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.

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

The check-in line was long and people were put in front of me in the line even after I said I had checked in online. It took me an hour to finally get my documents checked and drop my suitcase. It was horrible!

Pros: "Time keeping, plane was well sized and okay"
Cons: "Didn’t get a single sensible meal!"
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: "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: "Amazing crew, wonderful short flight and delicious snack. Could not be any better."
Cons: "Just continue the wonderful service."
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: "Flight was on time. Efficient crew"
Pros: "Airport check in went quickly and smoothly! Waiting lounge was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
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."
Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system works very poorly, it need to be upgraded! The quality of the image is very poor, the touchscreen does not respond easily and the stream is often interrupted by clips of ither movies or programs. This is unacceptable for a 14+ hours-long journey!"
Pros: "We were on a small cramped plane. The food was horrible."
Cons: "Rude employees at the counter in the airport."
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."
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: "Easy process to get to Joberg. Flight was on time and comfortable."
Cons: "Similar to some other reviewers we had to completely exit the terminal at JNB and then check in for our international flight sequence on Qatar, this was easy but caused a little anxiety, especially after learning that the total checked baggage for one person on the air link is 30kgs (66lbs) which is less than standard international weights. We had to pay extra for the “overweight” bags but the cost was reasonable. I would use the airline again."
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: "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."
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: "Seats wider (or seemed to be so) than most economy flights. Flight crew courteous."
Cons: "Have lived in Madagascar for almost two decades and have never seen such disorganized boarding. No signage, staff all the same uniforms (thus no visual clues), no gate noted on boarding pass. Very frustrating. Two Airlink flights were leaving at the same time due to a delay for one flight, so better communication needed. Plane toilet disgusting and would not flush."
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: "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"
Cons: "Lost baggage. Sent to Jouburg instead. Second day at Cape Grace in dirty safari clothes. Still no bags."
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: "It all went as expected. Today, that is excellent"
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."
Pros: "Pleasant experience. Gate personnel and crew were friendly and helpful; plane and seating were comfortable."
Cons: "No flight information signage at gate, and gate boarding public announcements were distorted. Besides being distorted, it was hard to understand the 'English' translated announcement."
Cons: "Delayed flight due to airplane malfunction and caused late arrival and could not make our connecting flight. Had to argue for support to stay in Johannesburg due to the inconvenience"
Pros: "Stewardess was very professional, spoke clearly, was very helpful. On time and affordable rates!"
Cons: "THe check in lady on the flight from Cape Town, was surly, rude, unhelpful, arrogant...just awful"
Pros: "Quick check in"
Cons: "Quants needs to upgrade they are falling behind in th bussness class game quiet badly This is my third trip in 4 years from Sydney to JHB and the service, seating etc is the same Tiered plans tiered overall"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "People were not the friendly except for the stewardess"
Cons: "It’s a hop and a skip, just 2 1/2 hours. But. Nice flight"
Pros: "The crew was good and friendly. The seat was good for a domestic business class"
Cons: "The food was not good. Chicken was very overcooked and the mashed potatoes tasted like they came from a box"
Cons: "Great short flight"
Pros: "Business Class on the Code Share, South African Air was superb"
Pros: "Was surprised with a meal and all beverages were free including alcohol."
Cons: "Entertainment limited to predetermined programming on screens every 5th row or so."
Cons: "I was not allowed to bring my carry-on luggage on to the plane. Even though I was permitted to carry it on the in-bound flight. When I surrendered my bag at the plane's door I was assured that it would be safe. Once I got to JFK and passed through customs, I retrieved my bag and the Laptop was gone!"
Cons: "Business class was a joke"
Cons: "Bumpy landing Delayed departure"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Lusaka only has one gate and this flight boarded simultaneously with an Ethiopian Airways 777 and Emirates 777. The staff responsible for boarding seemed more confused than the passengers. The food portions are very skimpy. The inflight entertainment consisted of some random video about F1 racing rebranding."
Pros: "The last leg of our trip was very comfortable, modern seats, pleasant service, and great food."
Pros: "Good food and punctuality"
Cons: "messy check in and security procedures. But this may be the fault of Lusaka airport"
Pros: "I cannot say enough about the service from South Africa! Always smiling, always helpful and saying it’s their pleasure when you say thank you. It is top notch!"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Cons: "Was delayed by and hour and given a bad seat even though I am a premier member"
Pros: "I like that I got an aisle seat this time, even though it was toward the rear of the plane. Because of my right knee, I requested an aisle seat on the flight from NY to Johannesburg, but somehow I didn't get one. I thought the crew was very accommodating and helpful"
Cons: "The delay because of problems with loading the baggage got us to JFK late. And that was just on the plane after we had to stand in the longest line before boarding. I also couldn't really enjoy the entertainment (e.g. movies or music) because the headset didn't fit well into the arm of the seat. I could only hear voices when I held the headset cord in one position, and it was difficulty keeping it in that position for an entire movie."
