Top tips for finding a cheap flight from Seattle to Johannesburg

  • When flying from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), ensure you arrive at the airport at least 3h before your flight is set to depart. This should give you enough time to go through the security lines at the airport without the risk of missing your flight.
  • When booking connecting flights, go for the ones with the automatic transfer option. This is because the alternative, self-transfer, will require you to check into every individual flight.
  • To make your trip more sustainable, consider taking public transport to and from the respective airports. This reduces the number of cars on the road hence reducing carbon emissions. You should also try and pack light luggage and avoid single-use plastic during your trip.
  • If you want to get a rental car at Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport (JNB), there are plenty of rental companies that have set up shop at JNB Airport including Avis, Budget, and Thrifty Car rentals. They are all located in the northern region of the airport next to the long-term car park.

I was called up at the gate not knowing why and then handed over my passport and was told I was being upgraded from Premier economy to Business class and it was wonderful. I've never been upgraded before and it was such a pleasant experience.

I was called up at the gate not knowing why and then handed over my passport and was told I was being upgraded from Premier economy to Business class and it was wonderful. I've never been upgraded before and it was such a pleasant experience.

Great service and air hostesses, took care of all activities very well and smooth

I was unable to input the API information in online. I phoned and a member of staff input it for me, however when I went to check in online was told that I had not entered the API needed. It took 7 seperate calls to get all the information added. I added bags separately to booking the flights. When I went to check bags in at the airport and print the lable the machine kept telling me I didn't have bags, despite the online information telling me that I had. A helpful member of staff at Gatwick sorted and printed the lables.

I was rebooked on Delta. Did not take this flight

Good. The flight was extremely delayed but they rebooked my layover (which took off before we even landed) before we arrived. Second flight made me check my bag but there was plenty of room. Otherwise good experience

Horrible experience! We sat in the plane at the gAte and had a delay of about 4 hours! Captain said it was due to the tug not being able to disengage from the aircraft . When we finally took off it was evident that we had missed out connection and tbough BA rebooked us on a later flight it caused us to miss an orientation meeting and dinner in Geneva. Once in the second flt from gatwick to Geneva we again were delayed( again sitting in the plane )for an hour after boarding waiting for apparently an air traffic problem to resolve. Another annoyance was paying seat fees twice to upgrade our seats towards the front of the plane to ensure overhead cabin space and were told at the gate they are boarding from the rear! This should be stated when making reservations!! On the first flight from Jfk there was a sick person on board snd they asked for assistance. For the rest I of the flight a person kAyed on the glue if the planes covered in blankets . Very unsettling to say the least!I have several flights booked with BA and I’m seriously rethinking this. Kathleen Ditta

Boarding ,checking in was easy and quick . Comfort was not good.

It was the most uncomfortable flight I have ever had , it was a nightmare ,the seats were narrow and I was very cramped, the food was awful, there was over weight person seating next to me or should I say seating on my lap.Most of her was overflowing onto my seat .For 6 hours I endured this gulag like conditions. I will never ever book any flight with British Airlines

Innovative boarding process using face recognition was flawless. Excellent food. Great lounge!

It was good… always SO many people… I realize that’s how they make money but wow!
