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 .

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!!!"
