"seat was nice and wide"

(Egypt)

One of the best airplanes I've ever been on, my seat was nice and wide. Thankfully I was travelling with my friends which gave me more comfort. IFE's showing the safety video and we took off. Soon after we were served dinner (It was tasty).

"disappointed with the seats"

(Malawi)

Was excited about flying on the new Boeing 787 from PEK to ADD but was utterly disappointed with the seats. They were so narrow that you could hardly move around (I'm not the largest person by any stretch of the imagination). In comparison to the B777 Economy Class seats these are by far the worse. Awful legroom and recline.

"recommend for seat comfort"

(United Kingdom)

I found the seats on the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 777 300 superior to many European and Gulf airlines I have flown. Not having 4 seats in the centre means that the seats are wider and much more comfortable. The 32 inch pitch is more than adequate and I am 6 feet tall. The IFE screens are on par with most airlines and I never had a problem with them at all on either the JNB-ADD leg or ADD-LHR. I would recommend this airline for seat comfort.

"very uncomfortable"

(Philippines)

The Boeing 767-300ER economy cabin seats look and feel like they are from the 80's and are very uncomfortable. There is very little leg room, the head rest only goes up about half an inch, the arm rests lift up but not far enough to clear the seat when half reclined. They need to invest a little money and update some of the older planes

"seats are a touch hard"

(Israel)

I suppose it comes down to the route you are flying. But to my knowledge many aircraft are very old and not comfortable. When you fly the new Boeing 787 in economy, seats are a touch hard but still comfortable. Recline is fine and leg space is larger then many other airlines I have traveled with. Personal tv in the seat infront of you is an extra on these new airplanes. All my coments on the B787 are valid for their Boeing 777-200, same comfort.

"legroom was nearly not available"

(Germany)

Seat was comfortable but the legroom was nearly not available. The space between the seats for the legs was so short that it was nearly impossible to access the seat. Even if I am not a really big person I had to put my legs on both sides of the seat in front of me. Legroom on Ryanair is better then Ethiopian Airlines long haul.

"seats were too small"

(Malawi)

Decently quiet aircraft but seats were too small especially considering the length of the journey (PEK- ADD 8hrs). Ethiopian should consider reducing the number of seats in the middle aisle to 3.
