I checked in online on SA’s website on the eve of the flight, but there was no way of receiving the boarding pass on my cell phone (no 3G network in Victoria Falls). Checking in to the AF flight, which I took next, was also online on SA’s website and also they let you choose your seat (which is impossible on airfrance.com).
At the airport, check-in was quick and with no problems.
My luggage was checked all the way to CDG (some of the people who were traveling with me took the BA flight that was 45 minutes after mine and they were unable to check their luggage to CDG and had to pick up their bags in JNB just to check them again).
Boarding was just 5 minutes late. No priority boarding or separate boarding for business class clients.
Pleasant flight. Arrived on time.
The seat was comfortable, with enough legroom.
Service on board was good. No welcome cocktail, but they gave us an aperitif and the meal was plentiful and good.
The cabin crew was attentive and nice.
In short, it was a nice flight.
