It is the time for travelling, very nice that I can go to Bangkok with mum after seven years. Due to the labour holiday, I choose Kenya Airways to Bangkok. It seems a nice airlines after I read the flight report from this platform.

I can do the online check-in at home instead for queuing here.

This may be the crew rest area.
The rear galley.
Ready for the meal service.
The creamy fish with potato, taste look just fine. The salad is nice.
Really like this curry chicken rice, is better than previous one. The sauce is like Thai style.
The red wine and white wine provide for Economy Class passengers.
Apple crumble, really special dessert which can enjoy at Economy Class,
Enjoy the moment of flying with my mum.
Finish the meal, it feel very full.
The Chinese man walk around after the meal.
It looks so ugly for the IFE remote.
The washroom, is similar with other Boeing 787 aircraft
The cabin light has dimmed.
I enjoyed a glass of orange juice which come from friendly crew.
The bar for the long haul Business Class passengers.
After the request of visit the cockpit, the crew accept that and I can visit after landing. Also, they accepted my request to change the seat to 11C. It is the first row of Economy Class, it feel quiet than 33A. The nice legroom for me.
The generous legroom of 11C
The nice lighting show
Another view of Business Class.
The nice cockpit visit with my mum, really thanks to the crew of this flight.
Get back my luggage to airport.
The nice gift from the friendly crew, Business Class over night kit.
Lots of mixed nuts.
Hong Kong - HKG
Bangkok - BKK
Really nice jounery with Kenya Airways. The friendly crew and the modern plane Dreamliner 787, the plane is look new and the seat is very comfy. My seat 33A is a nice seat for view the wings.
The meal is nice, but I like chicken rather than the fish. The food is from Bangkok Airways Catering, the nice food which is nice for a dinner of 2 hr 10 mins flight. Really nice to enjoy a bottle wine in this short flight.
The crew is have passion of flight, I was chatted with them about their crew life and their duty pattern. Also, they provide lots of souvenirs from the crew. As you know, the transit time in BKK is quite short. However, they let me and mum visited the cockpit, really thanks to all the crew in KQ861.

Thanks for sharing!
The gifts is amazing and I can use it for the Europe trip, because LH do not provide any
overnight kit in the Y class.
The crew is kind and helpful, they are very professional. I hope I can travel on KQ again.
Very soon I'm going to board this flight (all the way up to NBO) so thanks for the preview on what should be expected!
Judging from your pictures it seems a rather high load, do you remember if many travellers, like you, got off at BKK?
"Also, they accepted my request to change the seat to 11C" not surprised the 2or 3 first rows seats remained vacant as no one can select them online prior the flight or during the online check-in, even with a small extra fee!
So after experiencing both East Africa's largest carriers (though not on the same routes), which one do you prefer Ethiopian or Kenya Airways?
Looking forward to the return trip
KQ is quite positive image for me after this flight. The plane is new and all the things
let me feel at home.
There are lots of passengers will get off to Bangkok such as lots of Chinese tour. After that, another African will onboard the flight to NBO.
For the extra legroom seat, I would suggest you ask for the staff when you check-in. If there are seat available, I think they will help you to change to those seat. However, I don't know if there any extra fee will need to pay.
The last question is let me struggle for half day.
ET let me feel impress are the Business Class meal (Please read my ET672 FR) and the quiet cabin due to few of the passengers.
KQ let me feel impress are the souvenir from the crew and the cockpit visit with my mum.
To sum up, both carriers are do the good job in the flight. KQ would be little bit better because the crew can provide professional service such as they speak Mandarin when the meal service start.
Hope you will like the return trip, because the flight let me feel KQ is the pride of Africa.
"The last question is let me struggle for half day. "=> my bad i did not aim at this
"KQ would be little bit better because the crew can provide professional service such as they speak Mandarin when the meal service start." => Glad to know, i've read that now ET employs Chinese cabin crew
time to read the return leg
My bad i did not aim at this => Not really, because both airlines can give me feel good in the flight. That's why I can't determine which is better.
Glad to know, i've read that now ET employs Chinese cabin crew => ET have Chinese crew, they will serve the route from ADD to CAN, PVG, HKG and PEK.
