This was my first flight with this airline and I was pleasantly surprised.
Check-in, punctual, flawless, with no problems, 5min (the plane was 60%) with the opportunity to upgrade for 300 USD.
The plane was an A320-200, very clean with a lot on legroom in economy class, comfortable leather seat. The flight to Jo’burg was 3h40min. long.
The quality of the service, crew and entertainment was really perfect. They showed a movie but it should also be said that there was a lack of in-flight information.
This might seem trivial, but for the meal, the plates were metal while on most African airlines these are plastic. It has to be said that it made a huge different.
I was agreeably surprised overall, and I would love to see what they are like on a longer distance flight or with other airplanes.
