Air Tanzania Economy Class Review Lusaka to Dar Es Salaam Airport
I’m so excited about the new flights to Mumbai, China and Thailand, by the end of the year. So, Im gonna do a Air Tanzania Economy Class from to Lusaka, Zambia to Dar Es Salaam.
So Air Tanzania has 3 types of Planes .
1. Bombardier dash 8-Q400
This is that small funky plane with the propellers
Which has 6 business class and 70 economy .
Theres 3 of these planes.
2. Airbus 220-300
This plane has 12 business class and 120 economy
I think theres 1 or 2 of these.
3. Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner
And then there’s the new one, which has 22 business class and 240 economy
I think they only have 1 of these
Air Tanzania Economy Class from Lusaka Zambia to Dar Es Salaam Tanzania. The review is judged on 6 categories:
4.Food & drink,
5.Cleanliness and service
So check-in: it was very good actually
When I got to the counter it was only about 2.5 mins to check my bag in and everything
The guy was very softly spoken. I could only just understand what he was saying
But overall this is the quickest Ive ever check in at an airport so overall. I’m giving this a 5 out of 5
So my flight was scheduled to leave at 2:25 and arrive at Dar Es Salaam at 5:45
Its a 2hr 20min flight with a 1 hr time difference
So its 2:34. Flight is supposed leave at 2:25. We are not even on the plane yet.
I dont know why but in Lusaka they give you a boarding pass when you check in
Then you hand that in and they give you this other card here.
So, its now 2:42 and just getting on the plane now
I’m flying on Airbus 220 which is the 2nd largest aircraft out of the 3.
So, usually when I fly, I fly business class,
But today I fly economy especially for you.
Flight was only 50 minutes late.
I was actually grateful it was 50 min late because I was having the time of my life so
On arrival and departure the Jurassic Park theme playing which was a nice touch.
Seat numbers weren’t allocated, you just choose what seat you want which was good.
No seats for everyone, you just pick yourself.
Its only a 2 hour flight so no TV or entertainment system
Which is good because I dont have to see bright screens and TVs everywhere.
Leg room was good. Ive seen a lot worse than this in economy.
Plenty or room to fit all my heavy gear in.
Really l looking forward to my food.
Tanzania has the best food in the world.
Meal was samosa, meatball and fishfinger.
Which was very very nice.
3. Food & drink,
They had a lot of meat and fish inside them I did enjoy.
What was strange was that when we landed they announced an apology for the cold food
because the oven was broken.
I didn’t even notice.
Local Tanzanian wine.
I was speechless
The wine was delicious – the best wine I’ve had in my life
And the beers were all African which suited me just fine
4. Cleanliness and service
As you can see here the seats are very clean
In the toilet, you sink
Somewhere to clean your hands
What else can you ask for?
The cleanest plane I’ve ever seen.
5. Cleanliness and service
Service was excellent. I had no trouble communicated with staff
They all spoke very good English and were very accommodating.
I’m simply gonna give that a 5 out of 5 for that
So, in conclusion I would give this For Air Tanzania. 50/50
