Hi There Ethiopian Airlines was a good experience, Flights were on time, stewardess were friendly and helpful and plane was very comfortable. I was unhappy to discover that when I had to book my lugage in from Jhb to Dbn I had to pay for an additional bag. I booked one ticket - paid one amount, Ethiopian Airlines allowed me two bags - surely this should mean my luggage would arrive in Durban without having to pay extra. What if one does not have the money to pay for luggage enroute. Please reply. Thank you

Looks like more security attention is meant for people who are not of white skin especially in European airports.
