RwandaAir offers a remarkable flight experience. It was my first time flying with this airline, and I was extremely thrilled. My flight was from Entebbe – Dar es salaam via Kigali. For me Rwanda air Economy class proofed to be the best choice in terms of convenience, costs (fare) and customer services. I got a paper air ticket from a traveling company in Kampala and therefore couldn’t check-in online, but nevertheless the check-in from Entebbe International Airport was so quick.
I left the departure gate on time at Entebbe International airport and departed 45minutes later, but reasons for delay was clearly communicated by the flight deck and apologies were made. I had enough time to grab a cup of cappuccinoand black coffee at Entebbe International airport lounge as I waited for my flight. However,my return flights were on time and worth mentioning.

Food and Beverages
In-flight catering services begins promptly with a pre-meal drink of soft drinks, juices and sparkling water. A flight attendant graced with a gorgeous smile came down the aisle with a tray containing Passion fruit juice, apple juice and water. My choice was apple juice, favorite of all times- poured into the spotlessly clean glass.
The main breakfast meal came shortly after and I was quite pleased with the food quality across the meal tray. The food tastes fresh and the cutlery pack has sachet of coffee and sugar for convenient use. The meal is well presented on a table mat crafted with the Rwandan rich culture and which was satisfactory.
