When booking a Velvet Sky flight from Cape Town to Durban, you'll notice some of the flights are 3 hours and others are 2 hours. The 3 hour flights involve a stop in Port Elizabeth.

BA are increasing their doubly-daily Johannesburg - London flights by 3 flights a week from March 2012, and are increasing their Cape Town - London flights to double daily from October 2012 for the summer season.

"The exchange rate in some countries, which can be artificially skewed in the host country’s favor, could tempt some travelers to engage in informal currency exchanges on the street or in established places of business that are unauthorized to exchange cash. Visitors who participate in such illegal practices put themselves at risk of deportation or incarceration. This practice exposes the traveler to the risk of receiving counterfeit money, which in turn puts the traveler at risk when he or she tries to use the money. It is not unheard of for business executives, having been apprehended exchanging money on the black market, to be blackmailed by foreign governments, who force them to commit industrial espionage on their companies." Stratfor

The Purple shall rule! "Velvet Sky, when will you be flying to Kimberley from Johannesburg and from Kimberley to Cape Town and Kimberly to Johannesburg. Looking forward to it happening soon. SAA is too expensive." Sandra

The Bottom Line: "Whether you achieve outstanding (investment) results will depend on the effort and intellect you apply to your investments, as well as on the amplitudes of stock-market folly that prevail during your investing career. The sillier the market's behaviour, the greater the opportunity for the business-like investor." Warren E. Buffett
