Pros: Fairly new nice aircraft with decent legroom

Cons: My flight was cancelled two hours before departure and I was notified by e-mail (that I only saw when I was at the airport). Next flight was 8 plus hours later. No rebooking to another airline. They suggested that they refund only the base fare (no extras/baggage etc) and then I can pay my own fare on the other airline. This is not an acceptable response as they could have reprotected their passengers to avoid us waiting at the airport for 8 hours.

Cons: very dirty. There were food particles all over our seats and the life vest had fallen out was sitting on the floor of the plane. Take off was rough, the worsts I'd ever experienced in my life. The plane was unstable on the runway and then unstable for the first 10 minutes. I started crying and my husband was sweating bullets. When things calmed down and I asked the stuardesses for a glass of water they said it would cost money - wow. By the way, they never went over the safety procedures at the beginning of the flight and the exit row seats were empty. All of this made me even more nervous. I will never fly fastjet again, no matter the savings.

Pros: There was a female cabin crew (I can't recall her name but I guess she was the only female serving food) on Flight 209 from Accra to Washington on September 3, 2019 - her negative attitude absolutely disqualifies her to be a cabin crew on any flight. Besides that, the seats were comfortable.

Cons: First time flying SA...generally, I enjoyed the flight just that all the cabin crews need to have intensive training on great customer service and professionalism.

Pros: 1. Friendly welcoming crew 2. Comfortable seats 3. Reasonable selection of entertainment 4. Clean amenities

Cons: 1. Although i requested Halal food in advance, when i booked my flight, non was provided. 2. I got to the boarding gate, 10 minutes before the plane was initially scheduled to take off. I was the second last person to board the aircraft because there was a long queue at Passport control with only one officer for a prolonged period. The man at the final boarding checkpoint, insisted that i was late because of shopping, and insisted on me catching a new flight the following day. He said that they had already filled up the plane with Stand By passengers, and my bags had already been off loaded. I had to beg him to allow me to board, and eventually he did. About 10 minutes after the scheduled departure time, the captain announced that they were waiting for one more guest, and the flight actually left about 20 minutes later then schedule anyway. This series of evens led me to believe that the man at the boarding gate was trying to elicit a bribe from me.

Pros: the crew was nice and friendly. the blanket was nice and big

Cons: the entertainment screen wasn't very responsive. it would be nice to have more snack options (like chocolate, ice cream, etc.) like other airlines do for such a long flight.

Pros: For one reason or another, my vegetarian meal wasn’t reserved ahead of time. The ground staff and then the crew on board were very helpful to ensure that I had a proper vegetarian meal nonetheless.

Mediocre 2,0

Cons: very dirty. There were food particles all over our seats and the life vest had fallen out was sitting on the floor of the plane. Take off was rough, the worsts I'd ever experienced in my life. The plane was unstable on the runway and then unstable for the first 10 minutes. I started crying and my husband was sweating bullets. When things calmed down and I asked the stuardesses for a glass of water they said it would cost money - wow. By the way, they never went over the safety procedures at the beginning of the flight and the exit row seats were empty. All of this made me even more nervous. I will never fly fastjet again, no matter the savings.

Mediocre 2,0

Pros: Fairly new nice aircraft with decent legroom

Cons: My flight was cancelled two hours before departure and I was notified by e-mail (that I only saw when I was at the airport). Next flight was 8 plus hours later. No rebooking to another airline. They suggested that they refund only the base fare (no extras/baggage etc) and then I can pay my own fare on the other airline. This is not an acceptable response as they could have reprotected their passengers to avoid us waiting at the airport for 8 hours.

Excellent 9,2

Pros: The crew was great, the food was fine; it was all very much as good as could be expected. It was a very positive experience relative to industry norms.

Cons: Boarding (and deplaning) is inherently tedious; I'm not sure what could be done to fix it. And sitting on planes for 17 - 19 hours is just brutal. This is not South African Airline's fault, it's a problem across the board, and i don't see this changing anytime soon. Also, the human air-travel carbon footprint is completely unsustainable, which is also not the (particular) fault of South African Airlines. In fact, it's my fault for participating...

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in ZAR.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
