Good prices to Kenya have just popped up from several US cities. For Seattle and Atlanta these prices are notable price cuts; the discount is a bit less for New York, but the itinerary is a bit shorter than normal, making for a solid deal. Both Delta and her partners, and United and her partners are fueling the sale from different places. Availability is wide open for NYC, but more limited from the other cities; the discount is limited to fall for all but New York, which is through next Spring. The weather should be solid for fall travel, as the real rainy season starts in January.

  • New York JFK from $570 (Delta, Air France)
  • Houston from $630 (KLM, Delta)
  • Atlanta from $635 (Lufthana, United)
  • Seattle from $635 (Delta, KLM)

Booking the Atlanta fare is a bit odd, as I could only get it to populate from SkyScanner; all other cities are easily found on Google Flights. Direct booking is best, as when these fares appear on trusted OTAs they are usually slightly higher if available at all.

These are economy or basic prices, all of which include 2 checked bags and meals. Seat selection is free at check-in, but costs extra at booking with all airlines, from $28+. All layovers are in Europe, with Seattle adding Canada stops. Africa sales are a bit rare, so hop on these fares if they work for you.
