I know this is an old thread but posting here in case it is of use to future travelers.

Yes, buying domestic tickets in Ethiopia is a lot cheaper - I found the prices to be about 40% of what is shown on the website. I was in Ethiopia in early June and waited till I landed in ADD - then went to a city ticket office and bought ADD-LLI, LLI-GDQ, BJR-ADD and paid about $158 for all 3 legs. The first flight was for the following day and there was plenty of availability. However, this was more off-season, since there were very few tourists around.

All 3 flights were on Bombardier Q400 aircraft (if my memory is correct).

The lady in the booking office told me that ET does not give freq flyer credit for the internal flights. But this does not seem to be true. Miles were credited to my UA account automatically.
