Hmm, I'm going to have to offer a different opinion. I've found SAA Economy Class domestic and medium-haul flights (i.e. on 737-800s) "OK" but not exceptional. But my only two long-haul flights (from JNB to Perth and back on 747SPs in Economy) were poor. The cabin staff were surly, lazy and rude, the food indifferent and the planes old and rickety. OK, they have new planes on the route now but I wouldn't look forward again to flying with those flight attendants.

While not wanting to put a play down the experiences of others, it should be noted that the crews on the JNB-PER sector have about 24 hours rest, after a long overnight flight and 5 hour time change. No wonder the service you received was awful.
