Upon arrival to JNB, airport staff late to the remote gate ....we had to wait to de-plane.

The seating was too tight and not very comfortable for long flight especially for passengers with long legs.

This airlines does not cram people into the cabin like it was a cattle car. The seats in economy are spacious and recline more than most other airlines. The service is hospitable and all the meals are good and generous. A meal is served even on a flight of less than 2 hours. I wish I could fly South Africa Air all the time.

Wonderful. I got better service on this flight and better food than I did on Swiss Air in Business Class coming over to Botswana. Wish I could change flights and return on SAA
