Deplaning suggestion: Inited could take a page from other countries airlines and ask that we remain seated until theorie in front of us deplanes. Easier on everyone that way

Loved the customer service and the fact that everything was on time, the served refreshments are a cherry on top

Flight was moved forward by 2 hours with 3 days notice. This meant I could not connect from flight from Johannesburg. So did not take the flight and drove to Kasane. Will never use Air Botswana unless absolutely necessary. Mark

There was no entertainment, but that is not expected on a flight less than 2 1/2 hours. Uber clean aircraft, good boxed meal and friendly flight attendants. Very please with the experience

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"
Pros: "Time keeping, plane was well sized and okay"
Cons: "Didn’t get a single sensible meal!"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "For a short flight on a small aircraft nothing could have been better."
Pros: "It's a shorter flight so, no IFE. The front row of the business section was nice. I'm glad that reserving those seats worked out for this flight, although it didn't on all the other flights."
Pros: "flight was on time food and drink"
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: "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."
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"
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: "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: "Quick cool spacious"
Cons: "They left us in a hot hot bus for a long time at terminal and on the run way."
Pros: "The plane from Antanarivo as on time - quite an accomplishment for Madagascar!"
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."
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: "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: "short, easy flight"
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: "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."
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!"
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"

Boarding / ground crew appalling. - messed up Signage for priority vs normal queues. Reversed it by placing signage incorrectly. - when advised of their error, they argued with passengers. - then asked for the “priority” queue to board after having being told the queue was the normal queue. Wrong queue. - then fought with the passengers who were asked to board from that queue because they weren’t priority customers!! Shocker!

Crew was really excellent and price was great.

Good, efficient boarding. Very cramped, uncomfortable seat with thin padding. Hot aircraft, no individual vents to try and source own airflow. Air hostess didn’t know the difference between a receipt and a credit card transaction slip.

Great experience I really enjoyed flying with SAFAIR and looking forward to the next flight.

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 .

Pros: "crew insisting everyone covers mouth and nose with the mask"
Cons: "surprised to see no separation between people,"
Pros: "Excellent COVID protocol"
Cons: "More worried about profit than covid"
Pros: "Value for money."
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"
