Recent Reviews for South African Airways

On time, good service.

May 22, 2018

The woman who checked us in was abrupt to the point of rudeness, but all the other staff were wonderful. Maybe she was having a bad day.

Overall happy with South African Airways. However, the attendants on board, albeit friendly are not very professional, specifically when compared to other airlines, a bit off-putting for a 15 hour flight. On board entertainment could be improved, several tele monitors did not work, mine included and had to move to different seats. A problem on both flights. Meals were delicious with snacks and refreshments available throughout

Food was very limited. Cheese Sandwich. But staff were friendly and it was good to see a couple of middle aged guys as the stewards.
