Translation party!

I need help translating an email from German to English.

I'm flying to Ethiopia in the fall, going through Frankfurt. Which seems to have made Ethiopian Air think I speak German. It's clearly got something to do with my confirmation number and flight, but it'd be nice to get a full-ish translation.

Thanks!

The Google Translation gives a pretty good sense of what the email says:

Ladies and Gentlemen,

On your journey, there was a schedule change.

Their current stay in the details, you can view and print on the website and www.virtuallythere.com.

Please enter this in the appropriate fields, just your reservation code: a EASRCT and your last name, and in the second step, your e-mail address that you told us when placing the order.

We point out that the passenger is responsible for compliance with visa and entry regulations are responsible.

They're not really telling you anything about the schedule change, just that you have to go to the website to find out what it is.

As no one has asnwered I used Google translate which comes up with: "Ladies and Gentlemen,

On your journey, there was a schedule change.

Their current stay in the details, you can view and print on the website and www.virtuallythere.com.

Please enter this in the appropriate fields, just your reservation code: a EASRCT and your last name, and in the second step, your e-mail address that you told us when placing the order.
