The Purple shall rule! "I was very impressed with my 1ST time on Velvet Sky. There was a delay going to CT in December but was soon rectified, what the heck its holiday it''s busy and nothing in life is perfect except for certain passengers thinking they were perfect starting to shout and swear at the boarding gate. I thought they were gonna start to toy-toy. Very barbaric, BUT YOUR STAFF KEPT THEIR COOL!!!.Coming back on 6th Jan 2012 I had the smoothest take-off and landing ever (rainy /night flight). What a beautiful plaine! 110% to the pilots. The staff was friendly effecient and of all races. Well done Velvet, I got the best prices, keep to those R449 prices for CT and take the market." Marius.

The Bottom Line: "Our country's businesses will continue to efficiently deliver goods and services wanted by our citizens. Metaphorically, these commercial "cows" will live for centuries and give ever greater quantities of "milk" to boot. Their value will be determined not by the medium of exchange but rather by their capacity to deliver milk." Warren Buffett
