Interior of the South African Airways A340-600 (with zee Germans!)
Note that there is no underseat storage allowed for seats C and H in ANY row
Beautiful views of the coastline
Free snacks served on the 2-hour flight: beef jerky and vanilla cream cookies
Can’t turn down free, local-country wine in economy class!
Horribly-shaky photo from the back of the A340-600. If you are on a long-haul flight and need a lot of legroom, you might want to investigate this seat with a missing seat in front of it!
JT’s “crewfie” with the flight attendants he befriended
Everyone – seemingly including the pilots – must deplane onto the tarmac to be bused to the terminal
Once we got to the terminal, we followed the crowd to the transfers section of the terminal, rather than going to collect our bags at baggage claim. So, we had to exit and work our way back to the baggage claim area. The security guard protecting the exit of baggage claim made sure to thoroughly check our tickets and baggage claim tags to let us back into the baggage claim area.
