So good not to support the national carrier who has squandered my taxpayer's money. Phone friendly and in flight great. Beats the attitude on the national carrier which should be closed down. Priority boarding great but priority baggage collection would be a real enhancement!

I always use this flight when I travel, air hostesses are friendly and helpful. However I'm not happy that I cannot check in online because I'm traveling with a child,it's very inconvenient to go stand in a queue while you can do everything online.

What a pleasant surprise. Friendly staff. From the moment you enter the airport until the moment you landed in Johannesburg you were treated with respect and friendly staff. The flight was on time - no delays or hassles.

Their website is brilliant. Uncomplicated and quick. I like the fact that I can choose the services I want when booking online. Their turn around is well orchestrated and their punctuality is unmatched in domestic market. Their 737 cabins are clean and crew friendly and attentive. On board announcement recordings are in a voice that is audible and clear.

I fly domestic legs for work regularily. I now ensure that my fly times coincide with Safair schedules as they have proven to be the most reliable and friendly airline in South Africa. Even when travelling with extra luggage for business demonstrations, the staff are always willing to assist and make a plan without charging me for another ticket. Unlike...
