Pros: Seat was very comfortable, and food was amazing

Cons: Some of the fixtures were falling off, and the side controller for the TV screen was not connected or working. It is to be expected from an Older A 380, but not a deal breaker by any means

FRA
Okay 4,0

Pros: The crew was friendly, helpful and hard working.

Cons: Departure was delayed 2 hrs due to a leaking waterline. We stood on the ramp for 40 min waiting for the initial repair and after taxing to the runway, we turned back due to the repair not holding, going back to the bay for another repair which closed all 4 centre toilets.

HKG
Okay 5,6

Pros: The crew was useless. They spent the duration of the flight gossiping among themselves in the galley. In fact one was close to believing they were the Springboks because they spent the whole time in a rugby scrum in the back galley. One had to constantly ring for them to get their attention.

Cons: In addition, a male FA was so animated in conversation that his homophobic rant (not directly at anyone in particular) was particularly disturbing. Prior to check in, the heavily overweight female FA's brought on board absolutely humongous bags which they placed in the back luggage bins hogging at

Excellent 8,6

Pros: Good food. Professional crew. and overall good experience for a 15.5 hour flight.

Cons: Again, If you allow people to choose tickets online and they pick the front row, at least don't put them in the back row. That is the opposite of what they requested. After a.long flight and the limited recline, I am very sore in my back. Probably the most uncomfortable flight to date in my travels.

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.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
