Deplaning suggestion: Inited could take a page from other countries airlines and ask that we remain seated until theorie in front of us deplanes. Easier on everyone that way

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.

Loved the customer service and the fact that everything was on time, the served refreshments are a cherry on top

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

Pros: "The crew was mazing and the seats are so comfortable."
Cons: "To me everything was excellent from the captain to the flight attendants i was impressed i have been to all domestic flights but Airlink is the best and after yesterday flight i decided that Airlink is the one for me onwards. The only thing i can suggest is the points program then the sky will be the limit for you. Keep up the good work guys BIG UP."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was great"
Cons: "good short flight"
Pros: "Time keeping, plane was well sized and okay"
Cons: "Didn’t get a single sensible meal!"
Pros: "Attendant was professional"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "For a short flight on a small aircraft nothing could have been better."
Pros: "It's a shorter flight so, no IFE. The front row of the business section was nice. I'm glad that reserving those seats worked out for this flight, although it didn't on all the other flights."
Cons: "No entertainment available, and the BUQ departure lounge could be improved"
Pros: "flight was on time food and drink"
Pros: "I was forced to give my carry on bag to be put in the hold. They said that it would not fit in the plane. When we got to our destination, i found that a large sum of money from my bag was stolen,"
Cons: "Security of our baggage should be better. And if you cannot fit the standard carry on bags, then please say so when people make their booking so that they can pack accordingly and do not bring carry on bags that they have to give up at the last minute. it is impossible to remove items last minute."
Pros: "Tayla the stewardess was very sweet!"
Cons: "Nothing. It’s a small plane!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Luggage was riffled through and item stolen"
Cons: "Delayed flight with close connecting flight and none of the flight or ground crew were able to communicate with the connecting flight gate agents. No priority for deplaning and tarmac shuttle was given to those with close connecting flight. Had to sprint through airport and barely made connection."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Seats were noticeably more spacious than comparable airlines. Good entertainment system and selection of films."
Cons: "Location of plug sockets, very difficult to use."
Cons: "The staff at Vic Falls airport tried to charge me several hundred dollars for extra bag fees. The fee kept changing depending on who I was speaking with and when I agreed to pay with my AMEX they said they did not take AMEX so they eventually waived the fee. This was only done after showing the manager a printed copy of my booking which listed that passengers are allowed 2 checked bags each. This was all done in the office of the South African Airways who I assume was managing the Airlink flight."
Cons: "Johannesburg Airport was terrible and every where we turned in the airport we got misinformation and people tried to scam us for tips including airport employees."
Pros: "It was good just the way it is."
Cons: "Why put cheese on the cross bun not good at all."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, and flight went smoothly. Loved the timing, giving me the whole day to explore the area and move on to the National Parks in the area. Breakfast at Uppington Airport is the best!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Airport check in went quickly and smoothly! Waiting lounge was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "Lazy agent said we were too late but bags not booked through on connection which helped cause delay"
Pros: "Pilot effectively communicated about the fueling delay and the imminent storm."
Cons: "Refueling issue : After boarding we had to sit on the aircraft to wait for the refueling driver to arrive and fuel the aircraft. This resulted in a delay of some 20 minutes. ssue"
Pros: "The crew was nice, overall a good flight."
Cons: "Had to pay extra baggage on a long layover, because we couldn’t check our bags all the way. My husband amd I had seats next to each other and then when we got to the gate, they had switched his seat... not ideal traveling with a 4 month old."
Cons: "We were very upset as we missed our flight to Maseru due to circumstances beyond our control. As a result we had to pay for another set of tickets and pay for s hotel room as no other fflights that day. We arrived to airport in plenty of time however there was a backup at immigration. We waited 10-15 minutes than an employee had everyone in line move to a different line. By the time he slowly walked us over our plane had already boarded. The bus was still there but we were not allowed on. Also, the representative said the boarding was delayed 3 minutes. Actually they boarded early. All along way we were assured there was no problem making flight."
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours. We barely made our connection flight in Johannesburg, which resulted in us having to run through the airport. We did not have time to get dinner."
Cons: "With over 1.5 hrs to check in, guards allowed others to cut in front and my son was told no problem, he would not miss his flight. He did miss his flight and couldn’t apply his ticket to another flight. Had to pay in full to buy another ticket for a flight 5.5 hrs later. Not good!!"
Pros: "Quick cool spacious"
Cons: "They left us in a hot hot bus for a long time at terminal and on the run way."
Pros: "The plane from Antanarivo as on time - quite an accomplishment for Madagascar!"
Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"
Pros: "the seats"
Cons: "Food was cold"
Pros: "Comfortable transfer to Skukuza from Johannesburg"
Cons: "The flight was not listed on the departure monitors in the hall where we arrived. We had a hard time finding the terminal and then the check-in counters and the departure gate. If the flight would have been listed it would have been easier, no asking around required."
Cons: "Staff not so friendly"
Pros: "seats were nice"
Cons: "food was cold. no entertainment for 3-4 hour flight"
Cons: "Spraying a very potent chemical in an already crowded small plane that send people home sick is not the best way to treat passengers. We do recognize there is probably a reason for doing it. Has the airline consider the impact on those with respiratory issue? Some passenger could not stop coughing until their final destination. Hope they find a better way."
Pros: "The flight attendant was really friendly and accommodating. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Can add a few more options for snacks. The chips and candy are pretty crappy."
Cons: "No priority boarding. 15 minutes waiting inside a cramped bus. First three rows in plane are curtailed off but seats are exactly the same as the rest of the plane. Beverage selection was poor and again same as in economy. The lunch was the only difference: a plate of chicken instead of a sandwich. SO WHAT DID I GET FOR PAYING BUSINESS? a curtain, a plate of chicken and exclusive access to the toilet at the head of the plane. Shame on SAA for selling this as a SAA business flight. Or Kayak for wrong advertisement. In the future I will definitely not pay for business as it is absolutely not worth it and will try to fly this portion with Air Botswana"
Pros: "Left inn time and arrived a bit early only 12 14 passengers in a 36 pAX plane..."
Cons: "Small Cramped seats No power plugs...average food"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I do not understand why the staff wait for all passengers to be on board and close the door to spray this unbreathable air spray. I was suffocating during a few minutes and coughed during the whole flight. My throat still hurts. The cheese sandwich was terrible."
Pros: "Efficient on time no hassle"
Pros: "Small plane but a very short flight, so its fine."
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "Cold food. SAA used to serve hot meals. What happened to that?"
Pros: "short, easy flight"
Pros: "Pilot and Stewardess were good and airport was nice. I appreciated the flights from Cape Town to Skukuza and from Skukuza to Johanesberg."
Cons: "Airport crew not able to answer questions outside of their scope of responsibility. I asked a question several times and reply was "good afternoon". finally another person helped and directed me to another part of the airport where I asked the same question and received blank faces until supervisor showed up."
Pros: "I enjoyed looking out the window as we flew. Interesting countryside compared to what we have where I live in the U.S."
Cons: "Maun airport is small but it gets the job done. The people at the SAA counter were not well versed with checking bags to your final destination when you continued on from Johannesburg."
Pros: "South African Airlines is like flying years ago when you were given respect and special treatment. It's my favorite airline, by far. Actually, it's the only airline I like to fly. I've flown Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and United to South Africa - big mistake. SAA is what I wish all other airlines are. They are first rate."
