The service available is amazing 🤩
I know this is Africa but the plane seats could be more comfortable
Cons: "Poor communication"
Pros: "Nothing noteworthy was done well."
Cons: "The boarding staff is incompetent resulting in a 2+ hour boarding time. No control or concern for boarding zones, multiple unnecessary and inconsistent ticket checks, and unclear process. If you took 300 toddlers, made 50 of them gate agents and said board an airplane, you would get about the same result. Food and crew in flight were mediocre. Entertainment system in the seat back doesn’t work, shuts off in the middle of films, and is for some reason controlled by the wrong arm rest. I was in the aisle seat, my arm rest control panel did not control anything, but every time my neighbor shifted her arm it changed the volume on my system. Ethiopian airlines is what failure looks like."
Cons: "The cabin crew had masks to protect themselves I think against the threat of Coronavirus. We passengers did not have them. It looked awkward. How about if instead of handing out headsets they gave passengers masks?! Overall I enjoy ET."
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: "Friendly crew. Excellent check-in. Priority bags came off first."
Cons: "Chicken was undercooked. No power outlets."
Cons: "They know better than me"
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: "Airport Addis Ababa is chaos."
Pros: "The flight was four hours delayed in Djibouti and there was absolutely zero, NO communication, whatsoever, provided by the Djibouti Ethiopian Airlines staff what was going on, how long the flight was going to be delayed, or if it was actually complete canceled for that evening."
Cons: "Flight ET365 was scheduled to leave Djibouti at 19:00 but did not leave until 23:30, without any screen information or by the Ethiopian Airlines staff at JIB airport how long the delay would be or if the flight was completely cancelled. Extremely unprofessional and ignorant handling of the situation"
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: "The crew practically ignored my request for medical aid. They were not friendly and super occupied. The seats were too uncomfortable."
Cons: "The food could have been better and the crew attention and assistance to the passengers."
Pros: "The crew was okay, though a little bit occupied and thus ignoring some of the customers' requests. The seats are comfortable and spacious with enough leg room"
Cons: "The food could have been better. Honestly much better"
Pros: "But no in flight entertainment on the Addis to Tel Aviv leg"
Pros: "good onboard service"
Pros: "the flight was very nice and I thank all the crew for their kindness."
Pros: "Excellent airline overall Great seats for sleeping"
Cons: "Business class seats are not well appointed Nowhere to put a bottle of water - storage handbag and shoes etc could not be reached without undoing the seatbelt and screen far away from the seat Voice commentary was muffled and therefore unable to be heard"
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: "I received flying miles for this flight, well actually I really tried to find something positive to say"
Cons: "spent 19+ hrs in the airport in Addis Abeba, when I was supposed to be transferred to a hotel, needless to say, the airport at night is not the best place a woman would like to spend her time."
Cons: "Lack of communication. The flight was delayed and boarding was very chaotic due to poor communication."
Pros: "I have only flown one better airline.....Emirates. The crew service was unbelievable. Wonderful experience. I have a new primary international travel carrier!"
Pros: "The crew was professional yet very friendly. Everything was great. Enjoyed my trip"
Pros: "Check-in staff at desk ,claiming not working for Ethiopian Airlines only providing service to Ethiopian Airlines therefore unable to in depth questions."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding was fairly chaotic, there were no outlets for charging in the business class, entertainment limited."
Cons: "Lost my bags, missed two connections due to delays, took a bus home instead"
Cons: "Your cheapo ripoff insurance wouldn't pay when I had to cancel due to terrorism threats in and around Ouagadougou. Is there ever a better reason to cancel a flight?!"
Pros: "USB plug, nice TV/ entertainment"
Pros: "Other than the luggage issue, it was a great flight."
Cons: "I purchased this ticket as ONE ticket--Ethiopian Air to Dubai, and then flydubai to Amman. Ethiopian Air wouldn't check my luggage to my final destination, so in Dubai, for a 3 hour layover, I had to go through immigration, exchange money, and take a taxi for 30 minutes through rush-hour traffic to a different terminal. That is ridiculous. Don't sell it as one ticket if the two airlines won't cooperate together."
Pros: "you r best of the best"
Cons: "stoping in irland only"
Pros: "Check-in and Boarding took forever. Cabin was very warm and passengers around me were extremely loud, practicallly yelling. Considering the flight was 3 AM, this was not appreciated."
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: "The Ethiopians have got the transit sorted in Addis. I had a tight turnaround time of about an hour and 15 minutes. From alighting to boarding and takeoff was about 1 hour. Very impressed that my luggage made it as well."
Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport very crowded with no seat available for five hour stopover. Food outlets limited"
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and they fed you several times"
Cons: "-changed flight schedule several times after booking ticket -3/4 segments were delayed causing me to miss connections - staff unaware of procedures -several mechanical problems with plane -still do not have bags after 7 days -no compensation provided for inconvenience -poor customer service"
Pros: "Flight was delayed over two hours, because of shortage of aviation fule causing delay in fuelling aircraft"
Cons: "food, service"
Cons: "I ordered a vegan food. The crew had difficulties in delivering this simple thing"
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."
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."
Cons: "Staff showing ignorance on "checking-in once for one trip", say from Abidjan to Blantyre. They kept me waiting but with little help."
Pros: "Comfortable airline but on the small side. It was perfect for the price."
Cons: "Kosher food was poor. I know there are higher quality options from Israel, Johannesburg, Frankfurt, etc. This meal was from Antwerp and was not nice at all."
Cons: "Over 6 hours delay on the first leg of the trip and 20 hours delays on the second leg. All this with no communication/transparency about what was going on."
Cons: "Over 6 hours delay on the first leg of the trip and 20 hours delays on the second leg. All this with no communication/transparency about what was going on."
Pros: "Everything I liked it bravo 👏👏"
Cons: "Everything good job 👏"
Pros: "The crew really was excellent! Superb landing. I didnt feel a bump."
Cons: "It was a great flight! I could have been upgraded to business class but other than that...superb"
Cons: "Filthy bathrooms upon boarding. Terrible food and TVs didn’t work. No help with issues from gate staff and no help upon calling their customer service. Would never use this airline again."
Cons: "no communication about delays. lost my luggage. Left JFK without the kids strollers, car seat, and bags!"
Pros: "Plane was decent enough"
Cons: "Nightmare at boarding: The agents did not control the boarding process. Business Class was not allowed to board first, it was a total mess."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle. There was no rhyme or reason and that led to it taking forever. The flight staff were rude and not very responsive. Among many things, they ran into a nearby elderly passengers seat several times with food/beverage carts and did not apologize."
Cons: "the food was awful, electric plugs didn't work, bathrooms were not cleaned before flight -very filthy. My seat was broken and wouldn't recline. Not to mention a 3 hr delay"
Pros: "Great crew! The food was good. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit unorganized"
Pros: "The pilot flew very fast to make up for time lost."
Cons: "We boarded late at casa. Very unconfortable."
Pros: "New plane and good pilot - smooth take off/landing"
Cons: "Delayed departure, long boarding process, and unfortunately my entertainment system was not working"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 7 hours, the flight crew never arrived, communication was nonexistent. I missed my connection in Rome and have now lost a lot of money for car rental, hotel that I can’t use tonight."
Cons: "We were late at Casablanca airport again late when we landed at jfk so I was late for 2 hours so I missed my transit from jfk to Philadelphia I struggled the whole to get home"
Pros: "very bad not clean sting like bad smell in the flight"
Cons: "So many delays, we’ve spent nearly 12 hours waiting in airports and are stuck in Casablanca.."
Pros: "Terrible customer service. There was a huge difference between the crew from my trip sep1st ti this time. Crew never bring you something you ask for and they just say yes and you never see them again. I asked for a tea refill and the guy said ok let me check if there is enough to give refill and never got back to me. I asked the other attendant for a cup of water and took over 45min and I had to go ask for it by myself and got the water like if I am receiving gold. I will never go back with Royal sirMoran. I barely understood why people always complain about this company.."
Cons: "entrainment, comfort and music."
Cons: "The flight we originally booked was cancelled."
Pros: "The crew is nice. And I feel bad for them because everything else is terrible. They have to deal with a lot of upset people."
Cons: "Very poor communication about delays and arrivals and cancelations. Not reliable at all. Be prepared to have to travel for 2 days and good luck catching your connecting flight. They are short staffed on pilots so they are over worked. The plane was a disaster very dirty, loud, and two fights broke out. I couldn't even sleep to turn my brain off. No entertainment either."
Cons: "Boarding was horrendous. The flight was so delayed but no one updated us on the status. It caused many people (including me) to miss connecting flights at Casablanca. Terrible communication. And they aren’t helpful at all even when they completely screw up your travel plans."
