Hello and welcome to a new Flight Report, the third of the series. Here is the routing :


Routing


Our layover was short and we didn't have time to head to the lounge. But on our way to the gate, I spotted a Kenya Airways 787.
I actually really like the livery. I hope to be lucky enough to fly Kenya Airways someday !

We had bus boarding, which is a shame in such a modern airport. At least there was a dedicated business class bus, which even had more 'luxurious' seats…

The good thing about bus boarding is the nice views of the plane you get. 



Sadly, I am sitting in the aisle today.  We got the old cabin, but with the new IFE system, unlike on our last flight, which was on an outdated cabin. This cabin

There were headphones, a blanket and a pillow on our seats.

The headrest. I think it was adjustable, but I'm not sure.

And (finally), all the IFE accessories : the tablet, remote, headphones and the IFE system itself.



The in-flight litterature :



We received a bottle of water upon boarding…

The geovision is pretty good on the new system. BTW, ICE is probably the best entertainment system in the world.

Ah, onboard cameras. Good.

After takeoff, we were served breakfast (I got light).

And I decided to watch some movies. Soon before starting our descent, we were served some lunch. It was pretty good. I got the  smoked salmon :

And the beef tenderloin.

And for dessert, I got a dark chocolate and coffee mousse. It was really good.

And then we got some nice chocolates.
