South African Airlines is wonderful! Most gracious staff, lots of good food, awesome in-flight entertainment. I didn't not have extra room near me but both 17 hour flights were as good as could be!

Don’t like new configuration in business class. There are now 2 seats by window with NO privacy in between passengers.

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.
