Zanzibar Dhow Lounge
Around 2:55pm, we left the lounge and went to the gate downstairs. About 10 minutes later, boarding started and since we were flying in business class, we had priority boarding as well as a separate bus to the aircraft 👍
Aircraft, Boeing 787
One interesting thing about this Dreamliner is that there is an ottoman and the seats are almost fully flat unlike the one we flew with from Stockholm to Addis Ababa a week before.
Landing at Kilimanjaro Airport
A few minutes after take off (around 5:40pm), the captain came on the PA to announce (among other things) that we were passing Mount Kilimanjaro and that we could see it to our right side 😍😍
Minutes later, the light snack service started, with Belem, one of the flight attendants working in the business class cabin offering the menu card. She also addressed me by my name which was impressive and something I did not experience on my previous flights.
Around 7:19pm, we were ready for landing and six minutes later, we landed at Addis Ababa Airport although it was not a smooth landing, pretty much like how we landed in Kilimanjaro Airport. By 7:33pm, we reached the gate and immediately headed to the Ethiopian Cloud Nine Lounge 2.
Overall, it was a nice flight as the seats were comfortable and the food was very good especially the lamb. Unfortunately, the meal service from Kilimanjaro to Addis Ababa was sort of stressful as it took time to serve all 24 passengers and there were only two flight attendants plus one in the galley taking care of it. The bread served was also very hard, I wonder it would have been best to not offer them at all 😉 On the plus side, Belem was such a nice flight attendant always addressing me by my name and always with a smiling face. It was a nice flight overall, although there are still some things to be improved.
