My bag is completely damaged, I wish they could handle our bags with care .I m so heartbroken .

Pros: "crew insisting everyone covers mouth and nose with the mask"
Cons: "surprised to see no separation between people,"
Pros: "Excellent COVID protocol"
Cons: "More worried about profit than covid"
Pros: "Value for money."
Cons: "Boarding was interminable. Standing around waiting in the jetway"
Pros: "Seat could be wider or a business class option would be welcome"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Improve leg room"
Cons: "service and punctuality all good"
Cons: "FlySafair forced me to pay for my second bag - even though my ticket was clearly marked "2 bags" all the way to Cape Town. Totally disgusted with this airline, not honoring the ticket. And they way they treated me about it makes me never want to fly with them again. Warning: Seats don't recline!!!"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "No entertainment, but then you are a budget airline"
Pros: "Timely service is their main priority. Excellent"
Pros: "Professional staff from airport right through to the aircraft staff. Great service with a smile!"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The planes seem fresh and new. The staff were efficient and professional. Although a budget airline, we thought they offered value for money."
Cons: "Can't think of anything. Although expectations weren't high, they surpassed them."
Pros: "It's alright, safe flight and pilot good landing skills. I particularly liked their crew's sense of humour."
Cons: "If only we were served drinks, but that's asking too much."
Pros: "Take off and landing was smooth"
Cons: "I was in the row next to the toilets which meant a constant stream of people using the toilet and queuing outside of it that makes sleeping impossible. The noise of the toilet flushing every two minutes is disturbing and the smell from the toilet really is rather unpleasant. Having paid for economy plus I expect a reasonable comfortable seat. Which is the point of paying the premium, otherwise I’d have just bought an economy seat. It’s poor design that creates an unpleasant experience for your customers."
Cons: "Delay in collecting baggage. Probably due to different parking bay further away"
Cons: "Baggage control very bad. Waited an hour for the carousel to deliver the bag"
Cons: "Proper communication and oversight of the boarding process. Tell us to stand in 2 queues a third one develops and we need to sort out unhappiness. Almost like the taxis! And as usual departed late"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Reasonable amount of leg room"
Cons: "Good value for money"
Pros: "Easy to check in - yummy sandwich and friendly crew"
Cons: "Comfort - paid food by card only available"
Cons: "When buying my ticket departure time was 19h25. When getting to the airport departure time on display was 19h35. No indication of delay. So why the difference in times?"
Pros: "Excellent assistance"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No window at seat row 11, no warning about this at check-in"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because Kiwi did not pay the airline. It cost me tons of extra money, and seriously delayed my trip!"
Pros: "The airport staff went to great length to try and assist me but couldn't due to things not in their control."
Cons: "Checking in was a huge hassle as they checked by bags in all the way to Dublin but could only give me a boarding pass for one flight."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, excellent feedback from pilots regarding route, changes in altitude etc We had to drop a couple of 1000m to avoid bad turbulence. We were kept in the loop reg what was going on"
Cons: "Budget travel - so no food, entertainment or the like"
Cons: "Flight was 1h 20 min late and everyone in the George area immediately commented that this was entirely normal. Thank goodness I did not have urgent meetings to go to as I would have had to reschedule or miss them altogether."
Pros: "Hospitality"
Cons: "All is awesome"
Pros: "Cost and quickness."
Cons: "Tiny cramped plane."
Pros: "Cost, speed of boarding and un-boarding."
Cons: "No baggage on arrival and no warning from the pilot who would of known since no one on the flight got their luggage because they were never loaded."
Pros: "The frenlynes"
Pros: "Attendants are professional in their approach. Flight is typically not on time at arrival (origin) but the Kulula teams are usually able to turn the plane around and be flying back in time to meet their take off times."
Pros: "Hot meal a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "One hour delay. One piece of baggage lost, which arrived the next day."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Crying babies"
Pros: "The staff were fantastic, as usual."
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "No complementary food"
Pros: "Color green is nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed multiple times. Nothing complemtry even with long delays. Forced to pay for water. Online extra bag purchase was not working. After calling in, their system was also down. Forced me to pay extra price at the airport."