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Delayed departure No priority luggage handling (not in Iohannesburg and not in Cape Town). Luggage was marked “Priority” by carrier but it came out last off both legs. Not sure that works. Seated a super sized human in middle seat; this person could not even open the tray fully. Overflow several inches into my seat. Made for a very uncomfortable last 2 hours of a long journey."
Cons: "My entertainment center didn't work for the first 6 hours of the flight - along with virtually the entire plane. Then it worked but a lot of people's didn't, however it would skip 2-3 seconds every 5min or so."
Pros: "Liked the flight crew"
Cons: "Hated the meal, hated not having power, hated the uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Terrible experience with a kayak agent! I need my money back!"
Pros: "Friendly stewards"
Cons: "Food was not good, entertainment screens were not working for me and my daughter."
Pros: "The vibe was happy and welcoming and the cabin was clean. Overall it was a well managed flight and friendly staff throughout the plane. Enjoyable and relaxing"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Nothing really great stood out. Normal trip"
Cons: "They lost my bags. Also the staff failed to properly ticket us for a new flight and were told to just run to the gate. The gate person was confused and it just made the whole event stressful."
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "The ventilation in the departure hall is pathetic."
Pros: "Decent in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Aggressive stewardesses, so much attitude when I asked for water while they were sitting around in the back and chatting"
Pros: "They waited for the several people who were running behind because of the delayed flight."
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue that delayed us another 40 minutes that would've been nice if they'd checked for it while they were waiting for the late arrivals."
Pros: "Good space and legroom."
Cons: "Option to get more food would have been better since I just got off a long flight. Tray for food and laptop was broken."
Cons: "Continued to lose my luggage."
Pros: "Fast flight, meal was unexpected but nice. SAA is helping me find my lost bag from another flight which is great."
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable and the service attentive."
Cons: "Poor connection in JHB - Immigration at O R Tambo chaotic and took more than 95 minutes. Nearly missed this connecting flight to Cape Town. Literally ran from terminal A to B with my on board luggage over my shoulder. I had rechecked my main bag for the domestic flight but, nevertheless, it was left in JHB and had to be forwarded on a later plane. The folks meeting me in Cape Town had to wait an extra hour at the airport to collect it. Very unsatisfactory. As the national airline, SAA should pressure O R Tambo into improving their terrible immigration services."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight attendants. Extremely clean plane. Quick and smooth flight. Overall very pleasant"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "On time Courteous, profesional"
Cons: "Sliced chicken loaf, with rice salad"
Pros: "Didn't make it."
Pros: "- Responsive and friendly attendants - Clean aircraft"
Cons: "- Screaming baby - Not allowed to bring bottled water on flight - Lack of entertainment system"
Pros: "Good food, friendly crew, clean airplane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but no announcement was ever made about the delay or the gate change that occurred. Very confusing to have one person walking around telling a few people here and there what the flight status was. Should have been informing everyone at the same time."
Cons: "Ground staff was rude when we were going to miss our scheduled flight and needed to be rescheduled. Then because they refused to help me rebook, I had to pay a "no show" fee (even though I was standing right in front of them at the airport), as well as a rebooking fee."
Pros: "Hospitaliy"
Cons: "Toilets were clean"
Pros: "leather seats were nice, airplane was clean"
Cons: "if asked for something, it felt like the crew didn't want to be bothered"
Cons: "The food was bad period. I didn't each much of it. The beef was particularly bad."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The meal was very good and so was the complimentary Castle Lager. I really enjoyed conversing with my seat row mates from England!"
Cons: "The boarding gate check in was very slow and the boarding via a bus was also slow."
Cons: "Boarding was messed up with wrong information on the monitors, 2 lines formed. Service was not ok considering it was business class."
Pros: "Ran out of meal selections before they reached my row, so they started on our end for the next in-flight meal so we were certain to get our choice. Appreciated this accommodation."
Cons: "Passenger next to me was too large for her single seat, and I spent the 16hr flight squeezed between her and the window in half my seat"
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "There was a lady having fit and vomiting and really not well, the crew looked after her amazingly until touch down!!!"
Cons: "Older plane without a legitimate business class. Seat was broken so I had to change seats."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Boarding process was good. Crew was friendly and responsive."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. No electrical outlets or USB ports in standard seats."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and polite staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible and on repeat. Also, I was seated next to an obese man who spread into my seat. Such passengers should be seated next to no one. It was a terrible experience."
Pros: "The seats were way more comfortable than the first (and longer) leg of the trip. The staff was incredibly kind and attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't activated :/"
Cons: "This flight never happened and South African Airlines knew it was cancelled, yet we did not receive a notification. Instead, I lost a day of travel in Cape Town. I had to be re-routed through Johannesburg and then to Cape Town. Both flights were late and my luggage came in on the wrong plane. An absolutely nightmare of an experience."
Pros: "I was traveling a few weeks after having surgery on my knee. The airline staff, both in air and on the ground, were very kind and accommodating to make the trip as comfortable as possible for me."
Pros: "Plane had nicely redone interior decoration"
Cons: "Usually SAA has a veg option for food, but this time it was beef or chicken."
Pros: "Seats were much more comfortable - wider and at better angle than Etihad."
Cons: "Entertainment was lacking"

