Ethiopian Airlines plans to expand to Chengdu, Jakarta, and resumption of Singapore services

Ethiopian agressively adds Asian Cities to it’s network lately (Excluding Ho Chi Minh which is also rumoured) , What do you think about Ethiopian’s plan?

  • = Previously, Ethiopian do operate ADD-BKK-SIN, But Ethiopian doesn’t have 5th Freedom Rights to pick passengers between KUL-SIN sector with Daily Service

Three places I’d like to visit. Maybe I’ll look into Ethiopian, has anyone flown with them before?

Need to go to Ho Chi Minh later next year , it is either on EK and keep my gold status or go Ethopian and use the tier miles to retain SAA Voyager gold. Looks like it going to be the EK way if ET doesn’t start operations.

It is a shame ADD is a total dump of a airport , would be great if the lounge was upgraded !


Indeed, I have see the lounge and it’s really bad! Hope they upgrade it soon :)

@Flightfan84 I never flown with them before, But maybe this FR can give you an image about the airline
