This morning it was time to fly to Nairobi, my first flight visiting Kenya. Always exciting to tick off a new country on my FR24 map.
KLM would be doing the honours of flying me from Edinburgh to Amsterdam first on the Boeing 737-800, PH-BGC, 13 years old. This aircraft has been refitted with the new Boeing Sky Interior and seats; also had wifi installed.
View from seat 4A.
Takeoff was scheduled at 0600. Slot time of 15mins and began the takeoff roll at 0615 for a flying time of 1hr 10mins at a cruising altitude of 39,000ft.
At check in, I was offered an ‘upgrade’ to Europe Business class for £48 due to my FB Platinum status. This was also offered on my flight to NBO for ~£750; I opted to remain in Economy for the AMS-NBO sector.
Breakfast was presented lovely in the KLM box however was rather disappointing (in my opinion). Lots of bread and some tomatoes; some cold meats etc would have been nice. Yes, I had a white wine for breakfast to compensate for the dull offering!
Crew were very friendly and attentive as usual on my KLM flights.
We were treated to some stunning views on the way to Amsterdam and generally clear, smooth skies.
We landed smoothly and on time on the Schiphol Polderbaan and made our long taxi journey to the terminal.
I had a few hours connection to enjoy the KLM Crown Lounge before the flight to Nairobi.
Another good flight with KLM. Catering in Europe Business class somewhat disappointing.
