“Super trip from JNB to ADD”
Review of Ethiopian Airlines


Reviewed 4 weeks ago

What a fantastic flight. Super efficient staff on board. Flight was not too full so there was room to spread out. Watched 2 movies and then we were ready to land. Very efficient emigration process and luggage was already on the carousel when I was cleared. Great stuff!!

The flight was totally full and the air hostesses could not cope on the 3.5 hour flight to Addis Ababa. When we arrived at Addis it seems the flight was carrying traders that had procured goods in Dubail and were transporting the goods as checked luggage...this resulted in a total disaster when collecting our luggage. It took 1.5 hours (half the duration of the flight) to recive our bags.......!

Was late from connecting flight (through no fault of my own) and they went the extra mile to accommodate me so that I wouldn't miss my overseas flight.

We went on this flight through Addis because of the good price. The airline was as good as can be expected. A big plus was the legroom. So important on a long journey. Check in was helpful both there and return and as I have a stiff leg I was given an isle seat. Unfortunately being right at the back I was constantly woken by either people using the toilet or staff cleaning it.The flights themselves were smooth and uneventful
On the downside the food was at best boring and the drinks options were poor. No spirits and awful beer. I have yet to try a wine on a plane that was drinkable. This was no exception. The headphones provided were poor and the fittings did not allow personal headphones to be used
