Staff will help when asked but not all friendly. In flight entertainment improved. SAA always on time and flight to NY is very good.

No where to charge phones in the flight

No Entertainment problem with system

Given the 15 hour duration of the flight, it was about as good as it could be.

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

The food was mediocre tasting and portions were small. I’d expected more on such a long flight. I suggest adding a mid-flight snack.