Food could be better and there was no entertainment on the 737 Max 800 for a 4.5 hour flight, surely this can be sorted

This flight the air was on, for a change, and we were comfortable. It was not full and the staff got us water, when needed. Bathroom cleanliness is an issue. Maybe more visual signs in the bathroom will help passengers who can’t read keep it clean? Also no toilet seat covers.

You are doing fine

Food

Cons: "Safe"
Cons: "The cabin attendants attitude need to be warmer and friendly. The food was not good."
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks during the flight (or water bottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as great as other airlines."
Cons: "Flight delays with no info from staff. Food poorly prepared. No orderly queues - there is aggression with no intervention from staff. There is no need for two security checks when making connections in Addis. Plane loos were all very stinky and dirty. I now remember why I had stopped using ET!"

Cons: "More entertainment options, the movies and TV shows offered are not varied or very good."
Pros: "Not much, actually."
Cons: "None of the air stewardess has a smile on their face when talking to or serving passengers. I’m not sure they know how to engage with passengers in a friendly way. My entertainment screen wasn’t working. After resetting, it took them an hour to inform me that I could move to another seat if I wanted to, as they couldn’t resolve the problem with the screen. The food lacked in flavour and the sausage served for breakfast was undercooked."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Cons: "Old flight - equipments were not in order like the handrest was broken, TV’s were broken and not functioning, touch screens failed to react to touch, signs on buttons at the handrest were smudged. 3 out of 6 washrooms in Economy class were not working. At one instance I was locked in the washroom as the door was not opening from inside, until I had to call the attendant. Entertainment options were limited. Food was below average. In one of my meals I got opened and melted butter. Cabin crew was not responding to the calls when I needed water. I finally got it after ringing 4 bells and 45 minutes. Overall, a terrible experience and would not choose to fly with Ethiopian again."
Pros: "Ease to select seats on line The flight was a little delayed but they got me to my connecting flight on time at Addis Ababa. Good on board service"