Pros: "The way to do any flight is to close your eyes and dream of better days. I did just that. I was left alone. That’s all I need."
Cons: "Kulula flights have a tendency to run late as the day goes on. And being barked at by ground staff whilst waiting to board is getting too common with Kulula. There’s a way to do things professionally so we don’t feel like we’re cattle being crammed into a pen. The boarding process was cumbersome. Waiting 15 min on an air bridge is not the norm."
Pros: "Boarded on time and for a very full flight without a hitch"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Boarding/unloading was efficient with both front and rear doors being used, though had to use stairs."
Cons: "I couldn't get miles on my American Airlines program, even though they're a partner airline."
Pros: "Once the boarding started, it was efficient, and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, and there was a lack of timeous communication around these delays making the process rather inconvenient. The airconditioner aboard wasn't working which made the environment extremely unpleasant."
Pros: "They can actually be on time. The best way of winning me over. Do as you say."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "Being delayed by 5 hours with a baby is not my idea of fun..."
Cons: "Always delayed. Again 2 hours. No communication from Kulula"
Cons: "Pathetic. 2 hour delay"
Pros: "Made a plan to have a BA plane ready iso of us having to be delayed. Well done"
Cons: "Why not have the ladders ready when we arrive from Cape Town?"
Cons: "Late as usual albeit due to weather conditions!"
Pros: "Drink Service and lunch"
Cons: "No air!"
Cons: "It was pathetic. Our flight was delayed and we had a connecting flight in Jhb. We were promised we will get priority disembarkment and there will be someone to escourt us through customs. We flight was supposed to land at 6 30 and we had to have boarded our next flight by 7:05pm. To my horrow we landed in Jhb at 7 10. Only got off the plane at 7:15 because the stairs took forever to come. There was no priority disembarkment and there was nobody waiting to escort us through customs and passport control. It was a complete nightmare having to jump queues and running to catch the next flight. Will never fly kulula again ."
Cons: "Flight was extremely late. Food was pretty mediocre."
Cons: "Delayed as usual. 1 week. 3 flights. 3 delayed!"
Cons: "knew 24 hours in advance and still no resolve"
Pros: "Boarding and disembarking the plane using both front and rear doors was fast and efficient. Luggage was retrieved quickly."
Pros: "excellent service"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Short and sweet"
Cons: "Too short of a flight."
Pros: "With a little tail wind, this flight can be as short as 1.5 hours! Crew was positive and quick with great service. Baggage collected within 20 minutes of landing."
Pros: "On time. At long last"
Pros: "Flight itself was not bad"
Cons: "The lead up was poor. Lies were told about delays. Should have departed at 14h35 and eventually only left at 17h24. Due to technical issues and not systems as originally stated. Really!"
Pros: "E very thing, the Super friendly cabin crew,the outstanding friendliness of our wheel chair attendants, the friendly reception at check-in"
Cons: "Zero,"
Cons: "Shuttle to plane stood stationary for 15mins."
Cons: "I checked in for a flight and chose my seat, which was no issue until i got to the gate. I was summarily moved 11 rows back without any explanation. normally not an issue, but when i had 1c and wanted needed to get out quickly, you can see the issue. neither the ground staff nor crew were interested in the issues and gave no reason for the move"
Cons: "Very sticky, hot inside. Why are SAA passengers flying on Kulula? Baggage collection at carousel was for a SAA flight and a Kulula flight."
Cons: "we did not take this flight due to massive wildfires in Port Elizabeth and the surrounding areas (with 5+ people dead)"

Considering I cancelled the flight 2 months ago -- I would have to say the communication was poor -- since I continue to received updates. I say poor since Kayak seems not to want to respond to me to reschedule a flight -- they hold my voucher -- so I can not do it on my own --

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Pros: "Friendly staff, easy check in. Professional and courteous on board."
Cons: "Food could be better of course and the price could be better,"
Cons: "Pre boarding at the gate was slightly chaotic"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "Flight from heathrow to Manchester stopped it being excellent alll round as flight delayed over an hour"
Pros: "Good service and crew."
