Food very disappointing
As a professional flight attendant I know good service extremely well. I have been flying back-and-forth from the US to Uganda for 20 years, very often several times a year. This is over and above the best customer service, the best hospitality and the friendliest and most helpful crew I have ever encountered. Cheers to the crew on Flight 003 JFK to NBO.
They deliver what they promise
Great flight. Suggestion: toothbrush, toothpaste, eye mask.
Nice business class
Excellent route from JFK to East Africa!! Thanks for adding it!
Service was particularly good. Glad Kenya Airways is now running direct flights
