ENGLAND TO KENYA
Welcome aboard Kenya Airways flight KQ2101 to Nairobi on this Boeing 787-8. “The Great Rift Valley” will be pushing back from gate B42 very soon - there are no delays today and we are expected to depart bang on time.
It’s likely to be very bumpy out there as we make our climb to cruise with initial tailwinds of 140 kts so please do remain seated until the seat belt sign goes “Bong!”. In the meantime, sit back, relax and take in some of the scenery as we head out over the English Channel on to Belgium, Germany, Austria, Croatia, Bosnia, Greece, Egypt and Sudan before finding Kenya.
It was quite busy at Heathrow this morning but thanks as always to some excellent ATC controlling from ground to tower, Heathrow director and centre it was as completely seamless.
From here on the flight deck and on behalf of the crew we wish you a pleasant stay here in Nairobi and a safe onward journey.

Notes: As always, no hard editing was done to the photos, just some personal preference slight changes to the light and contrast and working with what is available – nothing fake added or taken away.
