13 May 2013. Our Kulula flight from Cape Town to Johannesburg was delayed for an hour due to thunderstorms around O.R. Tambo International Airport, but other than that everything went smoothly. I was surprised that the flight was so full, as it's not season or school holidays or anything - while it would have been nice to have a few rows to stretch out like a cat, it's also good to see full flights as it means that the airline is doing well. From Johannesburg I met up with my family and we flew with Lufthansa to Athens. Natasha
24 Sep 2011. Brilliant start to our Kulula Johannesburg - Cape Town flight, as the check-in queue was non-existent, and they offered to take our baby chair for us (this contrasts with Cape Town Airport, where you've got to drop off your fragile goods yourself). The couple just behind us in the queue weren't as lucky, getting nailed R300 for having one too many items to check in (study the Kulula baggage allowance before you fly to ensure the same doesn't happen to you).
I discovered something quite interesting, whilst enjoying a hearty meal at the Wimpy, and that is that the wireless data I purchased at City Lodge can also be used at O.R. Tambo International Airport :) On the other hand O.R. Tambo's powerless - I couldn't find a single powerpoint which worked at the airport (including the ones at the vodacom lounge).
We flew up to Johannesburg with South African Airways, but our flight back is with old faithful, Kulula. As is often the case we paid nothing for our flight (for 4 people!), instead using Kulula Moolah we'd built up with our Kulula credit card. It's really brilliant marketing by Kulula, as we felt compelled to fly with them, as our Kulula was expiring this month if we didn't use it!
We wanted to change our seats the night before our flight, but found out that this was not possible, as if you've got an infant you cant change seats. In fact Kulula are REALLY smart, as they place all the infants in rows next to each other. The kids love this, as they enjoy interacting with each other, and it also minimises the disturbance to those without children as the crying is isolated to one area. Those in the middle emergency rows of the plane do take strain, but it's difficult to feel too much sympathy, as they benefit so much from the extra legroom.
Somebody had dropped their guts in the toilet and this foul odour hit me as I entered . Since I didn't have a gas mask handy or sufficient time to wait for the odour to clear (24 hours), I retreated and headed for the relative cleanliness of the lavatories at the back of the plane.
Sadly our flight was delayed. Just after the pilot pulled out of the parking spot, he stopped for 20m, explaining that there was another aircraft which had jumped the queue.
Working in the travel industry, I'm always interested to see who's advertising in the in-flight magazines. In the Khuluma magazine it was Kulula Holidays (but of course), Champagne Sports Resort, Aquila Valentines Day special and Inverdoon Game Reserve.
