It was a great experience , it was quick and on time

this route is more expensive than you would expect. Boarding, disembarking was easy and fast. Cabin crew was friendly. Seats are small

The meal was excellent and well suited to a short journey.

Original flight was delayed due to technical issue. Very poor communication. The manager only appeared when we were climbing on board the plane.This resulted in us missing our follow on flight also with Airlink. No ticket issued from Skukuza and no assistance when we landed to address the issue. We had to make our own arrangements and go to their sales desk. Again they had no knowledge of the flight delay and of any passengers that had connecting flights. The lady (unfortunately with all the STRESS I have forgotten her name) at the counter was extremely helpful and is an excellent example of the type of employee Airlink need to promote and employ. Our luggage was in limbo due to all the missing information and assistance. We had to resort to buying extra tickets from South African Airways who were extremely helpful. I work at an airport so am familiar with its workings. I will infuture be looking for alternative flights.

Airline is the best airline experience I’ve ever had.

My flight was good no comments Crew members were good Flight on schedule even earlier at some point Thanks

Easy boarding, smooth flight, friendly and helpful attendants. As with every other airline, there isn't enough leg room to be comfortable. Food was adequate.

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.

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

There was no entertainment, but that is not expected on a flight less than 2 1/2 hours. Uber clean aircraft, good boxed meal and friendly flight attendants. Very please with the experience

Very good experience considering that is low cost company. Good value for money.

Make some provisions for non-disabled elderly people who don't require assistance necessarily but would appreciate not having to walks long distances or stand for prolonged periods of time. For example: Seats close to boarding gates. Not being required to climb down and up stairs to board and deplane if in rows 17 upwards. Not being required to stand in long queues in boarding tunnels waiting to board. Priority fast track through security points to avoid long queues in departure halls.

Great airline. Will use again. Keep up the great work though and maintain your customer retention. And please keep an eye on the bottom line and stay in business for decades to come and grow from strength to strength.

For the first time ever we had a grumpy check in agent. I got told off for not having a lock on my bag and she looked seriously put out that we were checking in as a group of 7. Very unusual as I fly regularly with Safair and all the staff have always been super friendly.

Free or minimal cost water available in recyclable cups on board would be very welcome! Everything else was great!

Seats are small. But I guess that will not change on my behalf. Otherwise their service is great.

Loved our Cabin Crew you could tell they enjoyed there job. The Chief Stuart was a delight. What a great way to start our day with such a positive company.

Pros: "crew insisting everyone covers mouth and nose with the mask"
Cons: "surprised to see no separation between people,"
Pros: "Seat could be wider or a business class option would be welcome"

Plettenberg Bay is a unique airport, so boarding with always have certain quirks. Cemair has zero regard for passengers, and their commitment to adhering to departure times. In two flights we had 3 flight changes, and a 1.5h delay. If you have any kind preceding or follow on plans, do not fly Cemair.

For now everything is good we want access to book direct to camair

send ourt booking confirmation numbers as soon as payment is done to simplify checkin

No A/C on the plane - and it was hot. Unmarked aircraft - looked sketchy.

Flight delayed with no explanation was only made aware lats min when already arrived at the air port

Efficient low cost operation.. Gets you from A to B, not much else.

They find a way to Nickel and dime you in all creative ways. The boarding crew seems to have target collection amount. If you are flying internationally, avoid them at all costs.

All of the trip was good and I have good experience with LAM company

Had excess weight and ended up being late going through security and customs, missed the bus to airplane. Got driven to airplane in a van when arrived at the plane driver got a phone call from security saying I had left my iphone at security we went back and retrieved the phone and managed to make back to the plane just in time to take off. Excellent Service Teamwork. ⭐️🌟✨💫🤩

The flight was delayed due to technical issues and operational

It’s appreciated to see better food offer and a variety of drinks. White wine with supper was appreciated. It doesn’t need to be chilled. Red wine will be good. Thanks

Those flights are always too hot. Better air and better circulation is needed. Thanks

Cons: "Made me wait at airport for long without any information. Sandwiches is so so bad. Hate their services"
