Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was mazing and the seats are so comfortable."
Cons: "To me everything was excellent from the captain to the flight attendants i was impressed i have been to all domestic flights but Airlink is the best and after yesterday flight i decided that Airlink is the one for me onwards. The only thing i can suggest is the points program then the sky will be the limit for you. Keep up the good work guys BIG UP."

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

Cons: "good short flight"

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"

Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "For a short flight on a small aircraft nothing could have been better."

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

Pros: "flight was on time food and drink"

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."

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: "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: "Boarding was on time, and flight went smoothly. Loved the timing, giving me the whole day to explore the area and move on to the National Parks in the area. Breakfast at Uppington Airport is the best!"
Cons: "Nothing"

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."

Cons: "We were very upset as we missed our flight to Maseru due to circumstances beyond our control. As a result we had to pay for another set of tickets and pay for s hotel room as no other fflights that day. We arrived to airport in plenty of time however there was a backup at immigration. We waited 10-15 minutes than an employee had everyone in line move to a different line. By the time he slowly walked us over our plane had already boarded. The bus was still there but we were not allowed on. Also, the representative said the boarding was delayed 3 minutes. Actually they boarded early. All along way we were assured there was no problem making flight."

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: "Easy process to get to Joberg. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Cons: "Similar to some other reviewers we had to completely exit the terminal at JNB and then check in for our international flight sequence on Qatar, this was easy but caused a little anxiety, especially after learning that the total checked baggage for one person on the air link is 30kgs (66lbs) which is less than standard international weights. We had to pay extra for the “overweight” bags but the cost was reasonable. I would use the airline again."

Pros: "Quick cool spacious"
Cons: "They left us in a hot hot bus for a long time at terminal and on the run way."

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."

Cons: "No priority boarding. 15 minutes waiting inside a cramped bus. First three rows in plane are curtailed off but seats are exactly the same as the rest of the plane. Beverage selection was poor and again same as in economy. The lunch was the only difference: a plate of chicken instead of a sandwich. SO WHAT DID I GET FOR PAYING BUSINESS? a curtain, a plate of chicken and exclusive access to the toilet at the head of the plane. Shame on SAA for selling this as a SAA business flight. Or Kayak for wrong advertisement. In the future I will definitely not pay for business as it is absolutely not worth it and will try to fly this portion with Air Botswana"

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: "Efficient on time no hassle"

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

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

Pros: "Pilot and Stewardess were good and airport was nice. I appreciated the flights from Cape Town to Skukuza and from Skukuza to Johanesberg."
Cons: "Airport crew not able to answer questions outside of their scope of responsibility. I asked a question several times and reply was "good afternoon". finally another person helped and directed me to another part of the airport where I asked the same question and received blank faces until supervisor showed up."

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."

Pros: "Pleasant experience. Gate personnel and crew were friendly and helpful; plane and seating were comfortable."
Cons: "No flight information signage at gate, and gate boarding public announcements were distorted. Besides being distorted, it was hard to understand the 'English' translated announcement."

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!"

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"

Pros: "Efficient, pleasant experience. Coming from the US, it was unusual to have complimentary meal and alcoholic beverages on a short domestic flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing and disorganized. I think better communication of procedures would've helped."

Pros: "Great time to arrive in Cape Town. Late Afternoon, head into Cape Town against the flow of traffic so it is an easy ride. Quick, convenient."
Cons: "It is an expensive flight"

Pros: "Check in laddy was disinterested, arrogant and rude. Horrible experience...she was a smart a**. I complained to her supervisor"

Cons: "On time performance"

Cons: "The airplane was very old with non reclining seats and no entertainment coming back. The pilot and flight attendant seemed to be in training and confused and that made all of us uncomfortable."

Pros: "The girl at the check-in counter was efficient and interlined my daughter's bags to Sydney. Much appreciated. The flight was almost on time, which was good."

Pros: "The snacks were wonderful. The crew were amazing!"
Cons: "The plane is small and noisy, but the ride was not bad!"

Pros: "Getting to my destination safely."
Cons: "Not being sat next to my wife. Only having one food option because the other options were no longer available. Seating was very tight."

Pros: "Plenty of empty seats so extra space."
Cons: "Most Air Botswana flights have a decent sandwich but just rubbish snack food on this one."

Cons: "Late and clearly Air Botswana knew it would be late. No information to passengers other than "wait and it will be here...""

Pros: "We got to Botswana on time. They do not inform passengers ahead of time about the spraying of pesticides. I'm going to switch to SAA from now on. Bring something to cover up during spraying."
Cons: "The bathroom door broke off and the attendant just ignored it"

Pros: "Small aircraft, good service on board with a friendly staff."
Cons: "It is too expensive"

Pros: "Quick efficient service"

Cons: "Did not allow us to board after late arrival due to air link plane malfunction. plane had not left the airport yet with 45 minutes left until departure and staff from air Botswana would not help us at all. People were not friendly at all. we were delayed by a full day due to their lack Of support."

Cons: "The flight attendant continuously communicated to me in her native language despite the fact that I did not understand. They should be informed that not all Africans speak the native language."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour."

Pros: "Everything was on time :)"

Pros: "Easy Boarding No Fuss"

Pros: "Quick and comfortable - very professional"

Pros: "The airport is easy to navigate & people are helpful. There was no entertainment and minimal food...should have an option for n/a."

Pros: "Great ride, service and best landing ever!"
Cons: "Snack box was yucky and high sodium Yeah- I agree- disinfecting is unpleasant, especially for those of us who have sinus problems. Spraying should be done prior to passenger. Boarding."

Cons: "The flight attendant's spraying of air freshener/ disinfectant in the cabin just before take-off was unusual and unpleasant."

Pros: "They accommodated my vegetarian need & served everything very efficiently and fast"
Cons: "The crew made us nervous because the safety talk was a little too much in details ..."
