Staff insisted that my small bag should go in the hold for the 2 hour flight to Nairobi - even though the flight was practically empty and could easily have been taken into the cabin with me.. In spite of assurances that my bag could be picked up in Nairobi before joining my onward flight to London, it proved impossible...

I don't think they fly to and from Arusha as advertised as both times we had to go to Kilimanjaro to get a...

Flight set off late from Nairobi. No explanation from staff. Possibly the rudest air stewardess on outbound flight. Luggage mislaid for two days. No effort to communicate and I had to collect it myself from airport, so another taxi fare incurred. Return flight to Nairobi over 1 hour late. No explanation from staff.

The flight was great but the aeroplane was so stuffy. The air quality wasn't desirable. However, the staff offered great service to the passengers.

Was a good and clear flight to and from Mwanza from Arusha. The stewards on board were professional and handled everything with ease and a smile especially having so many children aboard... my restless toddler included... Travelled with my parents and sister and baby and was a good flight in all though l would wish that they kept the AC...

This is the WORST airline I’ve ever dealt with. They cancelled our original outbound flight to Serengeti, while we were in Nairobi already, and booked us on another airline 3 hours earlier. Customer service was impossible to reach by phone. Then 1 day before our flight to get home they again rescheduled now 4 hours later which would cause us...
