Thank you for the sms updates on the flight and baggage. Thank you for being on time

Pay to eat/drink.

Unfortunately diverted to Bloemfontein due to medical emergency

Personnel was nice and efficient

all went smooth

Complimentary snacks...but they sell everything

My bag is completely damaged, I wish they could handle our bags with care .I m so heartbroken .

Cons: "Boarding was interminable. Standing around waiting in the jetway"
Pros: "Seat could be wider or a business class option would be welcome"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Improve leg room"
Cons: "service and punctuality all good"
Cons: "FlySafair forced me to pay for my second bag - even though my ticket was clearly marked "2 bags" all the way to Cape Town. Totally disgusted with this airline, not honoring the ticket. And they way they treated me about it makes me never want to fly with them again. Warning: Seats don't recline!!!"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "No entertainment, but then you are a budget airline"
Pros: "Timely service is their main priority. Excellent"
Pros: "Professional staff from airport right through to the aircraft staff. Great service with a smile!"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The planes seem fresh and new. The staff were efficient and professional. Although a budget airline, we thought they offered value for money."
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Although expectations weren't high, they surpassed them."
Pros: "It's alright, safe flight and pilot good landing skills. I particularly liked their crew's sense of humour."
Cons: "If only we were served drinks, but that's asking too much."
Pros: "Take off and landing was smooth"

Only flight that was on time. Thank you for that!

Cons: "I was in the row next to the toilets which meant a constant stream of people using the toilet and queuing outside of it that makes sleeping impossible. The noise of the toilet flushing every two minutes is disturbing and the smell from the toilet really is rather unpleasant. Having paid for economy plus I expect a reasonable comfortable seat. Which is the point of paying the premium, otherwise I’d have just bought an economy seat. It’s poor design that creates an unpleasant experience for your customers."
Cons: "Baggage control very bad. Waited an hour for the carousel to deliver the bag"
Cons: "Baggage control very bad. Waited an hour for the carousel to deliver the bag"
Cons: "Proper communication and oversight of the boarding process. Tell us to stand in 2 queues a third one develops and we need to sort out unhappiness. Almost like the taxis! And as usual departed late"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Reasonable amount of leg room"
Cons: "Good value for money"
Pros: "Easy to check in - yummy sandwich and friendly crew"
Cons: "Comfort - paid food by card only available"
Cons: "No window at seat row 11, no warning about this at check-in"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because Kiwi did not pay the airline. It cost me tons of extra money, and seriously delayed my trip!"
Pros: "The airport staff went to great length to try and assist me but couldn't due to things not in their control."
Cons: "Checking in was a huge hassle as they checked by bags in all the way to Dublin but could only give me a boarding pass for one flight."
Cons: "Flight was 1h 20 min late and everyone in the George area immediately commented that this was entirely normal. Thank goodness I did not have urgent meetings to go to as I would have had to reschedule or miss them altogether."
Pros: "Cost and quickness."
Cons: "Tiny cramped plane."
Pros: "Cost, speed of boarding and un-boarding."
Cons: "No baggage on arrival and no warning from the pilot who would of known since no one on the flight got their luggage because they were never loaded."
Pros: "The frenlynes"
Cons: "Delayed with no communication from the airline"
Pros: "Attendants are professional in their approach. Flight is typically not on time at arrival (origin) but the Kulula teams are usually able to turn the plane around and be flying back in time to meet their take off times."
Pros: "Hot meal a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "One hour delay. One piece of baggage lost, which arrived the next day."
Pros: "Relatively quick boarding procedures"
Cons: "My bag was clearly tampered with as is now the norm when flying domestically in South Africa."
Cons: "Limited legspace. I'm tall. Flysafair is better in that regard. They no longer take cash for payment, which could be a pain for some people."
Pros: "The staff were fantastic, as usual."
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Color green is nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed multiple times. Nothing complemtry even with long delays. Forced to pay for water. Online extra bag purchase was not working. After calling in, their system was also down. Forced me to pay extra price at the airport."
Pros: "The way to do any flight is to close your eyes and dream of better days. I did just that. I was left alone. That’s all I need."
Cons: "Kulula flights have a tendency to run late as the day goes on. And being barked at by ground staff whilst waiting to board is getting too common with Kulula. There’s a way to do things professionally so we don’t feel like we’re cattle being crammed into a pen. The boarding process was cumbersome. Waiting 15 min on an air bridge is not the norm."
Pros: "Boarded on time and for a very full flight without a hitch"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Missed connection by 3 min due to not booking bags through as they do not have an agreement with SAA. Absolutly no sympathy for $400USD rebooking of flights!"
Pros: "Caring and courteous crew."
Cons: "Crampped more than 90mins late -- made me miss the last train and cost me a large taxi fare to get home! Terribly disappointing experience. The morning flight to East London was also over an hour late because (according to the Captain) the aircraft was late in coming out of its weekly service! Hope never having to resort to Kulula ever again!"
Pros: "Once the boarding started, it was efficient, and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, and there was a lack of timeous communication around these delays making the process rather inconvenient. The airconditioner aboard wasn't working which made the environment extremely unpleasant."
Pros: "Almost only flight of the day on time."
Pros: "They can actually be on time. The best way of winning me over. Do as you say."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "Being delayed by 5 hours with a baby is not my idea of fun..."
Cons: "Pathetic. 2 hour delay"
Pros: "Made a plan to have a BA plane ready iso of us having to be delayed. Well done"
Cons: "Why not have the ladders ready when we arrive from Cape Town?"
Cons: "Late as usual albeit due to weather conditions!"
Cons: "They give my seats to other passengers and the move me and my girlfriend to different plac, although I have been charged for the seats."
Cons: "Except for nuts and regular drinks no food was available that was complimentary."
Pros: "Drink Service and lunch"
Cons: "No air!"
Cons: "It was pathetic. Our flight was delayed and we had a connecting flight in Jhb. We were promised we will get priority disembarkment and there will be someone to escourt us through customs. We flight was supposed to land at 6 30 and we had to have boarded our next flight by 7:05pm. To my horrow we landed in Jhb at 7 10. Only got off the plane at 7:15 because the stairs took forever to come. There was no priority disembarkment and there was nobody waiting to escort us through customs and passport control. It was a complete nightmare having to jump queues and running to catch the next flight. Will never fly kulula again ."
Cons: "knew 24 hours in advance and still no resolve"
Pros: "Boarding and disembarking the plane using both front and rear doors was fast and efficient. Luggage was retrieved quickly."
Pros: "excellent service"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "With a little tail wind, this flight can be as short as 1.5 hours! Crew was positive and quick with great service. Baggage collected within 20 minutes of landing."
Pros: "E very thing, the Super friendly cabin crew,the outstanding friendliness of our wheel chair attendants, the friendly reception at check-in"
Cons: "Zero,"
Cons: "Shuttle to plane stood stationary for 15mins."
Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "I checked in for a flight and chose my seat, which was no issue until i got to the gate. I was summarily moved 11 rows back without any explanation. normally not an issue, but when i had 1c and wanted needed to get out quickly, you can see the issue. neither the ground staff nor crew were interested in the issues and gave no reason for the move"
Cons: "Very sticky, hot inside. Why are SAA passengers flying on Kulula? Baggage collection at carousel was for a SAA flight and a Kulula flight."
Cons: "we did not take this flight due to massive wildfires in Port Elizabeth and the surrounding areas (with 5+ people dead)"
Cons: "Because we missed the flight from Johannesburg to port Elizabeth BA cancelled our flight to Durban and we did not find out until we arrived at the airport. We had to book new tickets at the going rate to get on the same flight. BA also told us our other 3 flights had also been canceled. Fortunately Emirates was able to fix those 3 later"
Cons: "Tampering with my luggage. Bag was opened and lost Deoderant and Contact lenses."

