My flight KQ263 to Nairobi was cancelled and missed the connecting flight to London. No information was given as to why the flight was cancelled nor could I contact anyone at the airport. Luckily I was on a group flight with Exodus and they arranged alternative flights which meant arriving home a day late. When we arrived at the airport...

I really was impressed with the overall passenger service provided by Kenya Airways. From the cabin crew to the pilot/s, to the ground staff, I found them efficient, friendly & helpful. The cabin attendants' uniforms were impeccable & the female cabin crew had every hair in place & make up perfect. The business class seats in the 737-800 were recliners...

Second time flying between Dubai and Nairobi and I will certainly choose another airline next time. The seats have to be the most uncomfortable seats I’ve experienced. If you are close to or over 6 feet tall, you will not fit in the seats. No individual inflight entertainment, seats did not recline and completely crammed in on a packed flight....

The Dreamliner flight from Nairobi to Amsterdam was chocful and boarded on time. The boarding went quite chaotic with priority and normal streams of passengers not well separated. Once on board the departure happened with an hour delay without any explanation except from a promise by the captain we would arrive on time (which we did). Only airborne we heard...

They should really need to upgrade their service to ensure traveler comfort while one traveling for long distance. Traveling long distance without flight entertainment is seems like a painful travel

Really enjoyed my flight home with kenyan airways! What a treat it was. The food is of good standard and the service is always prompt. No problems with lost luggage or delayed flights. Smooth flight throughout. Will be flying often with them in the future.
