Having just had our Manchester flight cancelled yet again to Mombasa and so consequently had our holiday cancelled I am looking into alternatives. I am not going to travel to Gatwick with First Choice on principle as the holiday had been booked for nine months.
I have heard on this forum that travelling the Amsterdam Nairobi Mombasa route is fairly ok and I see Hayes and Jarvis do this route from Manchester. can anyone please advise me who has travelled this way -is it fairly easy. I realise it will make for a bit of a longer journey but I'm just concerned what happens if you miss connections because of delays etc. Anyone's experiences of this journey would be much appreciated. I know when the Manchester flight has been cancelled before First Choice have said that if we get a flight from Manchester to Gatwick and it's late and we miss the connection they are not obliged to do anything. I was wondering as Hayes and Jarvis flight are advertised as Manchester -Amsterdam - Nairobi - Mombasa and you only get your luggage back for the Nairobi Mombasa bit and have to check in again in Nairobi, does this mean if there is a delay they sort out a new connection as it was made apparent First Choice wouldn't do that going from London. many thanks for any help given as we are trying to make a decision. We have also never used Hayes and Jarvis before.
