Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Way more leg room than I expected. The crew was very nice, the announcements were made in 3 languages, which was nice for the non-Amharic speakers!"
Cons: "Boarding in Lomé took a long time, which I believe made us a little later at the airport. Not sure if that is something fixable or not"
Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth flight :)"
Pros: "WONDERFUL FLIGHTV"
Cons: "1. Make duty free shopping possible. My daughter, that I was traveling withl, loved some jewellery l wanted to buy for her but it was not possible because a credit card purchase was impossible. 2. Provide entertainment on board. Flight from Lusaka to Addis was excellent. But nothing to Nairobi"
Pros: "Yes.seat was just ok but not quiet comfortable"
Cons: "I think Ethiopian is reasonably good.I travelled to Seattle via delhi .from delhi to sea I travelled by Ana the reason was the fare of Ethiopian (Enugu to Seattle,round trip)was much higher and also you spend 37 hours before u reach your destination,it is too long.why can't u fly to usa direct ,then"
Cons: "The most unprofessional ground staff I have met coupled with the most disorganised airport"
Pros: "Flight and crew"
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"
Pros: "the flight was very nice and I thank all the crew for their kindness."
Pros: "I liked the services of the air hostess: they were very polite. The flight was also very comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "The person who gives information should speak the English language portion slowly and clearly for better understanding of passengers"
Pros: "Staff was pretty helpful and you could mostly get what you needed if you didn't mind going back to the galley for it."
Cons: "Boarding was literally unsafe (too many people going down an escalator into too small an area). Terribly bland food. Buttons on the seat rest too easy to push accidentally (for things like the light or to call a flight attendant)."
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: "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."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Aircraft and business seat just medium Food quite as fast-food service"
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The food"
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."
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: "we booked this flight because it was the shortest. However, we received an email a few days ago saying that the flight on the way back changed and the layover has increased from 2h to almost 7h! this is very upsetting since Im pregnant and the bring such a ling time at the Addis airport really ruined my flight experience"
Cons: "untrained staff, pathetic food very conjusted spacewise."
Cons: "Food was served to passengers from seat row 30 and beyond very late. About twenty minutes to landing In Addis so passengers were forced to gulp the food Hurrying which is not comfortable"
Pros: "The staff assistance Kosher food was great"
Cons: "Overhead baggage compartment was taken over by cups and stuff"
Pros: "The crew where very pleasant, The service on the plane was good you had a choice of what meal you would like to have you also had a choice of any movie or entertainment that you would like to see or play there was more leg space and much more comfortable seating"
Cons: "I can’t fault anything on this flight."
Pros: "Like the online check in and quick bag drop at the aiport"
Cons: "Food could have been much better with less processed foods"
Cons: "Old plane Left 1 hr late No entertainment Adis is an old filthy airport"
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: "Extra comfort and quiet in business class worth cost"
Pros: "nice movie but that's all"
Cons: "chair and light broken. tasteless food. small screens"
Pros: "The food was terrible but it was somewhat editable. It could have just been because I was so hungry I could eat anything too."
Cons: "The staff was rude, the boarding was a mess, the cabin was at least a little cooler than previous flight but still very uncomfortable, the amount of announcements was absolutely absurd!!! It was almost an announcement every 15 minutes. And the plane played music (terrible music) for 45 min extremely loud after taking off AND and hour before landing. It was so awful and so loud you couldn't even hear your own entertainment playing from your own headsets. I understand music while boarding and de-planing but there is absolutely no reason to have that playing that long after take off and hat soon before landing."
Pros: "Everything was great. The seats were comfortable. The crew was awesome! They provided us singular care and 10 hours flights did not seem too long! Entertainment was outstanding."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and professional."
Cons: "They lost my bag, there was no announcement that the flight was boarding."
Cons: "We were delayed for 30 minutes, then for one hour, then they announced a delay for 3 hours. They changed the gate twice and the staff was not communicating what is happening and when we are supposed to board. Also, they did not add my miles for my connecting flight."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "Poor entertainment system"
Cons: "The food was horrible. My TV didn't work and although I asked for it to be reset several times, the crew kept forgetting. The flight was supposed to be 9 hours, but we left late and it was 11+ hours. I understand things happen, but the crew gave no explanation for the delay or elongated flight. Last, but not least, when we landed in Newark we waited 2 hours for our luggage to come out. We landed at 9:50pm and didn't receive our baggage until 11:50pm. My friend and I were not even the last to get our bags. Overall this was the worst flight experience I've ever had."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "After I bought the tickets then they cancelled three or of the fire legs and have me over night flights, who does that? There was no storm, no earthquake, why? I'll never Vik with them again. And, weeks later I'm still trying to get my money back, over a thousand dollars lost to an unprofessional airline."
Cons: "What did I like? Nothin!!!."
Pros: "Plane from AA to tA seats very cramped and seats do not recline."
Cons: "Ethiopian Airlines was very difficult trying to contact and reschedule our flight. Will never book with them again."
Cons: "Addis airport is a disaster, Really long queues and badly organised, Our flight left 20 minutes late and in turn made our landing 1 hour later. The flight attendants on Ethiopian air are very lazy, they dont respond to the service button been pushed, and their English is not that good,"
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: "That they told me my bag would transfer and then it didn't...I loved that."
Cons: "After asking multiple times, I was reassured that my checked bag would go to my final destination. Yet my bag has still not been found."
Pros: "I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. It was clean and the staff made sure to make every attempt to clean the room. They gave 2 bottles of water each day. The flight on Ethiopian Airlines was smooth, kind crew and clean airplane. Airport was well lighted and had big sighs."
Cons: "This is what I didn't like, there guys there driving white cars or trucks that pretends to be taxi drivers. Don't use them. They are thieves and fake as hell. His name is Nasah, a guy from India, drives a white land cruiser. Please avoid them. Use the regular toyota cars that hat TAXI written on it."
Cons: "They had me sitting next to unaccompanied minor. They did not check on him at all. I had to go and ask them, because the child was hungry. We Could not sleep the whole flight. The wouldn't ask the parents to watch their kids."
Pros: "The plane is spacious. It gives leg comfort"
Pros: "The crew tries very hard to please"
Cons: "Toilets were not cleaned during the flight. Seats uncomfortable and much too crowded. Plane is inconvenient for night travel. No personal television."
Pros: "I really liked everything"
Cons: "It was one of good flight myself :)"
Pros: "Brand new plane was very nice"
Cons: "Addis Ababa airport"
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: "Not bad"
