FLIGHT REVIEW: South African Airways – Nelspruit to Johannesburg
Carrier: South African Airways (Codeshare with Airlink)
Flight Number: SA8828 – Departing 10:15am
Duration: 1 hours and 05 minutes
Class: Y- Economy
Configuration: 1-2 Economy class
Check in experience: Even with a group check we were overweight in luggage as the allowed limit is 20kg. This slowed the check-in process slightly. The airport is very small and there was limited people around so did not have to wait to check in. On time performance: The flight took off on time and arrived on time.
Seat/Cabin conditions: With only 29 seats all in economy class, this was by far the smallest plane I had travelled on. The seats were however standard to economy class which was unexpected. The flight was completely full, so made the plane feel extremely packed.
Service: There was only one airhost on board, but she easily attended to all passengers with a polite and friendly manner. A drink and small meal was also served on board shortly after take-off.
Entertainment: There was no on board entertainment systems as it was a short domestic flight. There was an inflight magazine to read.
