Cons: "Wish SAA doesn’t stop their operation, friendly cabin crew and tremendous professional on deck crew"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "Check-in was extremely slow. Some of the screens for the movies did not work. This was not good. The maintenance on the plane is bad. That’s quite a scary thought!"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant"
Cons: "The Vegetarian options need to be updated. There are so many plant-based meat options that SAA should adopt to their meal plans."
Pros: "The ease of boarding, flight was half empty so lots of space and confort, the seats are well spaced so lots of leg room."
Cons: "No entertainment, the tvs were not working."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, very personable and were able to get drinks and food out within the 40 min flight."
Cons: "Old plane and the one engine started to make a screeching noise which carried on for about 20 min."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment system was not working properly and it was quite challenging for my kids with whom I traveled."
Pros: "Seats were as comfortable as you could expect for economy. If you get an open seat next to you it is a bonus. Entertainment system is very good (screen quality best I’ve seen in economy; selection ok, heavy S Africa influence)."
Cons: "The policy regarding switching off all electronic equipment before take off (including dressers). Switch off not only put to airplane mode. I’m unclear way they have this requirement when the US does not."
Cons: "My entertainment center didn't work for the first 6 hours of the flight - along with virtually the entire plane. Then it worked but a lot of people's didn't, however it would skip 2-3 seconds every 5min or so."
Pros: "Newer plan and the entertainment was pretty good."
Cons: "Flight arrived an hour later but the biggest issue was the limitation on food options. It seems selections of popular choices ran out fairly quickly."
Cons: "Good day. My wife and I were supposed to board on the above flight from Maputo to Johannesburg at 11:30am. For some odd reason the flight wad delayed and the plane only departef at 03:15pm. We had a connection flight from Johannesburg to Luanda (DT578 TAAG Angolan Airlines) wich we nearly missed. My luggage didn't arrive in Luanda. So far nothing wrong. Delays are normal. The major problem was the ground crew in Maputo who didn't provide proper information on time. Furthermore after landing in JHB no protection to late passengers in transit was provided. When disembarking I approached a lady at the bottom of the stairs and she didn't have our names on the list so we were on our own trying to find our way through the endless cue at the transfers counter. We made it but I'm sure Hussein Bolt would have lost a race against us. Shame SAA!!! This was the last airline in Africa I would expect a such unprofessional treatment. My ETKT number is 1187098323350. My name is Fernando Macedo and my wife's is Elsa Amaral. My cell number is +258843125748. Sincerely Fernando Macedo"
Check in and passport and security time’s appalling Not enough staff for the volume of flights departing.
The crew were great as usual. The flight was rescheduled two hours later but delayed by more than an hours to load cargo. The was upsetting because I missed scheduled meetings in Johannesburg.
Though the food was very good ,I think the portions were too big. It was hard to manage everything on that small table. And you really don't feel like eating too much on a long flight. Just a suggestion and it would save you some money too.
Cons: "Apart from beverages with the meal, there was no other offer for any beverage. This is a 4 hour flight. Really uncomfortable"
Pros: "Food was good, entertainment system was good."
Cons: "Crew told me to wait while they eat their meal (on a 4.5 hour flight?) headphones get cleared 20min before landing but all the rubbish gets left on your tray table. delayed departure because the plane was being cleaned, i think if they cleared the rubbish in flight then perhaps it wouldn't be so dirty. Also no information provided as to why the boarding was 30min delayed (COMMUNICATION!)"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment could be much better. Not much choice of films, particularly latest ones. Headsets very uncomfortable and sound quality poor."
Cons: "General lack of concern for passengers. The kids in the seats next to me had screens that weren’t working and they wouldn’t even try to fix them. despite the fact that the water was there, when I declined the meal but asked for something to drink they refused until later."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed all throughout. Plane was old and uncomfortable compared to other Air Mauritius planes I’ve used. Food really bad I did Not enjoy this flight whatsoever Missed my onward connections"
Pros: "It landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed 3hrs with no information just apologies. Toilets onboard not clean and leaking. Several trays broken. Coffe/Tea served by pouring over customers rather than tray with cup. Safety information only shown when landing. Staff bumped isle passengers several times (me 4 times) with no apology. Chaos in serving dinner as special meals and vegetarian meals sent to wrong seats."
Pros: "I sat onseat 8c on this old Airbus 319 and my knees were killing me so little legroom. Im only 1.78m"
Cons: "Take out one row and give cattle class a little bit mor space please. I already have deep vein trombosis from flying."
