1. Flights from the East Coast (IAD, JFK, ATL) have 1 stop going to JNB. Where is it? Is it a Tech stop only?
|Quoting KhenleyDIA (Reply 3):|
So, with the tech stop, what is the turn around time? We are on the ground an hour or so?
|Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 4):|
You are on the ground for about 1h-1h15m. Since passengers deboard/board at every stop, it is more than just putting in more fuel.
The Dakar stop gets the most local traffic. Local traffic to Sal is minimal, so the stop can often be quick. While SAA cannot carry ACC-IAD traffic, they do carry local traffic on JNB-ACC, so people do deboard the plane on the JNB-ACC-IAD flight and board on the IAD-ACC-JNB flight.

how about comfort on the 3 planes South African flies? Any thoughts? Experience?
|Quoting PA110 (Reply 6):|
JFK A343 - no complaints.
IAD B747 - no complaints
ATL A346 - many complaints - see below.

If you have the choice at all....744 upper deck, Y class, better legroom, better service, quieter....no other option really.
|Quoting Ibhayi (Reply 11):|
The uppder deck seat pitch on the 744 is 35 inches, on the 340 series it is being increased to 33 inches.
currently 31 inches and lower deck ont he 744 is 31 inches.
|Quoting KhenleyDIA (Reply 12):|
Thanks for the information! I was able to get myself on the upper deck for the way down and on the 346, I have a bulk head seat, so they TELL me there will be more leg room. Thanks again for the help and info!!
|Quoting SA7700 (Reply 13):|
Bulkhead seats on the A346, as far as I know, have very uncomfortable airbags in the seatbelts making it quite unpleasant.
