Kenya Airways narrow-body aircraft Boeing 737-800 flies in a two class configuration with 16 Business Class (premier world) recliner seats and 129 standard Economy Class seats.

The economy cabin on Kenya Airways’s 737-800 features 129 standard seats in a 3-3 configuration.

The business class cabin on Kenya Airways’s 737-800 features 16 recliner seats in a 2-2 configuration.

Kenya Airways’ Boeing 737s have a small Business Class cabin.

There are just 4 rows of 4 Business Class seats (16 seats in total), arranged in a 2-2 layout, similar to what you find in First Class on the narrow body aircraft of airlines in the USA.

The Kenya Airways Boeing 737 Business Class seat has a lot of legroom (47 inches or 120 cm), although it has the same width as the seats in Economy Class (17 inch or 43 cm).

The seat can be partly reclined and also has a legrest to enhance the comfort if you want to rest.

The seat controls are located in the center armrest; this armrest also holds a personal entertainment screen (which needs to be pulled out) and a bi-fold tray table that has a decent size, both for working and traveling.

The bulkhead seats have some more legroom and are the best seats on board.

All seats are similar, so there are no really bad seats.

Keep in mind that the window seats don’t offer direct aisle access, which may not be convenient when you are traveling solo and have to climb over your seatmate’s legs to reach the aisle.

A nicely decorated pillow was available though at each seat.

Noise-cancelling headphones were also provided.

Each Business Class seat is equipped with a TV (hidden in the center armrest) and also comes with noise-cancelling headphones to enhance the onboard entertainment experience.

The entertainment selection itself can be navigated by using a handheld remote or by directly touching the screen.

A decent selection of entertainment is offered, with over 100 movies and 48 hours of TV shows.

Kenya Airways became the first airline in Africa to operate a 737-700 with blended winglets.

The retrofitted blended winglets on the 737-700 curve out and up from the wingtip, reducing aerodynamic drag and boosting performance.

Some of the potential improvements include better fuel burn, increased range, improved takeoff performance and obstacle clearance.

Kenya Airways Fleet Embraer E190 Details and Pictures

Kenya Airways Fleet Embraer E190 Details and Pictures. On current fleet, Kenya Airways operates 17 narrow-body regional aircraft Embraer E190.

Kenya Airways operates their Embraer E-190 on short-haul flights.

The plane has 12 business class seats and 84 economy seats.

It’s a compact plane, but the seats are still 17 inches wide.

One thing I enjoyed about the Embraer planes is that the seats were a more cushioned leather, particularly in business.

While shorter Kenya Airways flights are on older 737-800s and the Embraer-190, the airline gets kudos for its eager, friendly staff, free alcoholic beverages, and full meals on most flights.

Kenya Airways Fleet Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner Details and Pictures

Kenya Airways Fleet Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner Details and Pictures. On current fleet, Kenya Airways operates 9 wide-body aircraft Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

Kenya Airways operates their Boeing 787-8 on medium to long-haul flights.

Kenya Airways took delivery of its first Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner in 2014.

The 234-seat aircraft feature a two-class configuration consisting of economy and business classes.

Powering the aircraft is the GEnx engines, which Kenya has chosen over the Rolls Royce Trent 1000 engines that have been crippling airlines such as Virgin Atlantic and Norwegian Long Haul.

The engines are tried and tested on ultra-long-haul routes such as Nairobi to New York, as Qantas uses the engines for its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner fleet which fly daily transpacific flights between Australia and the U.S., as well as daily service between Perth and London.

With the Dreamliner being the largest and only long-haul aircraft in its fleet, it serves all of Kenya’s intercontinental routes, serving cities such as London, Paris, Bangkok and, now, New York.

Kenya Airways Fleet Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout

Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner Kenya Airways flies in a two class configuration with 30 flat bed Business Class seats and 204 standard Economy Class seats.

Kenya Airways Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner business class as the airline’s premium cabin, called Premier World, was voted Africa’s best business class by the World Travel Awards in 2017 and has been highly praised by travel bloggers and frequent travelers compared to other African airlines.

On the Dreamliner, the five-row cabin is configured 2-2-2 in paired lie-flat seats separated by the middle galley and boarding door for a total of 30 seats.

The rear business class cabin is more private, featuring only two rows.

A business class seat features 74 inches of pitch and 31 inches of width, and comes with an amenity kit and a Kenya Airways-branded pillow and blanket.

The seat offers a personal reading light and bounds of storage space.

When in an upright position, the seats feature 74-inches of pitch.

At every seat, you’ll find a power outlet, USB charging port, personal movable reading light, cup holder, tethered remote for the in-flight entertainment and noise-canceling headphones.

Since the seats are paired, there is no direct aisle access for window seats.

However, when not in lie flat mode, there is plenty of room to walk passed your seatmate without disturbing them in the slightest.

The safety card and magazines are found in the center storage space between the two footrests under the in-flight entertainment screen.

The screens are on the back of the sat in front of you except in the bulkhead seats where they are smaller and stored in the center console.

The headphone jack, power outlet and remote is in the corner of the seat, easily accessible when in lie-flat mode but probably less so when in full upright mode.

The in-flight entertainment remote, headphone jack and power outlet can be found tucked away behind the center console. 

Storage space is paramount as every free space in the seat can be used to store items for the flight, reducing the need to get up as the window seats do not have direct aisle access.

The remaining 204 seats on the aircraft belong to the economy class cabin of the aircraft.

The seats, arranged in a 3-3-3, are notably different than their counterparts on other aircraft in terms of cushioning.

Economy seats feature 32.2-inches of pitch and 18.5-inches of width.

Each seat features an adjustable headrest covered by a Kenya Airways-branded headrest cover.

Additionally, only one row does not have a window on either side, row 32.

Kenya Airways economy features some of the most legroom in international economy cabins at 32.2-inches of pitch.

The headrests are covered by an extended head cover, but they are still adjustable.

Additionally, the layered seatback pockets are higher up to allow for more shin space.

Each seatback features a standard screen, coat hangar, remote and USB charging port.

The seatback pockets have been adjusted to allow for more shin space.

The seats feature similar amenities to business class such as a 110 volt AC power outlet found under the seat, USB charging port located in the seatback in front of you, coat hanger, headphones, tethered remote and a standard sized in-flight entertainment screen, as well as a pillow and blanket.

The tray table is also foldable so you can choose between half open for drinks and fully open for a meal.
