ADIS ababa airport was not a good experience and I am used to travelling well off the beaten track. Men were openly staring at my teenage daughter making her feel uncomfortable including airport staff. Vendors and airport staff were extremely rude. Smoke hurt my lungs and it was dirty. Also the infrastructure was not in place to effectively deal with volumes of people so long queues with little or no explanation of what was going on followed by more queues and seemingly unnecessary repeated security checks that failed to even pick up basic threats. Shall never be using again.
