I always fly alone and have never had a problem. Flights are budget-friendly, staff are helpful and well mannered. The flights are on time and the biltong isn't bad.

Cattle Transport. VERY little legroom - inadequate overhead luggage space, impersonal service - we were treated like cattle: just objects to be transported
