A list of our partners is here. This is our review of South African Airways business class on the new A service between London and Johannesburg. Even by our standards, early April was a little bit crazy travel-wise.
South African Airways was not my first choice for this trip to New York. Based on my previous experiences with them, I had explored other alternatives with a superior product Qatar, Emirates and several EU carriersbut SAA is the only airline serving JFK non stop out of Johannesburg and I could not afford traveling days vs the 15h direct flight.
Having flown to and back from New York with them last week, I regret my choice for the following reasons: OKish, uneventful check-in and boarding experience.
Even though I purchased an emergency exit seat on both legs 45D, 45F resp and had a very decent legroom, the experience was not pleasant as the seats were hard as a rock even with lumbar support and additional pillows and the aircraft clearly showed its age and it felt like its interior was falling apart.
Inflight Entertainment more than half of the passengers travelling on my row complained about technical issues with their IFE system. Some of them simply didn't work, others like mine worked but with lag and poor sound.
Not great when you have a 15h flight ahead of you. I did see a slight improvement vs. Don't think I would fly them again for such a long route again and will rather increase travel time by flying EU or Middle East carriers.Sep 18, · On our way home from South Africa, we flew Business Class (on points), and wanted to give you guys an inside look at what .
