Overall, I found my experience as a traveler on South African Airways to be pleasurable. There were movies to keep me entertained during the long flight. I was however seated in-between two rather large gentleman, one of which didn’t smell that great, so that was not a great experience.
The flight departed and arrived on-time. When we landed I didn’t even notice, the landing was so smooth. The air stewards were friendly and prompt. They weren’t stingy with the snacks and were willing to hand over an extra cookie.
My only real complaint was that the air was a bit cold on board. I guess that would be better than it being stuffy. I did have to cover my face with the blanket, but it was too thin to keep my face warm. I did bring aboard this carry-on (which i got off Gumtree) which was big enough to hold my fancy neck pillow, so at least I found some comfort. For any would-be travelers, Gumtree is a great place to get used luggage cheap as well – http://www.gumtree.co.za/fp-luggage?isSearchForm=truein reply to: South African Airways A340-300 Economy30 Oct 2013
