I do think Ethiopian are a very solid airline and do deserve more recognition. They have a really modern fleet and some beautiful destinations, along with a sleek livery. They really are on the same level as Etihad, Turkish and Lufthansa for me.


For sure! I think a modern fleet and a great service is what makes them a great success.

I hope they continue to grow! Ethiopian is one of my favorite international Airlines.
