Sorry I forgot to mention that SAA DOES NOT HAVE any VOD system on their LHR – CPT – LHR route. All their new planes are allocated to the Government controlled hub in Johannesburg. I flew reluctantly (using up all my Voyager miles) on SAA last week, and it was DISGUSTING! SAA uses an ancient A340-200 which still has the old TV monitor hanging from the first row, then in the middle of the cabin. There were 2 films on rotation every 2 hours. No music channels. No kids’ programmes. In fact, most of the kids on board (Easter) cried and made a nuisance of themselves because there was simply nothing to keep them entertained! DO NOT even bother with SAA.
