Detour Via Nairobi

Review of Ls31 about the flight Ethiopian Airlines between Bujumbura and Nairobi on 13/04/2015 in Economy
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

On this flight, we were supposed to follow a direct route to Addis Ababa. To our great surprise we hade to go through Nairobi. Surprisingly, the airplane came from Nairobi, don't ask me why.
At 3:45 pm we boarded a 737-800 NG registered with ET-ASJ.
I was very surprised by the cleanliness of the airplane and its interior design (even if it is standard on this type of aircraft). The interior lighting system is similar to the one on the Dreamliner and finally I have to say that the Air Show system on this plane that I have to say really impressed me. It was really better than the on the 787 since it gave more information with more details. The flight crew was standard and very friendly on this one-hour flight. There was no onboard service, but everything went well and the flight was rather pleasant. 1h20min later (traffic delay) we touched down in Nairobi.
