Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was great"

Pros: "Time keeping, plane was well sized and okay"
Cons: "Didn’t get a single sensible meal!"

Pros: "Attendant was professional"
Cons: "It was okay"

Cons: "No entertainment available, and the BUQ departure lounge could be improved"

Pros: "I was forced to give my carry on bag to be put in the hold. They said that it would not fit in the plane. When we got to our destination, i found that a large sum of money from my bag was stolen,"
Cons: "Security of our baggage should be better. And if you cannot fit the standard carry on bags, then please say so when people make their booking so that they can pack accordingly and do not bring carry on bags that they have to give up at the last minute. it is impossible to remove items last minute."

Pros: "Tayla the stewardess was very sweet!"
Cons: "Nothing. It’s a small plane!"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Luggage was riffled through and item stolen"

Cons: "Delayed flight with close connecting flight and none of the flight or ground crew were able to communicate with the connecting flight gate agents. No priority for deplaning and tarmac shuttle was given to those with close connecting flight. Had to sprint through airport and barely made connection."

Pros: "Amazing crew, wonderful short flight and delicious snack. Could not be any better."
Cons: "Just continue the wonderful service."

Pros: "Everything was good"

Pros: "There was hardly anyone on the flight so I got a row to myself! Also the flight was fast and smooth and landed on time despite boarding about 45 minutes late"
Cons: "At the beginning they needed 8 people to move up front for take off which was weird but obviously not anyone’s fault, and if the flight was full wouldn’t have happened, so it’s probably not something that could be done differently but was just weird."

Pros: "Seats were noticeably more spacious than comparable airlines. Good entertainment system and selection of films."
Cons: "Location of plug sockets, very difficult to use."

Cons: "The staff at Vic Falls airport tried to charge me several hundred dollars for extra bag fees. The fee kept changing depending on who I was speaking with and when I agreed to pay with my AMEX they said they did not take AMEX so they eventually waived the fee. This was only done after showing the manager a printed copy of my booking which listed that passengers are allowed 2 checked bags each. This was all done in the office of the South African Airways who I assume was managing the Airlink flight."

Cons: "Johannesburg Airport was terrible and every where we turned in the airport we got misinformation and people tried to scam us for tips including airport employees."

Pros: "It was good just the way it is."
Cons: "Why put cheese on the cross bun not good at all."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Efficient crew"

Pros: "Airport check in went quickly and smoothly! Waiting lounge was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Cons: "Lazy agent said we were too late but bags not booked through on connection which helped cause delay"

Pros: "Pilot effectively communicated about the fueling delay and the imminent storm."
Cons: "Refueling issue : After boarding we had to sit on the aircraft to wait for the refueling driver to arrive and fuel the aircraft. This resulted in a delay of some 20 minutes. ssue"

Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system works very poorly, it need to be upgraded! The quality of the image is very poor, the touchscreen does not respond easily and the stream is often interrupted by clips of ither movies or programs. This is unacceptable for a 14+ hours-long journey!"

Pros: "We were on a small cramped plane. The food was horrible."
Cons: "Rude employees at the counter in the airport."

Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. We barely made our connection flight in Johannesburg, which resulted in us having to run through the airport. We did not have time to get dinner."

Cons: "With over 1.5 hrs to check in, guards allowed others to cut in front and my son was told no problem, he would not miss his flight. He did miss his flight and couldn’t apply his ticket to another flight. Had to pay in full to buy another ticket for a flight 5.5 hrs later. Not good!!"

Pros: "The plane from Antanarivo as on time - quite an accomplishment for Madagascar!"

Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"

Pros: "the seats"
Cons: "Food was cold"

Pros: "Comfortable transfer to Skukuza from Johannesburg"
Cons: "The flight was not listed on the departure monitors in the hall where we arrived. We had a hard time finding the terminal and then the check-in counters and the departure gate. If the flight would have been listed it would have been easier, no asking around required."

Cons: "Staff not so friendly"

Pros: "seats were nice"
Cons: "food was cold. no entertainment for 3-4 hour flight"

Cons: "The flights were not operated by South African Airways, so when we arrived to Johannesburg we had to take our luggage and register it again and make a second check-in. Because both flights were operated by airlines different from South African Airways we were not able to accumulate our One World miles."

Cons: "Spraying a very potent chemical in an already crowded small plane that send people home sick is not the best way to treat passengers. We do recognize there is probably a reason for doing it. Has the airline consider the impact on those with respiratory issue? Some passenger could not stop coughing until their final destination. Hope they find a better way."

Pros: "Everything was good - timely, service, check in, etc."

Pros: "The flight attendant was really friendly and accommodating. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Can add a few more options for snacks. The chips and candy are pretty crappy."

Pros: "Left inn time and arrived a bit early only 12 14 passengers in a 36 pAX plane..."
Cons: "Small Cramped seats No power plugs...average food"

Pros: "Seats wider (or seemed to be so) than most economy flights. Flight crew courteous."
Cons: "Have lived in Madagascar for almost two decades and have never seen such disorganized boarding. No signage, staff all the same uniforms (thus no visual clues), no gate noted on boarding pass. Very frustrating. Two Airlink flights were leaving at the same time due to a delay for one flight, so better communication needed. Plane toilet disgusting and would not flush."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I do not understand why the staff wait for all passengers to be on board and close the door to spray this unbreathable air spray. I was suffocating during a few minutes and coughed during the whole flight. My throat still hurts. The cheese sandwich was terrible."

Pros: "Efficient on time no hassle"

Pros: "Small plane but a very short flight, so its fine."
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Cold food. SAA used to serve hot meals. What happened to that?"

Pros: "short, easy flight"

Cons: "Lost baggage. Sent to Jouburg instead. Second day at Cape Grace in dirty safari clothes. Still no bags."

Pros: "It all went as expected. Today, that is excellent"

Pros: "I enjoyed looking out the window as we flew. Interesting countryside compared to what we have where I live in the U.S."
Cons: "Maun airport is small but it gets the job done. The people at the SAA counter were not well versed with checking bags to your final destination when you continued on from Johannesburg."

Pros: "South African Airlines is like flying years ago when you were given respect and special treatment. It's my favorite airline, by far. Actually, it's the only airline I like to fly. I've flown Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and United to South Africa - big mistake. SAA is what I wish all other airlines are. They are first rate."

Cons: "Delayed flight due to airplane malfunction and caused late arrival and could not make our connecting flight. Had to argue for support to stay in Johannesburg due to the inconvenience"

Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"

Cons: "THe check in lady on the flight from Cape Town, was surly, rude, unhelpful, arrogant...just awful"

Pros: "Quick check in"
Cons: "Quants needs to upgrade they are falling behind in th bussness class game quiet badly This is my third trip in 4 years from Sydney to JHB and the service, seating etc is the same Tiered plans tiered overall"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "People were not the friendly except for the stewardess"
