Regarding my international flight , I have the option of arriving in Nairobi at either 6:30 am (which includes a nine hour layover in Amsterdam) or 8:00pm (with a 2 hr layover in Amsterdam) .... each segment of the flight is 7 hours. Question is, arriving at 630am, would I be able to check in? If that were the case, I could book a day room in Amsterdam for the layover and rest up between segments.. If I arrive at 8pm, that leaves little time to rest, and I would be off the following morning for Tsavo East, unless i book an extra day at the fairview. I really don't care about seeing Nairobi... But I'm just wondering what might be the best way to do this. What would you do?
