In case you haven’t noticed previously, South African Airways (SAA) is the ideal means to travel into and across the African continent. The airline began in 1934, but has been rebranded in 1997. With support to 38 destinations in 6 of the seven continents, SAA is currently the biggest airline of South Africa.
Facts About SAA:
My SAA Story:
With SAA I traveled over 30 hours in June of 2012.
JFK New York–> OR Tambo Johannesburg –> Lilongwe International Malawi
Chileka International Airport Malawi –> OR Tambo Johannesburg–> JFK New York
Malawi is a nation is southern African American called’The Heart of Africa.’
Needless to say, a 15-hour flight may cause restlessness. But my experience with SAA was completely amazing, which is why I would love to discuss my experience. The chairs were large and comfortable, the film selection was amazing as was the music (new award-winning and releases films and music records.) I had been served 3 meals, snacks and offered complimentary beer and wine throughout my excursion (and I did not even fly business class!)
The staff made the flight as simple as possible by coming around to pick up trash, offer drinks or snacks and by keeping the lights turned off so that the passengers could find a much-needed rest. I was also given a pouch with toothpaste toothbrush, socks and eye mask, as well as a big, plushy pillow and blanket.
Traveling for so long was hard, but it’s the approach to Africa. Happily SAA made the amazing journey and easy as you can. Watch Amazing clips in my Visit
