Flying Kenya Airlines? Better beware

Jump to last reply

We flew into Kenya via Bangkok with Kenya Airlines. We checked in to our flights in Sydney, checking our bags through to Kiliminjaro, and were told to pick up our boarding passes in Bangkok. We arrived around +/-11:00PM, and when we got to the transfer desk, Kenya Airlines told us the flight was full and we'd have to wait 24 hours until the next one.

This was terribly upsetting to us, but we held our groud, standing at the desk and insisting that they'd have to get us on that flight one way or the other as we had to connect with another flight and were booked to begin our safari.

They said they still had people from the night before (!!!) who had to get on the flight.

Anyway, all's well that end's well, and at 11:20 we got on the flight.

But...if you are flying into Bangkok connecting to Kenya Airlines, make sure your TA contacts them the day of, and maybe also the day before you fly, to ensure that they hold your seats.

Otherwise, everything went like clockwork. However, I'd think twice before flying this airline again.

And so begins our African safari!
