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

Easy short flight from Johannesburg to Harare. Boarding was slow, flight attendants were friendly. They did a meal service on this short flight, including wine, which was pretty cool.

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

The check-in line was long and people were put in front of me in the line even after I said I had checked in online. It took me an hour to finally get my documents checked and drop my suitcase. It was horrible!

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."
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."
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."
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"
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."
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: "Flight was on time. Efficient crew"
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: "The crew was nice, overall a good flight."
Cons: "Had to pay extra baggage on a long layover, because we couldn’t check our bags all the way. My husband amd I had seats next to each other and then when we got to the gate, they had switched his seat... not ideal traveling with a 4 month old."
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: "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: "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."
Cons: "Staff not so friendly"
Pros: "seats were nice"
Cons: "food was cold. no entertainment for 3-4 hour flight"
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: "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"
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: "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: "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"
Pros: "Not having to change airports in Sao Paulo!"
Cons: "flight operated by Passaredo. Prop plane, waiting area was very basic. At checkin the rep did not want to add my AA Frequent flier number to my reservation. The flight has TAM (oneworld) flight number so I wanted to get credit but was unsuccessful."
Pros: "Flora the flight attendant. Very professional.."
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight without any reason and you sent an email the night before departure and as I was in Africa I couldn't read it. So I had to discovered it by other tourists and then I had to book another flight at a higher rate because of the time and I had to cancel a couple of activities already paid to solve all of this and they offer to reimburse just the cost of the flight in 60 days. Horrible experience"
Pros: "Outbout flight was good and on time the return leg on 26/10/15 was delaayed for almost 5 hours and on landing at ORT international airport we were kept on tarmac inside the plane for over 20 minutes due to lack of buses to take the passengers to the arrival terminal"
Cons: "The available snack was crisp and water for sale Overall and appalling way of doing business and diregard to passengers.."
