This morning I had the privilege of being on the Uganda Airlines maiden flight to Dar es Salaam. I couldn’t help but say a silent prayer of thanks to GOD for giving us a good aircraft for our regional travels (Hallelujah). I said goodbye to those old planes by the other airlines😉 that don’t flatter our airport hangar. 🙈
What a joy to sit in a new, roomy and crisp craft! To enjoy home grown food, Ugandan products – sugar, yoghurt, bread – waiting for the creamers (any Ugandan businessman out there thinking smart about this opportunity?).😅😅 Anyway, summary here:
1. Lovely cabin crew – the smiles, Rona Kusemererwa was amazing☑️
2. New craft (happy dance), flight was smooooooottthhhhhh…. Take off, landing despite the turbulence as we descended into Dar Es Salaam✔️
3. Plenty of leg room even in economy (wink, wink)✔️
4. Great food and the business class menu with Ugandan dishes is to die for…….you know we are the regional bread basket, no?😋🥖✔️
5. Direct flight!! Who is not fatigued by lengthy layovers in crummy airports? This is our redemption💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾
6. Imagine you go shopping tickets. Someone tells you to pay US$500 and your home man Uganda Airlines is saying, “please come for US$280”….my brother, my sister where would you go? That’s right, we all went running to Uganda Airlines🏃🏾♀️🏃🏾♀️🏃🏾♀️🏃🏾♀️
Areas for improvement:
1. Yet to be delivered inflight magazine and duty-free shop – looking forward to the great Ugandan experiences that will be showcased therein👌🏾👌🏾
2. System updates…… these I am told will be sorted sooner than later.
3. Cabin Crew Uniform could have a tinge of Ugandan/African wear like the hijab like cap for the Emirates Air female cabin crew💖💖💖💖
The potential for Uganda Airlines is limitless!! Let us join hands and support our national carrier not just out of patriotism but because for these regional routes it is indeed the tops!