Pros: "Everything about the airline and flight were smooth and fine"
Cons: "Because we bought from JustFly through Kayak we couldn’t reserve seats until we got to the ticket agent. We were given seats all over the plane, mostly middle seats"
Cons: "Once again, there were some issues because I am pregnant. There was continued confusion and duplication with the release of liability forms, and then there was an unfortunate incident wherein my water was taken away prior to the boarding area with a promise that I could get more in the boarding area. This turned out not to be the case. Luckily, there was a very kind staff person who ran onto the plane and retrieved a bottle of water for me, but this should not be the policy."
Cons: "The timing but nothing one could do because of connections to London."
Pros: "I like every thing except the baggage handling."
Cons: "I left my luggage at JFK and I can't get someone to help me how will I get my luggage, because I live in Philadelphia. I want to know when I can come to get my luggage, because I live far from New York, but I can't get no body on the phone. I don't want to come and your office is not open, that means I will spend for nothing. I came on the 20th of April from Casablanca and arrived at JFK at about 6:20PM. Can someone contact me. My name is Mulbah Seekeh Jallah."
Pros: "Aircraft and service"
Cons: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "friendly service, excellent food, wonderful, safe landing"
Cons: "trip of 26 February was cancelled and no one informed me.I was in the airport with my luggage waiting for another trip. customer service was not existent and inefficient .from 26 February until the 2 of march ,hotels and taxi took all my money. Friday the 2 march I took the fly from Tunis to Casablanca: boarding was with delay more than 60 minutes .food was mediocre and fade and comfort is a matter of chance."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants. I had a great flight:)"
Pros: "Good food, incredibly hospitable staff."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive to JFK. We landed on Saturday, 1/27, and there is still no update.... It had expensive rugs and gifts and spices plus more."
Cons: "The flight was 2hours late"
Cons: "agent was very rude, told me I will be on waiting list, no seats. don't overbook your flight"
Pros: "Trip was fine, helpful crew on airplane, and comfortable but very delayed boarding."
Cons: "Boarding didn't begin until the time that the flight was scheduled for take-off."
Cons: "They canceled my flight forcing me to leave my vacation a day early with not even a 24 hrs notice. This resulted in me losing out on money that I had already spent on tickets, the place we were staying, parking my car etc."
Cons: "The crew members need to learn customer service and be polite to clients."
Pros: "Not much to like other than i didn't miss my flight"
Cons: "Boarding was a nogjmare. Crew guy tried to make us check in our hand luggage. Not sure why. And we left later than expected."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and comfortable. Entertainment was excellent, as there was a big screen in front of younworh plenty of enterta on it. Food was as expected."
Cons: "Information flow from the airline is lacking. I was at my gate 4 hours early. I almost missed my flight because there was no announcement that the gate changed. When I ran to the right gate, they said that they announced the change, but I am not sure where. I was able to still get in board and everything worked out."
Pros: "clean, safe ride, friendly staff, flight departed and left on time."
Pros: "I liked that I had an aisle seat."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew lied to everyone and told them that the bathrooms were closed before takeoff, but they chose who could use the bathroom, and we took off an hour late. Not good. The quality of the sound on the televisions is also very poor. And there was only one option for food."
Cons: "Was not given meal requested"
Cons: "Royal Air Maroc decided to combine two flights. This created a lot of confusion at the airport as we waited for a new flight number before going through security. All of the passengers were confused because we weren't sure which flight number to use for the gate -- now that an additional stop was added to the itinerary. While all of the crew were courteous and helpful, the overall operation was confusing resulting in unnecessary stress. No food service offered, even water."
Pros: "Food was good, crew were attentive, entertainment good, left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Royal Air Maroc refused to accommodate a name change on ticket a few days after purchase (and more than a month before the flight) where it was clear there was a glitch in their system- same named passenger listed twice. There should be other identifiers such as birth date or passport number requested, so this glitch would not end up costing the passenger more than $400 to rebook same flight."
Pros: "Punctual leg of the trip."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding, old plane. Rude service."
Pros: "The boarding time was swift and quick"
Cons: "There are no entertainment on board the chairs don't recline properly"
Pros: "Plane was empty and trip was comfortable."
Cons: "They need more movie options and shouldn't edit everything."
Pros: "The food was just okay."
Cons: "Boarding at CMN was the most disorganized mess I have EVER seen with people just jumping in wherever they felt like it and the gate attendants chatting, giggling and taking their time. The air on the plane was not up enough so it was incredibly HOT the entire flight. In fact, there was a baby across the aisle screaming the entire flight because she was overheating. The crew did nothing to help the situation and were only around to deliver food/drinks and that was about it. There was no entertainment so that made the flight even more unbearable. I have asthma and am allergic to cigarette smoke and someone was CLEARLY smoking on board the plane somewhere but the crew did nothing about that either. The crew was significantly more rude on this leg from CMN to CKY and I am not sure if they feel this is acceptable because of their destination but I can tell you that it is NOT! Everyone on board is a paying customer and deserves the same respect. Also, please do not assume that everyone on board speaks the same 2 languages."
