  1. We reserved several days in advance, but Ethiopian cancelled that flight within the last-minute and charged an exorbitant last-minute fare to change to a different scheduled flight. They shown no fascination with finding the luggage that they’d jettisoned nor in delivering it towards the hotel once they did arrive. Desk staff were reluctant to chair us together, selecting us to each sit between others. Bought vegetarian meals were not provided. Avoid this outfit if whatsoever possible.
