Guesses in TZ and KY are that NBO will go daily only with KQ777 and that JRO will get a evening arriving flight 777 which goes back to AMS direct and that Dar will get a morning flight 5 times a week or direct or via Entebbe or NBO. But all depending on the situation in Kenya and the possible rise of safari fees later this year in Tanzania
Changes are definitely in the air for East Africa. AMS NBO is performing very poorly since the beginning of the year and will soon be downgraded to A332 from the planned full pax B744. In the AMS JRO DAR AMS triangle, DAR is not performing as it is supposed to and JRO could likely sustain a terminator flight. All kinds of combinations are being looked at in view of the developing market situation.