Pros: "No ticet was issued , I buy new ticet in the air port for almost dbul the price witch it was very bad experience & I proumece you I will never use kayak again and I will till all my frind if I did not have rebly from you"
Pros: "Flight was on time, and there was an open middle seat between my seatmate and me, giving us a little extra space."
Cons: "Rudeness and disorderliness of security staff in transit area. Airline needs to work with airport to better organize flow. Would not choose to transit at Casablanca airport if I didn't have to."
Pros: "Should have followed the poor reviews. They took my carry on luggage and lost it. Got the runaround treatment when I call with wait times of 2 hrs. Then eventually when you get someone, they tell you it's your responsibility to go to the various airports and check for your luggage. My 1 month vacation was ruined as a result bc I lost some priceless items and my IT lab workbook which I needed crucially for some work. On my way back thru Morocco, I was told at the airport to go to their main office in down town casablanca. Then here in the US, getting told different things only to end uo with a 1800 number that no one picks up. Horrid customer service!"
My Ethiopian flight was cancelled without Kayak informing me. I found out through my sister who picked the same flight via Expedia. When i informed Kayak, they failed to put me on another flight…stating they are waiting to hear back from Ethiopia airlines. After receiving no response for 2 weeks, I asked Kayak for a refund. And again, no response. Thus, I had to call my credit card company to dispute the transaction. Thank you chase for being understanding. However, I DO NOT recommend flying with Ethiopian airlines or booking through Kayak. Terrible customer service especially when it entails refunding people their money.
Cons: "The entertainment console doesn’t work"
Pros: "Keep up the good work"
Cons: "Flight Delay."
Cons: "This is my first time traveling these airlines and I promise you it’s the last.. the plane had no option to plug my cell phone, no WiFi, not even a screen to watch movies (7 something hours flight).. I was served a loaf of bread cut in half with some spices inside as a meal! But the most horrible part is the fact once landed I found out the lost both of my luggage bags, and All they told me was I’m entitled of an allowance of $50.. tried hard not to laugh as my 50 kg of belongings worth thousands of dollars.. beyond disappointed, aggravated and shocked. Contacting my lawyer in the morning. Do not fly with them!"
Pros: "I like everything"
Cons: "Nothing better everything is very good"
Cons: "Please the flight time for connecting in Lome needs to be improved!!!! It's highly stressful for a passenger to be in another country where they don't speak the local language and have to be shuffling to connect to a flight within less than 10 minutes. Any Ethiopian airline connecting flight needs to have at least a 45 minutes gap."
Pros: "Crew very caring and respectful"
Cons: "For me I don’t see any problem with the airline at all. Everything was superb"
Pros: "I like everything"
Pros: "Convenient flight....surprisingly very nice airports ( Dakar, Abidjan and Lomé). The schedule was very tight to make my connection in Lome since the flight made a stop at Abidjan and then on to Lomé."
Cons: "Based on the price and convenience I really have no complaints. The only area I would improve is the inflight restroom. The door was broken and didn’t close and the inside was quite filthy and the toilet didn’t flush."
Cons: "Expensive Items were stolen from my checked luggage"
Cons: "Overall good but old plane with limited services for entertainment I did not eat but my neighbour did and it looked pretty goo"
Cons: "Getting my luggage on time"
Cons: "Slight delay by grounds staff to clear flight for take off"
Pros: "It was excellent trip"
Pros: "Very average experience."
Cons: "Very average experience."
Pros: "Staff here are excellent"
Cons: "Seats a bit old"
Pros: "Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Boarding staff/check-in staff don't know anything about the 'visa volant' visa on arrival for Kinshasa and thought I was making it up. Nearly refused to let me board."
Cons: "The flight attendant took a picture of my passport. I filed a complaint but I have yet to hear back with result."
Cons: "The transition too long"
Cons: "Missed flight due to wrong booking information which showed flight departing at 12:00 noon; upon arrival for check-in, was informed flight departed at 10:30 am"
Cons: "I did not like the flight both ways! Going to Lagos from Lome, the aircraft had no air conditioning, we were stuffed and backed close to two hours. On boarding took close to 45 minutes. Aircraft looked like a jalopy Going to Lome, the crew was rude, they should have acknowledged the passengers been baked in the sun before boarding. Tragic!!!"
