good PR that results. The food was good in my opinion, and the Ethiopian coffee is great. Affordably priced tickets was the selling point for choosing them. They are a young airline and while they go through the motions of being a modern service-oriented airline, but alas for the most part they aren't there yet."
Cons: "We've flown a few Ethiopian Air flights now and while the flight attendants are nice, they aren't always on top of things and paying attention to the needs of the passengers. Not as helpful or attentive as we're used to. Boarding is chaotic and the overnight transfer at Addis Ababa is a total mess. If you get to leave through the airport in the early morning things are relatively painless, but what a nightmare of pushing and shoving chaos when it's busy. The hotels they put you up in are mediocre at best. Last week we enjoyed a long wait for the bus ride to the hotel, cold food when we arrived, and a nice hard bed to "sleep" in. We probably won't fly Ethiopian Air if we have to overnight in Addis Ababa again. I'm willing to pay up to fly another airline and skip the overnight as it's just not worth the hassle."

Pros: "The crew was Excellent"
Cons: "There is to many delays in the night flights, this should be improved."

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

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: "The arm rest was dismantled and had a sharp edge of metal which sliced my arm and thumb when I sat down. I was promised a new seat and never delivered. Horrendous."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Excellent seat"

Cons: "USB connection was not working from my seat"

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."

Cons: "There was a disruption with the audio system."

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: "Excellent service and on time performance."

Cons: "Unsufficent information about boarding ..I missed my flight I will never use this service again ... complete waste of time"

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: "But no in flight entertainment on the Addis to Tel Aviv leg"

Pros: "so good and comfortable"
Cons: "the plane was old though."

Pros: "Everything"

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: "We had requested vegetarian meals, which were not provided on either leg of the Ethiopian Airlines flight. In addition, we had to pay an extra baggage fee and the payment process required us to wait for 45 minutes at the check in desk while the agents tried to sort out a problem wiht their computer system. They claimed that the problem was with the integration of their system with SAA's system."

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"

Cons: "I've been flying Ethiopian airlines over the last four weeks to nine African countries and can give an overall excellent rating. They're always on time. They however showed the same movie on all flights. The food quality and variety also need to be improved. Thanks"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Good not that great - a suggestion - why not something like fresh bread (sandwiches) with cheese and tomato on it - bread often not so fresh"

Pros: "Flight crew was nice and responded to problems well. More trash pick up and water service would have been nice as it was a thirsty, long flight. I was given more water when asked it just wasn’t freely offered."
Cons: "The arrangement of the airport was disconcerting. To get to your gate you have to pass a another security point that you can not leave. The area was akin to a cattle yard. No bathroom, water, or amenities. You had to stay in your pen until boarding. Duty free was not allowed and had to be purchased on the plane for an additional cost. Not to mention the whole stopping in Dublin, Ireland for fuel without notice. There was nothing in my paperwork about it and we were only told to stay in our seats for the next hour or so while they refueled. We didn’t do that on the flight over was that was worrying and we were given no additional information."

Pros: "On the sequrity check our watch was stolen. And we did not get any help from ethiopian airlines...we would like to get help."

Pros: "gud space"
Cons: "Should be aware of the destination in terms of offering meals. very pathetic."

Pros: "The food served is awesome and sufficient. The flights are comfortable and the crew are friendly. My luggage came right on time and was properly handled"
Cons: "Well there was no entertainment in the flight. That is it"

Pros: "Comfortable, excellent service"
Cons: "Nothing - everything was fine."

Pros: "Everything Kosher food was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, from Customer Service, flight, baggage handling"

Pros: "Great service Seats slide forward, so comfy! Food and drinks all night On time Lots of luggage"
Cons: "No sleep with my baby!! ;)"

Cons: "Food can be improved."

Pros: "their business class was very good and a huge difference than economy, well done"
Cons: "the seat space is the smallest I have seen in economy. i took one sector economy and the other business. no blankets for guests"

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: "Excellent pre-boarding service to get aisle seats. Comfortable on time flights. Pleasant service."
Cons: "Bad service and follow through when luggage lost. Promised it would arrive that afternoon and given a tel number to call. Advised that I could not claim expenses for toiletries, basic necesssities. 1. Luggage did NOT arrive that afternoon 2. No reply to tel calls or got an automatic answering service. 3. No follow through to emails 4. Persistent phone calls at last elicited a response that luggage would arrive next morning - but unable to give a time 5. Luggage arrived late afternoon i.e. 2 full days later 6. I will put in a claim for toiletries, underwear, socks + taxi to get to shops"

Cons: "There was a four hour delay for departure!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Flight was smooth"

Pros: "Service & Staff"
Cons: "Toilets always get messy because there are many people flying for the first time and some using a public toilet (or even flush toilet) for first time ever. They need instructions in the bathroom for how to use the toilet, how to keep it clean, how to dispose of trash, how to flush toilet paper, etc. If fly all over the world, but every time I fly from Africa it's the same mess, regardless of airline. Simple instructions would help - they cannot assume all of their clients have used flush toilets when over 80% of Africans do not have them."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food was horrible. My TV didn't work and although I asked for it to be reset several times, the crew kept forgetting. The flight was supposed to be 9 hours, but we left late and it was 11+ hours. I understand things happen, but the crew gave no explanation for the delay or elongated flight. Last, but not least, when we landed in Newark we waited 2 hours for our luggage to come out. We landed at 9:50pm and didn't receive our baggage until 11:50pm. My friend and I were not even the last to get our bags. Overall this was the worst flight experience I've ever had."

Pros: "Tried to cancel charged anyway bad service"

Pros: "The short time it took to get to my destination. The great work done by flight attendants."
Cons: "The small seat I got."

Pros: "I liked that we didn't have any issues and didn't crash."
Cons: "Food is the SAME every time! Service was not great, skipped me twice on drinks and they seemed annoyed when I asked for a water and a water refill since the cups are so small. I get that its a quick flight and they have to finish before a certain time. But service for the people in the back should be the same as those in the front."

Cons: "Addis airport is a disaster, Really long queues and badly organised, Our flight left 20 minutes late and in turn made our landing 1 hour later. The flight attendants on Ethiopian air are very lazy, they dont respond to the service button been pushed, and their English is not that good,"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Played a kids movie... I don't even think there was a kid on the plane. Everything about this flight had me feeling i wouldn't want to fly on Ethiopian again. Bad experience. Same as the flight above. Terrible food."

Cons: "Other travelers kept walking through our aisle, which was not an aisle. Therefore I was constantly getting bumped in the middle of the night waking me up. This area needs to be roped off to make other passengers walk around as to not disturb people sitting in that row. I arrived at my destination completely exhausted due to lack of sleep. Ethiopian Air provides horrible service."
