    The worst airlines I ever traveled on and I traveled with more than 25+ airlines. It is mismanaged, they charge you for your extra bag twice. The bags are always delayed or lost. I don’t you recommend this airline for anyone. It definitely will make your life/travels difficult.

    DISASTER! HANDS OFF! WORST EXPERIENCE EVE!

    Flight canceled without informing me. We I call them because I wasn’t able to make the check-in online the day before the flight, they told me that it was canceled. INACCEPTABLE!
    After 8 calls every 2hours (each call took lasts at least 45mins) trying to get another solution, I got the confirmation that they put me on another flight that will leave in less than 2hours. I took the taxi to the airport right away but Of course it was too late so I missed that flight.
    Today, we are one day after the initial flight and I still don’t have a solution from Ethiopia Airlines. I do not know if I will travel to spend holiday with my family or not.

    I called a million of times. Sometimes the just cut off or hang up during a call. They never call back the customer for helping finding a solution, no emails. The lied to me many times saying they will call me or will send e-mail but never do that.

    I am abandoned to myself and will take a lawyer again Ethiopia Airlines!

    We had booked to fly in 2020 but had to cancel because of covid. We were given credits for 2 different flights. When I tried using these credits the problems started. Dealing with Ethiopian Reservations is a streesful exercise. Ringing is totally stressful. An agent answers and then I would start my explanation and they would cut me off. Emailing is slightly better but I would have to send the same information several times before I got anyone to do anything. Finally I booked our flights. Two weeks before we were due to fly they canceled one of the bookings and said we would have to change the dates. After much stress with emails and calls I finally sorted it out . We were told we could use our excess credit for an upgrade. But, when we tried to do this they refused. So in effect they stole 224 pounds from us.
    The flights were OK. Staff not so helpful or friendly. The food was disgusting and the mains were inedible.
    AVOID Ethiopian if you can.

    I was denied boarding by an incompetent and illiterate gate agent in Cotonou. The agent could not read English and claimed my visa was not valid. Upon further review of my visa documents check-in staff at Cotonou airport admitted that my visa was valid after I had been denied boarding and had missed my flight. Ground staff at Cotonou airport was unwilling to help and issue a new ticket.

    The call center of Ethiopian Airlines was thoroughly unhelpful as well. They keep you waiting for hours and claim that matters have to be resolved at the local airport and that there is nothing they can do.
