It was my first time to use this airline. Traveling in economy class, the staff were friendly, the food was superb, and overall the atmosphere was brilliant.
I enjoyed the Ethiopian national dish "Injerabǝwot.” There was no delay in departure at all; in fact, the first flight arrived 1 hour early because the weather was good. I recommend Ethiopian airlines!