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

On my flight from Cape Town to London I was not notified that the flight had changed and missed the flight. British Airways would not help with a different flight and basically said I need to buy another ticket and fight for a refund. I need to speak with someone to get this resolved and reimbursed for the additional ticket I had to buy along with extra COVID tests I had to take, not to mention additional hotel stay and missed income from work. Please contact me as soon as possible.

It was cancelled and I was forced to buy another ticket.

Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Cons: "I really did not find anything to improve, it was a pleasant flight"
Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Cons: "No assistance to mothers with strollers. While boarding, picked a few people randomly to inspect our bags right before getting on a plane. Held us in a separate room including me who is single mother traveled with 2 year old for 3 flights in the row. My son didnt get his meal. Also had to ask for any juice. Horrible menu. Late food serving, but quick to clean up in a rash. Loud people on phones and nobody stopped them. Horrible experience."
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Pros: "The crew members are super friendly and caring."
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Pros: "All was good and on time"
Cons: "Just be good, they could still offer free drinks or water to passengers"
Cons: "I missed my international connection because flight was three hours late."
Cons: "Gate agent talked me into checking a piece of luggage. Lost 3 pieces of luggage for 2 days. Plane was late so very stressful making our connection. Had to run thru Heathrow."
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing. Pretty good for a short trip."
Pros: "On time, good service."

Cons: "Delayed, twice!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, new release films"

Pros: "Friendly crew and a good value for money flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system getting a bit long in the tooth on 747. Hot breakfast could have done with some colour"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"
Pros: "Par from below the flight was great as always"
Cons: "CSD was rude and not nice to his fellow staff member in economy. Small delay but not a common thing"
Pros: "Plane kept to time schedule fabulous"
Cons: "Traveling economy"
Pros: "Crew, boarding process, food, cleanliness, movie choices were all good."
Cons: "There should still be more leg room in coach. The screen in just my seat had a "loose connection", as it was a bit blurry sometimes -- enough to be annoying, but I still watched a movie OK. No other screens around me had the problem; they were crystal-clear."
Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Cons: "Mixed up boarding arrangements, length of time to disembark, being coached to the terminal. ok these add up as stress for business travelers on a deadline for meetings"

Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Cons: "The woman who worked the British Airways desk in Helsinki and checked our bags is not suited for a customer service position. The screens on the British Airways long haul planes are tiny and difficult to operate. A 2,5 h flight where you can't even get water complimentary is appalling. Honestly all of your competitors offer a snack and beverages complimentary even if the flight is only 45 min. The boarding for London to Dallas flight was very confusing and could have been made easier with grouping the boarding instead of tons of people piling up to rush in at once."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Seat choice"
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "They were awful"
Cons: "The boarding gate was not posted until 25 min before plane was scheduled to depart, the departure was 20 min late, Customs at Lisbon took 1.5 hours for a simple stamp on my American passport. The aircraft was packed full, not even water was offered without charge, the service even at that was barely fast enough to make one pass of the passengers before landing, the aisles were continually blocked with service carts selling so how are you supposed to make a bathroom break?"
Pros: "Staff are all great. No fuss and every thing on time."
Cons: "It's economy class and always cramped. Standards slipping in the toilets a little. Seats are getting worn. The entertainment choice could be better. Food quality has also gone down"
Pros: "I generally fly business or first but not this flight I felt like we were treated like we were in first class the attendants was great. Really great. I became a believer in British on this flight!"
Cons: "Damaged suitcase"
Pros: "Nice high tech tvs to watch movies and tv shows"
