Opinions on airlines BOS to NBO

Jump to last reply

I'm looking at airfare now to Kenya for February . Price being the same or +/- $30, these are my choices:

British Airways BOS-LHR-NBO-LHR-BOS
KLM BOS-AMS-NBO-AMS-BOS (Delta on the BOS-AMS rt)
Air France BOS-CDG-NBO-CDG-BOS (Kenya Air on the CDG-NBO rt)

My concerns are: flying out in February, which is always risky in Boston due to snow and last year London had its share of snow delays as well. But of the three, London has the most option with Boston in the event I'd need to rebook due to snow. I had a not so great experience with KLM coming home from Tanzania this year, would rather not subject myself to it again OR give them more of my money, but I love connecting in Schiphol and otherwise I was fine with the Delta/KLM experience. I personally don't mind Air France, have flown them before but I read not great things about Kenya Air's planes and service.

Any thoughts or experience on the above?

So, the lesser of which evil...
