But the most disappointing thing is the fact is that they LOST BOTH OF MY LUGGAGE BAGS, and the most they could offer me is $50 compensation (my belongings worth thousands of dollars) And even this I would have to claim from my “home country” which is completely unreasonable as my home country isn’t the one lost my luggage, the airlines had!

Pros: "The flight from Newark to Abidjan was pretty comfortable and smooth"
Cons: "Once in Abidjan, it became a mess. First we were left waiting for over an hour without any explanation. Then we were told that we had to retrieve our baggage and then recheck them. Hardly anyone spoke English so that was a long and confusing ordeal."
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."
Pros: "Helpful crew."
Pros: "Staff are friendly and pleasant. Seats are comfortable with more space than some airlines.Good choice of films."
Cons: "This was probably the worst boarding I have ever seen. They called the Paris flight while people were still boarding for Frankfurt. It was chaotic, with people struggling to find which line to be in. There was no visible guidance from Ethiopian ground crew. Eventually got in line. One guy checking boarding passes for both business and economy. Very slow with again no crowd control. Children were not given priority. Eventually many people went through business queue while others had been waiting in economy. Ground staff were standing around watching and not helping or communicating. Poor show from Ethiopian!"
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: "Always delaying, catastrophic food."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice. We received a hot lunch even though it was a short flight which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was interesting. It should have been an easy boarding as it is a small regional airport. Instead it seemed they went out of their way to make it as confusing as possible. Instead of going through security over here lets have you wrap around the hallway to just have to come back to where you were before?"
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding was fairly chaotic, there were no outlets for charging in the business class, entertainment limited."
Pros: "Plane was spacious and flight crew were nice"
Cons: "The fact that they confirmed that my luggage would make it to my final destination, and now that I arrived in dakar with no luggage it’s no longer there responsability"
Cons: "The experience from the airport to the plane to Lome was beyond troubling. If ever you are flying internationally from NYC, never fly from Newark New Jersey. Nevertheless, upon boarding the Ethiopian Airline flight to Lome that was supposed to depart at 9:15 pm, the courtesy of the flight attendants was a bit mundane. My mother and I sat on the plane for about an hour after the time of the depart before inquiring why we have no moved and the doors were closed. The flight attendant responded with, "We shall be moving shortly." The air conditioner was barely on. My mother is battling stage 3 Cancer and is an older woman so, I feared for the safety of her health in such a condition. About 30 minutes passed, and we inquired again. This time with a different flight attendant and she said she just did not know what was going on. Other people on the plane began to panic in a sense as well because like my mother and I, they too had a connecting flight to catch. The pilot did not inform the passengers of what was occurring. So, at this point, all passengers on flight ET509 had been sitting on the plane for an hour and a half. By the time we were sitting on the plane for 2 HOURS with the doors closed the pilot finally informed us that they were waiting for some paperwork. He did not apologize or give more information as to why we were sitting on the plane so long, with practically no AC, and weren't informed about when we would be pulling off. About 10 minutes later, the plane began backing up while people were still standing because they were restless with the wait especially when we had a 10-hour flight ahead of us. The pilot then got on the loudspeaker stating that we will be pulling in the air shortly and for the flight attendants to be seated. The pilot did not apologize for the inconvenience or state how long the flight would be or what time we would land in Lome, Togo. Once we were in the air, there were many safety hazards administered by both the crew and pilot. The seat belt safety information was not given, the exit areas in case of emergency were not discussed, what to do in case of an emergency, where certain equipment would be in case of illness or an emergency, and we were still not informed about the cause of the 2 hours and 15-minute delay. My mother and I consistently checked the flight tracker and it did not show the duration of our flight, our location while flying, no flight information was displayed and as hard working paying passengers we should have had all of the information and not have to continuously ask to get a slight answer. Also, I am a vegan and they did not have food for me. But there was a flight attendant who gave me extra fruit which I greatly appreciated. The flight coming back to Newark was decent, going was the major issue. I pray we are accommodated for these great inconveniences. Because to have spent almost $3,000 and receive this type of treatment is both saddening and disturbing to me."
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."
Pros: "Excellent food, very friendly and helpful crew e"
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work Limited storage place in business class for items like mobile devices etc"
Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."
Pros: "Food was pretty good. Flight attendants were very nice, however they didn’t do too much on a screaming baby that wouldn’t shut up the entire flight."
Cons: "Late take off from Newark led to us almost missing our connections to Johannesburg. We were moving like sheep herded to buses. Seemed very unorganized. The inflight entertainment was very basic compared to other star alliance flights in the states. Can’t understand the pilots very well when they spoke English. P"
Pros: "I was not allowed on the flight because I did not receive a confirmation email from Ireland airport even though I was never told I needed this."

Pros: "aircraft was nice and well kept, and crew friendly."

Cons: "Tray table was very dirty, restroom not cleaned or refilled, generally unkempt."

Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Not much. Will not fly them again."
Cons: "Poor service, poor airport facilies, old aircraft, very limited entertainment, fool was tasteless"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Customer service was horrible. Cancelled a trip within 24 hours of booking but put me through hours of waiting on the phone for assistance and still charged a 300 dollar fee. Our ticket was somehow suspended BY THEM so we had to call an office in a different country to unsuspeND then we were able to cancel. No help at all and kept dodging responsibility and forwarding the problem to other offices. Would book a different airline to avoid unneeded stress."
Pros: "They made sure we had plenty to eat"
Cons: "My entertainment system didn't work."
Pros: "Half empty plane was the best part of the flight."
