Pros: "WONDERFUL FLIGHTV"
Cons: "NONE"

Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful"
Cons: "We were so extremely delayed"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "I went for my honeymoon but ET never transported my luggage. I had to spend my honeymoon buying very expensive clothes and basic needs in Mauritius instead of relaxing. My luggage never came. I got it on my way back to Bamako. Nobody was even able to even trace my luggage or respond professionally on the phone. Out of hundreds of calls I made to them, they only picked up twice. ET screwed my honeymoon that I had planned for over a year. I'm so dissapointed that I don'y even want to claim reimbursement."
Cons: "Office in Bamako and apperently even in Nairobi never picks up the phone ! The only time they picked up (in Nairobi) they were rude!"

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 liked the crew. They are kind."
Cons: "The boarding in Addis was an absolute nightmare. No one could figure out where to go and when. Mombasa and Nairobi flight boarding was mixed. I've never seen anything like this. There was not enough room in the boarding area so everyone was pushing and shoving. I can't recommend Ethiopian airways to anyone after this experience."

Pros: "Seats, pillows, blankets, entertainment system, crew."

Pros: "Landing on time"
Cons: "Limited choice of food- no vegetarian options, only meat."

Pros: "The crew was professional yet very friendly. Everything was great. Enjoyed my trip"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Check-in staff at desk ,claiming not working for Ethiopian Airlines only providing service to Ethiopian Airlines therefore unable to in depth questions."

Cons: "Good service"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Airport facilities at Adis Ababa"

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: "I took a roundtrip to Addis Abeba, Ethiopia from Washington, DC. The trip was 13 hours there and 16 on the way back (I think that included a refueling stop in Dublin). There was plenty of food and beverages provided throughout the flight - usually every 3 hours or so. Blankets, pillows, and several movie/entertainment were provided."
Cons: "I would prefer the the main cabin lights be kept off longer."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "untrained staff, pathetic food very conjusted spacewise."

Pros: "Good food for a such a short trip to Nairobi."
Cons: "Boarding very confusing, gates changing and could barely hear through the PA system."

Cons: "The headphones weren’t working and boarding at Addis was very poor. They should have more personal when checking before the Gates"

Pros: "ET's on board crew is excellent. The food is great."
Cons: "Delay.....again."

Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it. Connecting flight left before we arrived to Addis Ababa. Customer service tried to encourage the thought that putting us on a different flight was a courtesy..."

Cons: "Checkin luggage did not get loaded onto the connecting flights at addis ababa. Had to wait two days for the next flight from addis ababa to gaborone botswana to receive our luggage. The ethiopian air office in gaborne was helpful straighteningbout the situation. I would fly ethiopian air again."

Pros: "Meal service plentiful. They kept the bathrooms very clean"
Cons: "This plane seemed older not as spacious or as clean as planes on Ethiopian I've traveled on before. Horrible film selections, and it's the same coming and going."

Pros: "Plane size, entertainment options and food were all great."
Cons: "The person next to me was rude and leaning over on my side but not much the airline can do about that."

Pros: "the air craft was very good and the comfort is good no complain..."
Cons: "i did'n't like some of the cabin crew the way they are ....and am very disappointed from kinshasa to my check in i did ask a lady about my bag, she told me i will get my bag to cape straight, and i did ask her two times about the bag, she keep saying the same thing i will get my bag to cape town, so until now i haven't find my bag yet, the number they gave me from the airport no body pic up the phone, so i don't know what i can i do to get my bag......if you can hep me in this mater please contact me on my email or on my cell number 0027 78 470 6195. thank you your best regards."

Pros: "After a bit of confusion in ADD airport, we reached the terminal where my connecting flight was leaving from. Terminal 1 of ADD airport should be avoided at all costs! Boarding and the flight crew did a admirable and top job and made the difference for me."
Cons: "Terminal 1 Disgusting. Rundown, embarrassing, chaos everywhere and no real sense of security. No police or security presence. You could just walk right into a gate! I was shocked to see this especially being from NYC. If you can avoid Terminal 1 do so. The seats were DISGUSTING! Dirty, warped fabric seating was dirty and caked on. Smelled and many seats were visually broken. I'm glad I brought with me some Clorox wipes to wipe my area down with. You get what you pay for but wow! I would not spend my money on this airline again."

Pros: "Sleeping most of the way"

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: "See above."
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived 20 minutes faster than scheduled. I usually order Kosher meal and enjoyed the food. Unfortunately the Kosher meal they started to serve recently is the WORST food I have had on board. Please avoid the KOSHER!"

Pros: "Ok"

Cons: "The waiting time for the connecting flight to was far too long...."

Cons: "Lack of customer service. Due to the delay in Washington, we missed our connecting flight. Though the EA personnel knew of our delay and missed flight, we still had to wait in line at the counter for 3 hours in order for them to put us up in a hotel and make other arrangements. Though they had 15 hours to do this for us, they did not. They served some customers and did not serve others. There was no communication whatsoever, they just handed us papers without explaining what was happening."

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: "Long flight but comfortable. Pleasant crews"

Cons: "Horrible food selection, needs improvement"

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

Pros: "They flight was on time."
Cons: "The food is poor. They should change the menu and improve on the quality of food. The personal entertainment system was not working. Such a long flight need to have good entertainment for passengers."

Pros: "We are so tired of showing up our passports many times in the ethiopian air lines. Overall we had a very good trip and the crews were so nice."

Cons: "same flight crew"

Pros: "The service inside"
Cons: "At Addis the waiting room was so crowded and did not understand the announcemnets."

Cons: "boarding announcements difficult to understand toilets not kept clean - not enough for size of plane stewards just OK - understaffed for a full 787 food mediocre - definitely better on other carriers to Africa spent 21 hrs in one plane from JRO to IAD in part caused by a 5 hr mechanical repair in Dublin pilot lead us to believe repair would be quick but it wasn't overall my worst international flight out of several dozen I will not fly Ethiopian Air again"

Pros: "this part of the flight was not a pleasant one. the crew kept passing me over no matter how much I called. but they seemed more attentive to their native people (Ethiopian) because they spoke the same language. this was frustrating, the entertainment did not work for the entire flight, thank God I had my Bible to read...."

Pros: "Comfortable seats - but a bit of confusion for my family."
Cons: "My 3 year old son was originally placed away from the rest of our family. Obviously we were not going to allow that. Our 1 year old was to have access to a sleeping carriage but to fix the problem with our sons seat they moved the rest of us to the center of the plane. (A spot with no carriage placement). This was not resolved - and we ended up holding our daughter for 17 hours."

Cons: "I was served the same food repeatedly over the more than 20 hours flight from Douala to washington Please introduce varieties. I flew Ethopian in August 205, in February 2016 and in April 2016 and the films were not updated Also introduce more business audio books for listening."

Cons: "At Nairobi had to carry bags down steps. no bus for transit. Had to go to arrivals and take bus back. Also wanted to take later flight same day but change fee too high."

Pros: "Wine in economy class shows consideration to coach travellers. I am asking the crew to continue to be professional and continue to show genuine caring attitude to travellers."
Cons: "Boarding in Addis atill does not make sense. Passengers fight just to end up on the same bus."
