The selection of movies has not changed in a very long time. Other than that... All was excellent
Good and efficient service. Food was quite poor though. And my seat hadn't been cleaned from previous flight (pockets still full of gargbage). Flight entertainment had a good screen, but audio with earplugs was terrible.
The flight was comfortable and service was great. The wait on the Lome layover was longer than the airline promised but the crew landed us at Newark on schedule.
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Serve Warm food"
Cons: "Better veg food, Ask and provide water to drink when flight is 10 hrs long. Not just provide lunch and dinner."
Cons: "Punctuality. Time is off the essence."
Pros: "New airplane was comfortable and clean. Food was just okay."
Cons: "We had to transit in Addis (connecting from Dakar) and the whole experience of going through the Addis airport, getting the voucher for the hotel, and going to the hotel was horrible: it took forever going through immigration and getting a simple stamp on the voucher (the latter an unsafe experience and time consuming, with hundreds of people piled up to get those stamps from just two people, crashing again each other, with no order, no lines). Somewhat there has to be a better way to manage this and make the experience safer and more comfortable to everybody. For instance, just enforcing to stay in line and organizing the lines would have saved everybody a lot of time and effort."
Cons: "Chicken was undercooked. No power outlets."
Cons: "Flight delays with no info from staff. Food poorly prepared. No orderly queues - there is aggression with no intervention from staff. There is no need for two security checks when making connections in Addis. Plane loos were all very stinky and dirty. I now remember why I had stopped using ET!"
Pros: "The landing was smooth and so was the whole flight! Loved it"
Cons: "Food. I ended up throwing up shortly after eating"
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "entertainment system only played audio out of one ear, small selection of movies, flight departed late and gate changed"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "They need to improve on thier inflight menu and the check-in and boarding experience"
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: "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 was great. Extremely accommodating for families."
Cons: "The delay was too much"
Cons: "Airport facilities at Adis Ababa"
Pros: "Amazingly smooth flight and landing."
Pros: "Seats are delapidated and food is ok!"
Cons: "Crew were very good"
Pros: "The food was delicious"
Cons: "Checking in was poor. The booking didn't reflect in jhb or in two Aviv. Special meal was requested and not provided."
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: "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: "food and beer were fine"
Cons: "4 flights ,4 delays. poor customer service . every thing is very slow ."
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: "Excellent pre-boarding service to get aisle seats. Comfortable on time flights. Pleasant service."
Cons: "Bad service and follow through when luggage lost. Promised it would arrive that afternoon and given a tel number to call. Advised that I could not claim expenses for toiletries, basic necesssities. 1. Luggage did NOT arrive that afternoon 2. No reply to tel calls or got an automatic answering service. 3. No follow through to emails 4. Persistent phone calls at last elicited a response that luggage would arrive next morning - but unable to give a time 5. Luggage arrived late afternoon i.e. 2 full days later 6. I will put in a claim for toiletries, underwear, socks + taxi to get to shops"
Pros: "Like a third world flight, I could not purchase a wifi. Service is excellent."
Pros: "hospitality food beverages"
Cons: "duty free sales were very limited"
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "Poor entertainment system"
Cons: "The flight schedule was changed and despite contacting Ethiopian multiple times, they did not comprehend the problem. I was scheduled from Dar to Blantyre to Lilongwe then to Blantyre AGAIN, my obvious final destination. Luckily the crew at Malawian Airlines allowed me off the plane early and edited my booking for the return journey efficiently and easily."
Pros: "New aircraft 777 from Boeing"
Cons: "Food was so poor. Only option was chiken"
Pros: "Was lucky to be able to get 3 seats in a row, so could sleep.. They were able to put me in 3 seats again on return, so all good for me... Crew nice, leg room decent, entertainment was fine... Movie choices were not best I've seen, but first world problem... Overall I would recommend.."
Cons: "The return journey time from Dublin sucks... 6am flight, so u have to stay up all night pretty much... If they could change that, it would be amazing... Food not great, so you would be better off bringing your own stuff..."
Pros: "Service & Staff"
Cons: "They don't need to translate everything into Ethiopian language. There isn't a single person flying from Addis to Malawi (or Malawi to Addis) who speaks Ethiopian, so it's a waste of everyone's time and interrupts the movie, sleep, and meal."
Pros: "Entertainment, comfort in flight"
Cons: "The crew was not too caring, and the food was really below average - same dish for lunch and dinner."
Pros: "Smooth Flight."
Cons: "Too crowded."
Cons: "Ethiopia Airport is ruff. Needs bathrooms renovated and more places for waiting for flights the smoking lounge can be smelled through the hole airport"
Pros: "Again, excellent service. Funny stop on way to runway where we seemed to take on more fuel was a little concerning."
Cons: "Funny stop on way to runway where we seemed to take on more fuel was a little concerning."
Pros: "The plane on this part was not too bad."

Pros: "The movie and music collection was good."

Pros: "The remembered to pick up our kosher meals this time. The crew is very kind."
Cons: "Even though the plane is quite new, the seats are beginning to look dirty."
Pros: "The crew is very kind."
Cons: "I was the second person in the toilet. It was already dirty (is there a better flushing system available?) and the liquid soap didn't work. Also the seats are very uncomfortable for a night flight: hard and crowded. No personal tv sets. Only overhead, and from where I was sitting I had either to look back uncomfortably, or look at a small screen quite away up/"
