Beware of Google searches. The first 3 items are adware, suspicious in my view. I wouldn't use ethiopiannairlines.com, ethiopiansairliness.co.uk or ethiopianairline.uk/ethiopian/airlines just in case.
Roger,

You also need to beware of ET aircraft utilisation. I was supposed to be on a shiny new A350 last week ADD-FIH, but at the jetbridge I got my seat number crossed out and a new one written in, and we boarded onto one of their older 767s (and they have some real tatty ones!).

But I'm sure you'll be fine. Just don't go looking at any comments on the 'other African airlines' forum...
