I think our attendant was named Clemmie and I thought she was wonderful. She spoke so clearly over the intercom and was so happy and efficient. A thoroughly enjoyable flight.

The flight attendance really did their best to make us all happy and relaxed, even offered extra drinks and snacks after the normal lunch box. Plane however needs attention - Two prop Bombardier...!?

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
