    Hi Yonatan, thanks for sharing this retro-report from 2014. Capetown is such a beautiful city! Well, South Africa is a beautiful country in general! And the A346 is a beautiful bird...well, at least on the outside. The SAA cabins were pretty dated even in 2014...and I think these cabins are still around on some birds still in 2019.

    Thanks for sharing!
