And they way they treated me about it makes me never want to fly with them again. Warning: Seats don't recline!!!"

Cons: "Delay in collecting baggage. Probably due to different parking bay further away"

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"

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: "When buying my ticket departure time was 19h25. When getting to the airport departure time on display was 19h35. No indication of delay. So why the difference in times?"

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: "Comfortable plane, excellent feedback from pilots regarding route, changes in altitude etc We had to drop a couple of 1000m to avoid bad turbulence. We were kept in the loop reg what was going on"
Cons: "Budget travel - so no food, entertainment or the like"

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: "Hospitality"
Cons: "All is awesome"

Pros: "Cost and quickness."
Cons: "Tiny cramped plane."

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: "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: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Crying babies"

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: "Crew was very nice. Boarding/unloading was efficient with both front and rear doors being used, though had to use stairs."
Cons: "I couldn't get miles on my American Airlines program, even though they're a partner airline."

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: "Always delayed. Again 2 hours. No communication from Kulula"

Cons: "Pathetic. 2 hour delay"

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."

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: "Flight was extremely late. Food was pretty mediocre."

Cons: "Delayed as usual. 1 week. 3 flights. 3 delayed!"

Pros: "Boarding and disembarking the plane using both front and rear doors was fast and efficient. Luggage was retrieved quickly."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Short and sweet"
Cons: "Too short of a flight."

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: "On time. At long last"

Pros: "Flight itself was not bad"
Cons: "The lead up was poor. Lies were told about delays. Should have departed at 14h35 and eventually only left at 17h24. Due to technical issues and not systems as originally stated. Really!"

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"
