    South African Airways Economy

    6.6

    Overall, I found my experience as a traveler on South African Airways to be pleasurable. There were movies to keep me entertained during the long flight. I was however seated in-between two rather large gentleman, one of which didn't smell that great, so that was not a great experience. The ...

    I had an excellent experience with South African Airways when flying from London Heathrow to Johannesburg. The queue for check in was fairly long but moved quickly enough and I had plenty of time so it did not really matter. Having arrived air side at the departure gate an hour prior to departure ...

    South African Airways Business (short haul)

    on: B737-800

    3.3

    JNB/Lusaka B 737. This was the connecting flight from JNB from my Air Namibia flight. Boarding was via a bus, so less than ideal, especially as the plane was parked 2 away from the inbound Air Namibia flight. Business cabin had about 8/9 of us and seemed rather dismal, though the seats were ...

    I don't sleep unless flat out so even with 'recline' I am unable to sleep on a plane On the 14+ hour flight from New York to Johannesburg...the lie-flat seats in business class on South African allowed me a full night's sleep. Absolutely wonderful. Service is prompt and great South African ...

    on: A330-200

    7.4

    I flew return LHR to CPT via JNB, so got to experience the newish SAA A330 service 3 times (one leg was 737). My overall opinion is that I'd be happy to fly SAA A330 again, but wouldn't go out of my way for it. So, what's to like?............. Well, for starters, the seat (a window on each ...

    We had an excellent experience on this trip from LHR - CPT and JNB - LHR. CHECK-IN We arrived in plenty of time and were pleased to see that as all check-in desks were open there was actually no queue and we could walk straight up to the desk. The lady behind the counter was very friendly and ...

    Travelling with my daughter on this LHR - JNB flight, I was disappointed, when checking in on line, to find our pre allocated seats had been unallocated and we were haphazardly allocated two seats at the very back of the cabin just in front of the economy class basanets, despite my being an LH ...

    Recently flew on South African from Johannesberg to Cape Town having connected on AF from Paris. We arrived at terminal A in JNB and our onward flight left from terminal B. The transfer route was a long walk and not too clearly signposted. SAA has a premium check-in area for business passengers ...

    Check In: I tried to check in online for our flight SA235 from London Heathrow to Johannesburg (connecting on to Harare). I was travelling with my wife and 16 month old daughter. The online check in worked quite well but, when I saw that the seat selection was not better than the seat I had already ...

    Having had a sleepless night on a Lufthansa ski slope seat on the outbound leg from FRA - JNB my return JNB - MUC on South African was a very enjoyable sleepy business! The seat in all positions was comfortable and the overall cabin ambience excellent. Service was attentive and the food well ...
