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."

Cons: "Old flight - equipments were not in order like the handrest was broken, TV’s were broken and not functioning, touch screens failed to react to touch, signs on buttons at the handrest were smudged. 3 out of 6 washrooms in Economy class were not working. At one instance I was locked in the washroom as the door was not opening from inside, until I had to call the attendant. Entertainment options were limited. Food was below average. In one of my meals I got opened and melted butter. Cabin crew was not responding to the calls when I needed water. I finally got it after ringing 4 bells and 45 minutes. Overall, a terrible experience and would not choose to fly with Ethiopian again."

Food was horrible on both flights"

Pros: "The staff on Ethiopian airlines is great. Food was palatable."
Cons: "Boarding from the front and back of the plane is a terrible idea, especially when the gate agents allow most of the aircraft to board at the same time. Also, on flights longer than three hours, they should use a plane with more entertainment (bigger plane). It was cramped and uncomfortable both legs."
Pros: "Was a bit concerned because I only had a 45 min layover in Addis to change plans, howeve Ethiopian Air made sure we were met coming of the plane and facilitated a fast transit. Checked luggage also all made it through. I was pleasantly surprised. I flew Nairobi to Cape Town with connection in Addis."
Cons: "The waiting time for the connecting flight to was far too long...."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, airport staff doing a great job, cabin crew friendly, entertainment just okay."
