Re: Air Tanzania lazindua za Afrika Kusini

Great report from a region not often featured here, Leonard!

So, was your ride on the A220 compensation enough for missing out on the 787 on the inaugural DAR-JNB?

And please translate the title of your report for us...

Re: TK refund. Opt for cash or miles ??

Initially a travel voucher or free rebooking were offered to me. A refund was never mentioned. Meanwhile the voucher is no longer an option and travel can now be changed until December with flights completed until the end of January.

I'm not so sure about getting citizenship as quickly even if you were married, but at least you should be able to obtain legal residence as a spouse of a German citizen if you decide to move there.

Apples don't grow where I live. They are imported as exotic fruits and sold as green apples, red apples or Gala apples.
