As a result of a pilot strike, Kenya Airways has been forced to cancel hundreds of flights, and many passengers have missed their connections.
Because of the ongoing strike, Kenya Airways has ceased normal operations, and stranded passengers have expressed their frustrations and disappointment.
The Kenya Pilots Association has stated that they will not return to regular duties until management restores their provident funds, which were temporarily frozen.
The majority of the passengers who were unable to fly because of the continuing strike were quick to complain about the damages caused by the stalemate on Saturday, including the extra costs of lodging and other personal staff while they waited for the airline to resolve the issue and address them once operations resumed.
“I left my hotel because there was nowhere to stay; we were told to wait outside and would be contacted soon; however, I don’t have access to the internet and don’t have a local SIM card, making it impossible for anyone to contact me or let me know if everything is okay?” one of the passagers asked.
Kenya could lose as much as ksh300 million due to the widespread cancellation of Kenya Airways flights on Saturday morning after pilots began their strike.
