Here’s an update on my Ethiopian “discount” business class ticket.
If you recall, I took advantage of a great $776 r/t fare in business class on Ethiopian Airlines from Bangkok to Toronto. I have a trip to Bangkok coming soon so this was a perfect return not just in price, but to get back to North America and try out a business class product I have not yet flown.
Many passengers who took advantage of this deal received the following email–
Thank you for choosing Ethiopian!
Kindly note that your round trip ticket from Bangkok to Toronto in business class is quoted in wrong amount that is uploaded online mistakenly. Note that the ticket can only be refunded or re priced again and you will pay the price difference. Acknowledge us back with your preference.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
I never received that email. But I noticed today that my booking has been cancelled.
When attempting to pull up the reservation on Ethiopian’s website, I encounter the following message–
If I attempt to pull up the e-ticket, I also encounter an error message.
But no refund. No phone call. No contact.
Way to go Ethiopian…
I still may show up at the counter in Bangkok and see what happens. But it appears less likely by the day that I will be able to take advantage of this great ticket.
