Has anyone flown with Ethopian Airlines from the UK to Cape Town? What is the Business Class like?
Am assured by my travel consultant Business Class is really good. She travelled on it last year. We're booked for Oct flying from Dublin to Johannesburg and returning 4 weeks later Capetown to Dublin... very excited - first trip to SA!
Thank you that puts my mind at rest. Always ready to give different airlines a go!
Hope you enjoy your trip. It sounds amazing.
I flew business class Cape Town to Dubai about 18 months ago, and never again! It was a journey of two halves. From Cape Town to Addis Ababa the plane was old, no lie flat seats, no individual TV screens, awful food. Chaotic transfer at Addis Ababa. Emirates economy is far better.
From Addis Ababa to Dubai it was a Dreamliner and excellent in all ways. So, if it was a Dreamliner on both legs and much cheaper than Emirates or Qatar, then I would consider it. Otherwise I would choose Emirates.
I do not know if Kenya Airways fly to UK or not, but it is just a little more expensive than Ethiopian Air, but provide flat bed and the food are more eatable.
Or if you could afford the gulf airline i.e. Etihad, Emirates or Qatar then these are much better off in literally everything.
