I checked the cost of a one way economy ticket from Nairobi (Kenya) to Entebbe (Uganda). I used flight24.com to get the information.
I clicked the button and was given 8 choices:
- 2 low-cost no-name carriers offer the trip at US $125 inclusive of tax.
- 3 scheduled flights with United Aviation at US $165 inclusive of tax
- 3 scheduled flights with Kenya Airways at US $286 inclusive of tax
Separately, I found out that Air Uganda has a round trip fare for US $199 excluding taxes. That’s rounds trip and the others are one way.
Kenya Airways is a whooping execrably expensive US $286. No wonder they make so much profit.
Anyway, today being Sunday, relax and listen to what my friend, Edward, posted on his face book account. While you listen, think about Kenya Airways. I don’t know why they charge so much considering the majority of their staff, except the top honcho, get lousy pay compare to their associates KLM and Air France.