Pros: "Left on time..smoot flight..good landing"
Cons: "No snacks but I Iunderstand it's just a 35 minutes flight."
Cons: "It all started at the check point at Newark airport. While checking into my flight I noticed that the transit Time in Lomé was only 40 mns, so made it a point to ensure if my luggage would make it with me to Dakar. So upon arrival in Lome and as I suspected, I was rushed through the gate as the last passenger. Hence I asked the boarding agent again if my suitcases are on the plane: yes ma’am just get on the plane. Now I land in Dakar with no suitcases and no way of knowing when they will arrive. The staff were rude and unapologetic, plus they ask me to come back to the airport to collect my luggage when it gets here.UNBELIEAVABLE"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "I travel Asky often due to limited carriers. They are constantly late."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Chairs looked very dirty and old."
Pros: "The flight was quick and left on time."
Cons: "The crew was too rigid, the plane was stuffy and old, and the food was stale."
Pros: "Quick service. Boarding was on time. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Appearance of the plan seems old and could use some renovation."
Pros: "The short connecting flight."
Cons: "Virtually everything about the boarding process was disorganized. We were met by Asky staff shouting out names to hand over our boarding passes for the connecting flight. The flight was well over two hours late (for a 40-minute flight, this was frustrating and completely unexplained by the crew). We had to be transported by bus to the plane and that was another hour-long process with very little apology from the overworked and overwhelmed staff. Ethiopian Airlines and ASKY appears to be a bargain in terms of price but I would be highly unlikely to use them in the future after such a disappointing introduction. I’m sure they lost several dozen repeat clients because of the disorganized nature of their transfers from Newark and the nonchalant attitude of their staff. I would not recommend this, especially for elderly and disabled passengers or families with young children."
Cons: "I just learned from the airport that carry on bags are 7 kgs only. Since I had my computer in it I was forced to hold it in my hands."
Pros: "Am impressed with d service, flight smoothes, and d crew members. Both at check-in and on board. Keep up d good job."
Cons: "Having to walk on tarmac to board d plane. There should always be a walk way connector that connects d airplane to d airport terminal. Thanks"
Pros: "friendly, clean; also snacks!"
Cons: "turbo-pro, and unexpected stopover in Abidjan on previous flight to bamako."
Pros: "The staff was helpfull"
Cons: "The fact that u have to walk to a different part of the airport to pay for excess luggage. Getting the the pos system didn't work. Smh. Had to look for my bank and make a tf to a sky. Shame and waste of time."
Pros: "The food was good"
Pros: "The flight itself was quick and pretty stress-free. It wasn't a full flight so there was space for everyone to comfortably spread out. An okay experience overall. It the human interaction with the staff and customer experience could use some improvement."
Cons: "Checking in Took 45 minutes for whatever reason. The ground staff were really slow with the process. They also made me check in my small carry-on bag due to their frankly inconsistent carry-on regulation (I saw many other passengers on board with 2 or 3 sizeable pieces and the flight wasn't even close to being nearly full)."
Pros: "Boarding and crew was very efficient !"
Cons: "There was not enough legroom and also elbow room. Seating in the middle seat was a terrible experience."
Pros: "Excellent care from ticketing to the cabin crew. The fact that our connecting flight in Lome taking us to Lagos waiting for our arrival made it even better."
Cons: "This is the same plane I took business class from Sao Tome to Lisbon. Overnight. 7 hours. No entertainment. No lay flat or fully reclining seats. OK for a 2 hour flight. Unacceptable otherwise."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very much on the fair side and helpful"
Cons: "My flight to Lagos was overbooked, I was at the airport in plenty of time for check in. When I arrived, I was told my reservation was sold. I had to go to a roach motel, paid to stay there, and left the next day on long flight with 2 stops and a lay over, instead of a direct flight to Lagos. I was never reimbursed for my wasted time or hotel fees I had to pay. They all spoke French, I do not."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very polite and professional"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "It's good. Will fly again with them"
Cons: "The itinerary changed drastically and we cancelled our flights."
Pros: "The service, food, and logistics were all mediocre. The flight there wasn't bad, but there was also nothing I would recommend."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew seemed confused the entire time and had no structure as to how to coordinate the flight."
Cons: "Bathroom has no lock, seats are broken, attendants don't care where you sit causing confusion. They also change luggage amount last minute. Avoid company. Flisghts should be cheaper"
