Airline reviews

Cons: "It’s a hop and a skip, just 2 1/2 hours. But. Nice flight"

Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Entertainment console only partially working. Toilet vacant/occupied indicator not working fully."

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "There was a female cabin crew (I can't recall her name but I guess she was the only female serving food) on Flight 209 from Accra to Washington on September 3, 2019 - her negative attitude absolutely disqualifies her to be a cabin crew on any flight. Besides that, the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "First time flying SA...generally, I enjoyed the flight just that all the cabin crews need to have intensive training on great customer service and professionalism."

Cons: "The food that they give you on the plane could have been better. The lunch they provided was terrible."

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."
Cons: "In addition, a male FA was so animated in conversation that his homophobic rant (not directly at anyone in particular) was particularly disturbing. Prior to check in, the heavily overweight female FA's brought on board absolutely humongous bags which they placed in the back luggage bins hogging at"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, helpful and hard working."
Cons: "Departure was delayed 2 hrs due to a leaking waterline. We stood on the ramp for 40 min waiting for the initial repair and after taxing to the runway, we turned back due to the repair not holding, going back to the bay for another repair which closed all 4 centre toilets."

Cons: "Helping the aged to access the entertainment gadgets"

Pros: "The plane was old and the seats were not very comfortable."

Cons: "my tv didn’t work and after emailing multiple times, they still didn’t accommodate my vegan meal so I could barely eat."

Pros: "The last leg of our trip was very comfortable, modern seats, pleasant service, and great food."

Pros: "- service - the flexibility with seats"
Cons: "- no outlets for e-devices - food is terrible; no good options for vegans - the arm rest do not go all the way back - entertainment system needs upgrading"

Cons: "Very long lines for check-in and confused staff"

Pros: "Cabin crew was great and the landing was sublime!"
Cons: "The food could have been better."

Pros: "Relatively quick boarding."
Cons: "The crew didn’t ask a loud group to be considerate of other passengers, even when we asked twice. The movie selections were small and not good and overall the tv was limited for such a long flight."

Pros: "direct flight"

Pros: "Great spaced setting and the toilet clean and spacious"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Liked the flight crew"
Cons: "Hated the meal, hated not having power, hated the uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Webjet, after 3 failed booking attempts Webjets booking resulted in them booking me as “Josh” vs “Joshua” and South African Airlines wouldn’t allow me to check in. After webjet refused to fix the issue claiming it would take a week to fix, South African airlines forced me to pay $2,700 to repurchase the same ticket in order to board the flight."

Cons: "POOR SERVICE AT THE AIRPORT IN JBH."

Pros: "The vibe was happy and welcoming and the cabin was clean. Overall it was a well managed flight and friendly staff throughout the plane. Enjoyable and relaxing"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Everything was standard, nothing stood out."
Cons: "Didn’t have outlets for a 15+ flight. We were also delayed for an hour and a half, which impacted our next flight. Really, they should have a defense for that so we’re not all running around like chickens"

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: "Comfortable flight with a spare seat so could stretch out"
Cons: "Problem with tv screen Late arrival due to 2 hour drlay"

Pros: "Overall good as expected. The onboard crew were unfailingly charming and helpful."
Cons: "At O. R. Tambo airport in JNB the boarding/security process at the gate was chaotic, with massed passengers held on line on the boarding jetways and stairs for over an hour and no explanation given."

Pros: "Service of some of the ground staff was excellent. One lyoung lady in particular was alert snd goid at keeping the check in line moving.Check in was smooth and easy."
Cons: "The person checking us in was efficient but his manner was not welcoming and he did not smile. The cabin crew member assigned to our section was not very attentive. However in all my previous trip a that were great so I am going to withhold judgement. Seats were you narrow."

Pros: "The rest of the flight was good."

Pros: "The crew was great."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Uncobfortable seat, unprofessional crew"

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"

Pros: "Despite 20 min delay, kept us informed. The rest of the flight was perfectly executed."
Cons: "The 20 min delay."

Cons: "lost luggage"

Cons: "Plane was not very clean."

Pros: "Crew members were great! Food was top and great wine list to accompany that."
Cons: "Very limited choice on series as well as the movies are outdated. Also the size of the toilets it is a little cubicle where people can barely wash themselves properly in such a long flight. For such a long leg the seats should be more comfortable at the Business class"

Pros: "The provide a snack and drinks on a two hour flight--that's worth something."
Cons: "I wouldn't bother with a sandwich for everyone--especially during non meal times. Why not offer chips or something lighter rather than wasting all the sandwiches people half eat."

Pros: "I had an upgrade on one of the trips (Bogota- Sao Paulo) Avianca service was good"
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"

Pros: "I liked the fact that this flight was short. I slept for the almost 2 hours."
Cons: "They could keep the food they serve on this short flight. I would do better with a bag of pretzels than the sorry sandwich they offered."

Pros: "Nothing at all beside less hours. Everything horrible"
Cons: "They changed the gate 45mins before my flight. There was no announcement or anything even thou they lied they said they did. They told me i have to pay over 600+ dollars to get on the next flight even thou i had my boarding pass for the flight i missed. No customer service or No supervisor at night."
