Pros: "For a flight of 1 1/2 hours, we were served a delicious hot lunch."
Pros: "The crew was useless. They spent the duration of the flight gossiping among themselves in the galley. In fact one was close to believing they were the Springboks because they spent the whole time in a rugby scrum in the back galley. One had to constantly ring for them to get their attention."

Pros: "The food and entertainment selection. Wine selection better on inbound flight than outbound from Accra."
Cons: "Disinterested affectwhilst serving; not offering drinks othe than the initial one. It is nice to be offered more. Coats from women not collected automatically as for the men.

Pros: "I liked the timeliness of the flights and the friendliness of the flight attendants."
Cons: "I did not like that there were no personal entertainment portals in each seat for the passengers."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was chaotic and very unorganized. After boarding business class and people with special needs, why can't they board from the back of the plane a few rows at a time? It would make more sense and there would be less pushing and shoving. A lot of people were rushing to get to the gate all at once!"
Pros: "The crew was nice, were so easy to talk to and they were so hospitable."
Cons: "But I do not have appetite of boarding it again due to the rudeness that I was shown by those who were at the terminal 5. I was coming from Washington State. I boarded a flight from Washington to San Fransisco then from there to New York but none of these charged me the carry on bag. When I reached at New York they said your laws (south african airways) does not allow a person to have carry on bag and laptop bag. At this time I had already extra lagguage which I paid $200 and they told me to pay another $200 dollars for carry on bag. They were so rude to me they told me to leave the bag if I do not have money. I was stranded. I tried to tell them that I boarded two flight which they did not charge me. They said the flights has different laws. But when I was going to New York i used the same flight with carry on lagguge and my laptop bag. So I paid $400. When I entered the flight I was shocked to find that almost everyone had a carryon bag. I felt that they did that to me because I was black and they wanted to find advantage on me. I was so stressful because I had no where to go. I used Delta flight when i was coming to new york but I have never experienced this charges. Now international flight experiencing this horrible situation. . True paying $400 because I had carry on bag?? Am still stressful they took a lot to me. They did not gave me receipt. I asked them to give me receipt all what they were answering me was like "just go." I have never been in a such situation. That is why I said I do not have appetite of boarding South African airways again. Is it true that your laws doesn't allow people to have carryon luggage? If it is true why some customers had the carry on luggage?? my carry was small it was not 23 pounds. Am still feeling pain for what they did to me. I know the name of the woman who was rude. If you treat passengers like that, there will be no good. The complain customer."

Pros: "It was short"
Cons: "SAA is an absolute disgrace. My wife and her father were bumped off a flight and given vouchers. But the vouchers can't be used online or over the phone, you HAVE to go to the airport to the ticket office to use them. They must be used on the same destination flight and you CANNOT buy a one way ticket. But the amount was only enough for one way. Absolute dog show of a company run by completely senseless idiots."

Cons: "Cold food."
Pros: "Food was alright, flight was quiet"

Cons: "South African airways airplane could be cleaner"
Pros: "The blanket and amenities in our seats"
Cons: "I had the beef for dinner, it was OK only, dessert coconut mouse was not good, the bread was very cold -not inviting. Have the chefs check on this. It was a 9 hrs flight and only one food service?? There is not enough offering of water, in mostly all other long haul flights I have been, bottled water is offered several times throughout the flight There is not a final collection of garbage at the end of the flight and we end up with carrying it out or leaving it inside the plane. In mostly all other long haul flights I have been, rubbish is collected at the end of flight Please implement these measures"
