Want more info from Flight Deck

2014-01-26 Rating 5/5 : Travelled with my wife to visit our grandchild on Kulula 456 from Cape Town to Lanseria on Wednesday, 15th January. Flight left on time and arrived on time with no problems. Returned to Cape Town on flight 465 on Tuesday, 21st January. We had booked online so got the seats we wanted. Flight left a little early and was very smooth even though there was a bit of turbulence. Flight arrived about 10 minutes early. A pleasant experience on both flights but as an avid aviation enthusiast I would have liked to here a bit more information from the flight deck. John Hopkins

Booking through Discovery Vitality

2013-07-22 Rating 3.5/5 : My wife and I had to attend a friend`s wedding in Krugersdorp in May this year. Since we stay in the Overberg (Western Cape) we decided on flying instead of driving. The kids had to stay home because it wasn`t school holidays yet. The organizing itself was a huge task, let alone all the travel arrangements! We booked on via my Discovery Vitality and qualified for a 15% discount. Our flight was booked to Lanseria for 30/04/2013 from Cape Town (21H55) and our return flight from Lanseria (11H40) again to Cape Town on 06/05/2013. Once booked in at Cape Town Airport we first went to have a quick bite at the Spur, so we wouldn`t be tempted to buy the sarmies in flight. The flight went quite smooth, taking in consideration I weigh 120kg`s and am 1.85m tall – pretty small leg room if one doesn`t sit at the exits (we weren`t lucky enough to get exit seats, because for some bizarre reason one can`t book an exit seat online). Flight was on time with a smooth depart and descent at Lanseria again. On our flight back from Lanseria we were very early (happens when one has to depend on lifts from friends) and could ask for exit seats. We booked our luggage in at the counters and went off to eat breakfast at Wiesenhoffs. Lovely mixed meat meal I ordered, only to get a piece of spare rib that only had rib and nothing to spare to eat. Asked (and showed) the waiter, who called the "manager" – typical type that sends you off to hell with a smile. Apparently they "would bring it under our suppliers attention" – I suppose that`s why you eat spare ribs at Spur and NOT airport restaurants! Myself and my lovely wife had a descent nap on our way back to Cape Town, saying to each other the best part of Gauteng is the road back to Cape Town! All said and done, flying still beats driving by far, unless you make the driving part of your holiday and sleep over at a couple of small towns on your way to Pretoria. Tertius

Kulula/Mango price war

2011-06-02. Rating 4/ 5 : For a long time it was only Kulula flying from Lanseria Airport. Happily, since 1 June Mango are also flying the route. I say happily, as it seems like Mango and Kulula have entered into some kind of price war, and I bought my Cape Town to Lanseria ticket for R389 (to which I added a R20 donation to the Smile Foundation, but ultimately only paid R89 in total, thanks to Kulula Moolah I'd built up through spending on my Kulula credit card).

Parked near President's plane

The South African presidential plane was parked 2 adrift from us, and they were extra strict - couldn't even peak out of one of the boarding doors to take a photo. You can see the SA coat of arms on it on the tailfin behind the Comair British Airways plane.

Choosing seats online

I like the fact that Kulula say that "If your flight number has 3 digits, you can choose your own seat and check-in online 24 hours prior to departure", but I prefer Mango's system that you can choose seats online at the point of booking (on the downside Mango charges you for it). See full comparison of Mango v Kulula (and 1time, Velvet Sky). In the end I forgot to choose my seat online, and ended up choosing it when Ichecked in. I used the automated check-in machine at CPT (first time with Kulula) and luckily there were still a few window seats available near the back of the plane (there was a bit of a queue at the Kulula check-in).

Kulula and Mango Lanseria together

Looks like ACSA has arranged the Lanseria Airport flights together, with Mango's Cape Town - Lanseria flight left from gate A11, and Kulula's from gate A12.

Plane was fairly empty

The plane was fairly empty, which was nice for space, but circumstantial evidence that airlines in general are struggling to fill up is building up. The fact that Mango is now operating thrice-daily Lanseria - Cape Town flights wont have helped Kulula's cause. Over the last few weeks I've seen a lot of flight specials by 1time, Kulula, Mango and Velvet Sky. Our previous 2 reviews of Cape Town Johannesburg flights with Velvet Sky have also been in empty aircraft.


I tried the Avo and salad sandwich (R35), which was a bit bland for my tastebuds, but no doubt it's nutritious. Don't be surprised by the size of the drinks - 200ml grapetizer (R10), and 330ml sparkling water (R10). The potato sticks were R15.

Free newspaper at Lanseria Airport

It was lekker to get a free copy of the Business Day, Sowetan and The Times at the baggage collection area at Lanseria Airport. There's not much to do there while you wait for ACSA to deliver your luggage, so a good spot to leave free newspapers.

Photos from the flight

We can see Lion's head on the left and Signal Hill (popular spot for paragliding in Cape Town), Robben Island on the right. The suburb to the right is Tableview and at the bottom right is Du Noon. In the middle we can see the Caltex Oil Refinery.

I'm sure somebody will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think these are the Swartberg Mountains.

Competitor Airlines

Kulula Cape Town to Lanseria flights only face competition from Mango Airlines; but even though the route is a duopoly, competition has been fierce, and airfares from CPT to HLA are usually cheaper than from CPT to JNB.
