Cons: "3 hour delay in take off on Riyadh - Doha sector. No food was served while we waited in the plane to take off. There was no definitive time given for take off during the three hour wait in the plane."

Pros: "Overall, an excellent short flight. I was flying with oversize luggage (bicycle), which is offer a hassle. The ticket agent took care of it without issue, and it arrived safely. Food was OK. I would try Qatar for a long flight if the opportunity arises."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Everyone just queued up instead of using zones, etc."

Pros: "The food you serve is good! We also appreciated the little gray packs of toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, etc. that you shared. The staff is very professional, and we enjoyed our flight,. We enjoyed the "quiet room" in the airport."
Cons: "I had a little trouble with the dvd monitor."

Pros: "The trip was very pleasant as usual, being frequent flyer on Qatar airways since 2005, I can only tell that this is so far the best airline company. Great service. On time if not ahead Never lost a bag or got it delayed. Very diversified entertainment program Lovely staff Confortable and clean flights. And of course convenient price. Briefly, I love Qatar Airways and it is my first choice wherever I travel."
Cons: "So far nothing."

Pros: "Flight was good. Cabin crew very good. Food good."
Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am. Long queues,very slow to move, police checking passports unbelievably slowly. Retina scanners should speed up the process. Why then take 5 minutes to check each passport? Poor advert for Qatar, after nearly an hour of queuing I would think most passengers wished they had gone somewhere else."

Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."

Pros: "Boarding on time. Crew was very nice except food option."
Cons: "My wife didn't get veg food she is looking for. We asked crew and they said they don't have."

Cons: "As I missed this connection flight we were re routed to Cairo then Larnaca. We landed at 6:30pm and didn't get to our hotel until 8:30. Missed my friends wedding. It was a disaster. As a Qatar airway member I feel let down and am disappointed with the lack of interest shown by the airline in relation to an apology of any kind. What can be done about it. I've booked a trip to be a part of my friends special day and instead get to the reception as guest start leaving. I also get fined from the car hire company as they cancelled our hired car due to a no show and have ended up with a less inferior car as that's all they had left. No real apology given si is like to know what are you doing about it?"

Pros: "Some touch screen tv didn't work and some old style tv the audio didn't work. Flying 22hours like this can be difficult."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The flight was delayed, i had only 2 hours connection in Chicago for an international flight, they asked passengers to NOT panic and do not ask if they didn't call a passenger name. They will call passengers who would miss thier connection for accommodation otherwise you are safe. Unfortunately I didt ask since they didn't call me, when I reached the gate from Chicago, it was closed."

Pros: "Minus the food incident below most of the staff were very professional and courteous."
Cons: "I ordered a bland meal not knowing it would be fish, which I'm allergic to, and when asked if I could have something else, the steward did not even attempt to find me or offer me another meal, so I went without one. I had an almost 12 hour flight with no food, that was disappointing to say the least."

"Good and efficient service. Food quality was poor though. Also, my seat hadn't been cleaned from previous flight (pocket still full of gargbage)."

"Stay away from flights going through Lome if that is not your final destination. The agents at the Accra airport are also thieves. They held onto my boarding pass for my upgraded ticket which I paid an extra $800; untill I paid $260. for excess baggage, when I was entitled to 3 free because of my upgraded ticket. I could have kept my economy seat and paid only $260, instead I paid $1060!. The agent held onto my boarding pass untill I had paid and had only 20 minutes to clear TSA. Pleasw do not fly Ethiopian Air via Lome to Ghana!!!!. You will regret this very e expensive experience."

Cons: "Poor communication"

Pros: "Crew and stewardess were fantastic"
Cons: "Bathrooms needed cleaning on the long trip from Addis Ababa to Houston! They were nasty because guys can’t seem to hit the hole. So there was urine on seat and on floor."

Cons: "cramped boarding space and Addis airport. Inadequate space for volume of traffic. Capital investment in expansion required if Ethiopian to compete!"

Pros: "Take off was quick, as well as deplaning"
Cons: "the little cornbread cake was pretty bad."

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

Cons: "Online check in was not possible. The check in and boarding process took more than two hours and there was no order."

Pros: "New aircraft with comfortable business seats"
Cons: "More than 4 hours delay! Not all selection from food menu available"

Pros: "We had a ridiculously tight transit, arriving in Addis Ababa 20 minutes before our Madrid flight was meant to depart, and I was amazed by the outstanding support and assistance provided by the ground staff. Every single person who was meant to make the connecting flight did—and our luggage did too!"

Pros: "Flight Crew were great"
Cons: "The baggage and checking in process. Better training did on the checking in crew for international flight baggage, one one person knew what the requirements are."

Cons: "No Gin & Tonic Bus transfer to airplane for international flight? Twice...?"

Pros: "Seats small uncomfortable"
Cons: "Bigger seats."

Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "reduce on the spices in the food or provide different options."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "they woke me up in the middle of the night to give me food.."

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."

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

Pros: "I like the crew of Ethopian Airlines, they are very friendly & attentive. Flight was delayed but not by AE fault. We made up most of the time & arrived only 15 minutes behind schedule"
Cons: "It was all good"

Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Attendants were courteous and the spacing is better than some airlines, but that’s about it."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster: no logical control of 100s of people; delayed on the tarmac for 1:45 for a “minor technical reason” that apparently had nothing to do with the actual operation of the plane that prevented me from making my next flight. Food was terrible. Flight attendants could have been more helpful about my missed connection."

Cons: "That the Airline choose to take Russsian paid load, cargo. And decided to off load the Luggage of 25 passengers. Some of them even had connecting Flights. Luggage tags were not matching with the names, so it became difficult to actually track the bags. Not funny..."

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

Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "Old plane. Not comfortable for a relatively long flight"

Pros: "Nightmare , I am separated from my baggage since 28/Feb. until now and the airline is incapable of providing the real status of my baggage."

Cons: "the layover in Dublin was too long--longer than scheduled"

Pros: "Nothing - decades behind other Airlines."
Cons: "Everything. Terrible old plane, bad food (made me violently ill), bole airport is depressingly bad and unorganised, boarding is like lucky dip... my seat was broken on the plane. It was an exit and still so uncomfortable. Never again..."

Cons: "The crew kept on supplying 3 passengers with beer and wine, who obviously had too much to drink already and were obnoxiously loud and disturbing the flight."

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

Cons: "Price. Ease of early checkin"

Pros: "Like the online check in and quick bag drop at the aiport"
Cons: "Food could have been much better with less processed foods"

Pros: "The aircraft was brand new so everything was great"

Pros: "Prior seating options, friendly air hostess, and vegan meal options."
Cons: "Flight from U.S had frequent meals, flight to Ghana had a sandwich and meal, and the time in between the two was extremely long, after been up extremely early to depart. It would also be awesome to have Ethiopian meal option, like injere"

Cons: "Check in was a mess in Ethiopia."

Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff. New aircraft !!!"
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)"

Cons: "Please have a vegetarian option that does not contain cheese."

Pros: "Excellent chicken dish"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The airline never gave us any status updates.Call center was helpless. Eventually bought a same day ticket at 5X the price on another airlines get out. before visa expired. Now they don't want to refund my ticket saying I am a no show..What a horrible airline"

Pros: "The food. And the on board entertainment. Staff was also nice but a little bit sloppy and slow."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. No information was given on this. Also,Addis adaba is not a tier 1 Airport. I'd rather pay the same. Money to go through Qatar or dubai."

Pros: "The food. And the on board entertainment. Staff was also nice but a little bit sloppy and slow."
Cons: "."
