The Purple shall rule! "Why are there never any flight specials for the Durban / PE route. Why don't Mango and 1time fly that route?
BA and SAA never have any specials and Kulula seldom has flight specials now. Up to 2010 Kulula had brilliant specials R299 etc. Now , you're lucky if u get a R650 flight. Mango and 1time fly Durban /Cape Town , why not go via PE?" Debbi (if anybody feels the same way, please join the petition for Mango to fly to Port Elizabeth)
