What To Expect On SA JFK-JNB-CPT?

Wed Oct 15, 2003 12:09 am

I am very excited to be going to South Africa this month.
And I wanted to know what to expect as far a service and
IFE on board their 744. And their 738, JNB-CPT.  Smile

Any info would be appreciated.

Go to http://www.saa.co.za and click on "In-Flight Information" - that should give you all the infos you need... and have a great trip, South Africa (and SAA for that much) are really great!

I flew SAA back in January ATL-CPT-JNB-VFA-JNB-SID-ATL. They were awesome! Even the CPT-JNB leg on the 738 had a hot breakfast. The 732 to VFA was refurbished really nice and had a nice box lunch. And then the long flights on the 744, rivals the world's finest. You won't be disappointed.

On the JFK-JNB leg expect a marathon! I am curious as to how many movies they would show in coach. I suspect that flight is 16-18 hours, on DFW-KIX there was 5 movies shown in coach (I was in first Big grin) and that was 14 hours.
Go big or go home

They show how ever many movies you want to watch, they have Sony On Demand PTV's.

On the way down back in April I watched every movie and every TV show they had, on the way back I slept.

The flight from ATL to CPT is actually longer than the JFK-CPT flight by about an hour, so I had an extra hour of being bored to enjoy  Smile
