Rwandair has been nominated for the 'Most Promising Airline' at the Arabian Travel Awards 2019!

Not really.
It's the cabin that gets denser,

As a colleague years ago in South Africa was used to say, being a contractor in TDY for 2 full years :
"I'am happily married. My wife feels married, and I feel happy". No contradiction ;)