Cons: "Flight was delayed again. No priority boarding for Star Alliance members. Staff was unfriendly."
Pros: "The customer service from crew members"
Cons: "The snacks"
Pros: "It is an African airline so I am doing my best to support it. I am grateful I was allocated to a hotel for my long layover"

Cons: "Transfer at Addis Ababa was horrendous - no help from ground staff and the airport was a confusing mess. The landing in cape town was very rough and jumpy."
Pros: "Loved having traditional ethiopian food"
Cons: "One flight attendant condescending but she seemed to disappear after takeoff and the other ladies were excellent"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, very upset !"
Pros: "Plenty of meal service quick boarding process"

Cons: "Great service. Plane took off a few minutes late but nothing major."
Cons: "I had to purchase the upgrade to business class at the airport. On your site business class was not available."
Pros: "their business class was very good and a huge difference than economy, well done"
Cons: "the seat space is the smallest I have seen in economy. i took one sector economy and the other business. no blankets for guests"
Pros: "Great prices, and helpful staff"
Cons: "The food was mediocre, almost poor."
Pros: "1) On time"
Cons: "1) Food from Lusaka to Lilongwe was poor. Just sandwithes and drinks 2) Small bumpy, noisy plane from Lusaka to Lilongwe 3) No entertainment"
Pros: "Changing my flight at office in Lalibela, agent was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over one hour and NO explanation was given.. nothing, passengers kept approaching the gate, No one would give them an explanation as to why flight is delayed, when it was departing, nothing , we just sat and waited No communication at all"

Cons: "IF FARE IS CHEAP THAN THAT DOES NOT MEAN THE SERVICES SHOULD BE POOR"
Pros: "The comforts offered in business class was most standard. In other words quite good. The food was middling. Also, 12 plus hours on a plane requires a larger selection of films. Finally, add wi fi."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Comfortable. Crew excellent. On time. Efficient on boarding and landing - good information throughout"

Cons: "."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food was horrible. My TV didn't work and although I asked for it to be reset several times, the crew kept forgetting. The flight was supposed to be 9 hours, but we left late and it was 11+ hours. I understand things happen, but the crew gave no explanation for the delay or elongated flight. Last, but not least, when we landed in Newark we waited 2 hours for our luggage to come out. We landed at 9:50pm and didn't receive our baggage until 11:50pm. My friend and I were not even the last to get our bags. Overall this was the worst flight experience I've ever had."
Cons: "- terrible food and no snacks provided - Crew was inattentive and did not monitor passengers e.g. standing when seatbelt light is on - bathrooms were rarely cleaned on 18 hour flight - poor air circulation"
Cons: "My daughter's entertainment system crashed after 20 minutes. She ended up sleeping so I watched a movie. When she woke up, we were going to switch seats, but I tried to turn it back on and mine wasn't working. (By the end of the flight, only maybe 10-20% were using theirs as many others crashed as well.) The food was very boring. At one point I was looking for a flight attendant and couldn't find a single one anywhere in coach."
Pros: "I did like the overall services. I was comfortable with the crew and was entertained. I enjoyed the night over in the fhoice of loudging with nazra Hotel."
Cons: "I didn't like the quality of food in the hotel panaroma on my return. The hotel needed air refreshner as it wae stuffy and difficult to breath in. The reception was excellent but poor service."
Cons: "security boarding in adis abeba"

Our experience was terrible. Much of our itinerary was missing when we tried to reconfirm or when we arrived at the airport, even though the Kenya Airways App had us listed. By the time, it was sorted out, our flight from Livingstone to Nairobi was full. To meet our commitments (and get home), we had to find ground transport to Lusaka, purchase a one-way ticket for each of us to Nairobi, book an extra hotel night in both Lusaka and Nairobi, plus the cost of extra meals. For the 2 of us, we incurred over $1500 in extra expense. I filed a concern with the airline October 19, received a incident report number, but have not heard back as of November 2. It was a challenging and disappointing experience.

No rattling sounds during landing and take off so the Plane must have also been new. Kudos!!"
