Fly Ethiopian Airlines!!

After spending one month in Uganda I took a short trip to Addis Ababa since I was in the region. I have a friend from grad school that works there and I have heard great things so I figured it was a great opportunity to see the city.

After playing with different dates and times and trying to stick to my usual Sky Team, represented in this region by Kenya Airways, I finally gave up on an addition in my quest for gold medallion status and booked a flight on Ethiopian Airlines, which offered a few non-stop flights between Entebbe and Addis Ababa everyday. I did add my US Airways mileage program number in order to ensure no miles go unaccounted for!

Having never flown Ethiopian Airlines, the self-proclaimed “New Spirit of Africa”, I did not know what to expect. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the modernity and cleanliness of the plane. The flight crew was very nice and on my short one hour and forty minute flight, I received not only a FULL meal each way, but I also could choose wine or beer to accompany my meal. While this flight is technically international, I know a few US airlines (ALL) that could learn from the customer service of Ethiopian airlines.

So if you are ever in the region and are looking for an airline that can offer great service and amenities, be sure to give Ethiopian Airlines a try.
