卡塔爾航空經濟評論馬耳他(MLA)至亞的斯亞貝巴(ADD)A320和777ER

書面和出版 2019年11月17日 See this post in English

For this Qatar Economy flight from Malta to Addis Abeba, I had reviewed a few options. I wasn't sure what kind of aircraft Qatar Airways would use for the Doha to Addis Abeba leg (the equipment varies from an A320 to a 777W/L and B787). I also assumed the A320 from Doha would just come with a recliner seat Business Class which I reviewed a number of times (i.e. Qatar Business Class A320 to Entebbe and Qatar Business Class A320 from Dar es Salaam).

在馬耳他,是一個暴風雨的日子,島上到處都是烏云密布的雷雨雲。上午6.30,卡塔爾航空的登機手續很熱鬧,但動作很快,並且有很多樂於助人的員工。入住時帶著微笑和豐富的知識!

I made my way to the La Vallete Priority Pass lounge which has a beautiful view over the runway. There were some decent breakfast items as well - alas no drinkable coffee came out of the espresso makers.

Boarding was right on time and seemed extra orderly using the bus gate provided. To my surprise, Airbus A320 (A7-AHT) which was delivered in 2012 had been upgraded to 12 lie-flat seats in Business Class.

經濟大約充滿了70%,中間的空位使這更類似於歐洲的經濟艙商務艙。座椅有足夠的俯仰角(即使我的膝蓋也無法伸到我面前的座椅上)。

不幸的是,我旁邊的兩個小孩不太喜歡這次飛行,幾乎一半的時間都發了高音發脾氣。

儘管烏云密布,我們還是向西北起飛。湍流並沒有這些雷暴雲使我想的那麼糟,但是經過一陣劇烈的跌落,我們保持了起飛動力10分鐘,然後以最快的速度爬升。僅僅10分鐘後,所有的天空都晴朗了。

卡塔爾航空有7名(!)空姐在相當小的機艙內工作。大約90分鐘後,早餐服務開始了,麵條(委婉地稱為粉絲)可以食用。其他早餐項目都不是我的最愛。

除黎巴嫩和敘利亞境內的一些突然但重大的顛簸外,大多數飛行都是平穩進行的。

這是Wifi的價格(我沒有使用過)。

當我與即將來臨的學步兒童一起降落在卡塔爾上時,我的耳朵在嗡嗡作響。

多哈機場在中午幾乎是空的(大多數連接運行的夜晚,人群可能會帶來威脅)。優秀的Priority Pass休息室也空著。我喜歡在多哈機場各個候機廳裡品嚐的鷹嘴豆泥(似乎都是來自同一家餐飲公司)。我的心情好轉了,直到互聯網上充滿休息室的人慢慢死了。

我提早到達門口,只是看到一群喧囂的埃塞俄比亞人熱切地等待著登機。登機口人員對區域登機非常嚴格,這使推擠和推擠成為噩夢。

最終,每個人都坐上了公共汽車,我們經過了看似一百架飛機,並且驚喜/驚奇地停在了巨大的777-330 ER前面。這些飛機通常去休斯敦或洛杉磯!實際上,它配備了QSuites-但對我而言,這要感謝我的經濟艙機票。亞的斯亞貝巴通常與A320一起使用,但今天不提供。

雖然急躁的乘客登機了很多場面,但事實證明777的大型商務艙中沒有(!)乘客,經濟艙中的乘客僅佔50%。只有阿拉知道此路由為何被升級為777。

I moved the seats to get a poor man's' Business Class' and enjoyed myself quite a bit during this flight. It was eerily quiet the whole time - I could barely make out any engine noise, there was no turbulence and the food was pretty good too. I had my own little QSuite laying down on four seats in the middle. The only negative comment I can make is that the flight attendants seemed to disappear for the entire flight - I was trying to get a drink but failed before the fasten seat belt sign came back on for landing.

著陸非常快,狂風到了一個大風的夜晚(在7,500英尺處著陸速度更高)。

我們被送往老航站樓,那裡只有一名人員在抵達程序中處理所有簽證。當然,不接受任何信用卡,他必須在銀行消失幾分鐘才能得到美元找零。哦,埃​​塞俄比亞!

總共,這是一次非常體面的經濟艙航班。兩次飛行相互呼應,大聲疾呼,但歡樂而友好的空姐和第二次飛行似乎壓力很大,但最終卻非常放鬆。
