It is nice to see a lot of smiling Eritrean faces on the Net these days, thanks to the maiden flight of the Queen Bee J. If the radiance of a smile were to be measured by some grin-o-meter, the Eritrean Airlines crew beaming faces could outshine that of any other.
I know we can't have a really heart-felt, roaring laughter as far as there is famine looming over our nation. But, as a mason pauses every so often to admire his work in progress, Eritreans have also every right to pause and appreciate the fruit of their labour. Especially those people who were closely involved with this project should be congratulated. I hope and pray that the services rendered by our airline will also be of top-notch.
Now that we have our own airlines it will not be insane to daydream about appearances. What am I going to wear on my maiden journey with the QB? Of course first thing first, I have to get a parking place for my rear on the Queen Bee en route to my hometown Asmara. Some tough decisions to be made here!J Whatever I wear I should pin a brooch in the form of a bee decked in primary colours of blue/green/red on my lapel. Well, flying on an Eritrean Airlines could have been a dream few weeks ago, now that it is a reality making some minor sartorial considerations should not be frowned at. Forget the bum and its wrapping, my ears are already itching to hear an Eritrean voice on the PA. In fact, all the senses will be under an all out Eritrean assault … glittering Eritrean smiles will dazzle my eyes, my ears will be pricked to hear Eritrean voices, hope there is ZIGHNI on the menu to cater for my taste buds and olfactory needs, and to complete it all a handshake on egress.
Congratulations to all those who made this a possibility, and I wish The Eritrean Airlines success.
Ours is no drone, swirling alone
Not a diddle-daddle but a QBee
Flying like a butterfly and stinging like a bee.
