Destination Cities: Bangkok (BKK)
Cabin: Business Class
Airlines: Kenya Airways (SkyTeam)
Dates: Monday, Wednesday, Friday until May (Summer) 2020

Thoughts and Suggestions
I’ve personally never flown Kenya Airways, but from what I’ve heard, it’s pretty decent. I think the starting fares of $1700s are excellent, especially if you have a plan in mind to visit Thailand. Furthermore, you may potentially earn a lot of frequent flyer miles on this trip alone. If you any further questions, please feel free to ask me.
