Here is a quick 737 comparison on Africa's busiest route between a legacy and a LCC. I'm very stupid because I could have bought an extra luggage allowance on line at a discounted fare (zar 270) even though at the airport it was only zar 350.
Check in done in no time and hassle free SA security that allows pax to go airside with bottles of liquid over 100ml.
As the boarding gate was at ground level, we were bussed to a remote stand for a fairly loaded flight.
Crew welcomed us with smile and the cabin is the typical BA cabin on its former B734. It was clean, comfortable but old school.
The new kid on the block: FlySafair
UM A320 grounded here for a while now
Complimentary hot lunch got served quickly as soon as we reached the cruising altitude. Crew were proactive and open to chat.
Chicken, cereals bar and sweet, Appletizer only as I was driving after.
Descent and landing on time, exactly what was expected.
No wait at the reclaim belt which helped to pick up the rental car faster and drive down to Cape Agulhas which can be seen below on the bonus
