SAA has great customer reviews since they have been provided with great service before and during the flight. Any sort of problem or situation is dealt with absolute professionalism.

Great Cuisine

Most of the people hate flights because of the cold tasteless food they have to gulp down somehow as there are no other choices. South African Airways cuisine is prepared by popular South African chefs like Chef Reuben Riffel and Chef Benny Masekwameng. You get different food choices in different classes which are first class, business class and economy class along with delicious wine to pair with them.

Always on-time

The South African Airways stands top on the list of South Africa’s most on-time airline service. In other words, you don’t have to worry if the flight will get delayed or if it will take off early if you are going to gear up your ride with SAA.

Inflight entertainment

For those who want to keep track of their journey there is are facilities like airshows which will let you know the altitude at which the plane is, how much distance has been covered and what is the estimated time of arrival.

Fly with your pets