Cons: "Seats were very very narrow."
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "It was easy to get on and off. The crew were well drilled in the art of moving people on"
Cons: "BA like others charge a premium for using them over easyJet and the like. I take offence to paying £350 for a ticket and hen having to buy a sandwich. If you want to be like low cost airlines, then have the same pricing structure. BA = Rip off."
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "Knees pressed up against the chair in front. Being tall means an uncomfortable ride. I was not paying £29 for an emergency seat."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "Service and entertaiment"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours and a few people missed connections."
Cons: "i was asked to pay to check in my luggage :("
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Pros: "The Heathrow terminal, Amazing. Why does everyone in window seats keep all the window shades closed -- throughout the entire flight? It was daylight and beautiful outside. Are they all vampires? Why did my overhead light shine on the seat next to mine? Never mind... the flight was fine. Nothing to shout about, except for what I wrote in the next "What I didn't like" box...."
Cons: "I was assigned a window seat. I asked an agent if I could get an isle seat because I am a little claustrophobic. She said yes, and gave me 24D. Great, but I was annoyed and upset that she did not warn me that it was a front seat, with now place to put my personal bag. The wife of the guy next to me was 10 seats away, so I found an isle seat at the back of the aircraft and moved, so she could be with her husband. It all worked out okay, but the agent should have been more informative and have offered the option of that rear seat. It's not nice to be sneaky."
Pros: "Comfy, but small seats. Good food, nice crew"
Cons: "Small, old, buggy entertainment screen. Seats very narrow"
Cons: "Entertainment system is very old and the flight is also very old."
Pros: "The crew was outstanding."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very irresponsible staff and customer service. The flight got delayed due to technical reasons and the havoc after that is beyond explanation. Wish there was zero stars to rate"
Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Pros: "The flight was smooth with no turbulence. The pilot was excellent"
Cons: "Plane too crowded. There was a terrible smell in the luggage bin above my seat! The plane really needed a good cleaning !"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."
Cons: "Hard to love a flight when they lose your bag."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful with an issue I had with my second flight"
Cons: "No complementary snacks"
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the seats and the service I received onboard."
Cons: "I found out when I got to the airport that my flight was delayed for 3 hours. I never received an email regarding this information. That was extremely disappointing. This whole travel experience has really left a bad taste in my mouth about flying with this airline. Even my flight on the way back was a nightmare. The flight was closed early and I missed my flight and had to get on a later flight out of Heathrow. My connection was delayed and they changed the gate at the last minute so I had to run through the airport to make my flight to Dc. This has by far been the worst travel situation and it really put a damper on my trip."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was poor. Also breakfast was bland"
Cons: "Older plane, terrible tv compared to other airlines. Food was mediocre"
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Pros: "Short flight, but it was OK."
Pros: "The flight out of cairo to London was ok , but from London to Boston was quiet annoying being seated facing wall reverse side. For 7 hours"
Cons: "I had with my son 2 business class centered seats at last row no22 ,which were the reverse side of the regular flights facing the wall for 7 hours . The chairs were quiet uncomfortable & couldn't be classified as business class . If i knew this earlier I would have changed to another airline or at least sat economy facing the regular direction ."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hour. No drinks included"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"
Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and the crew was friendly and very helpful. The one flight was on time, but the other can be excused because of a technical fault on the plain. Safety is priority #1 so although a 3 hour delay was not nice, i'd rather be safe than sorry!"
Cons: "The food was absolutely appalling on both flights... We received a cheese snack. It was an old sesame seed bun ,with a very thin, small slice of cheese which you could hardly taste on it. With that they placed cucumber, that does not add to the taste of the dish, but only makes the bread soggy. There is also a piece of lettuce on that is past its crunchy freshness it is supposed to have. The last ingredient is sun-dried tomato that was the only ray of light for a poor effort of a snack by BA. I can truly say that during the past year BA's in flight food service on local flights, are on a downward spiral and almost in the dumps."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole trip."
