Flight Review

3 September 2013 : Rating = 2.5/5 : I wanted a direct flights from Lagos to Johannesburg, so my options were South African Airways or Arik Air. Arik Air has a patchy record with a history of delays, and they don't have connecting flights to Cape Town. The SA application process is not direct, it's by proxy with VFS and VFS vets the application before forwarding it to the Embassy, who make the final decision. My association, the Nigerian Society of Physiotherapy, wrote a letter of introduction to say who I am and to please give my application a consideration. The Embassy called the secretary of my society to authenticate my application. The info on the VFS website didn't specify how much history of banking details were required, so we got 3 months banking history but we found out later that we required 6 months. VFS state that they will return one's passport 6 days after application, but in reality it took a month (and required me to write a letter requesting them to expedite the matter. asking my association to do the same, and visiting the South African Embassy). The trip was quite challenging for me, because I went to work that day, and at Lagos Airport the air conditioning doesn't work well. The cabin crew members of South African Airways looked a bit tired, something needs to be done to brighten them up. I had trouble sleeping so I was awake most of the time. I called a cabin crew member after service and he told me they don't do second rounds (even water). I called another cabin crew member and he said he'd get back to me but he never did. I must say that with Emirates I have had the best cabin crew experience. At OR Tambo International Airport there was no stress getting through, they didn't ask many questions. My onward flight with SAA from Johannesburg to Cape Town was good, although when we checked in on our boarding pass, it was written there D8, but there was no announcement that the boarding gate had changed - I spotted on the electronic screen that it had changed to E1. Boarding had already started when it was announced that the boarding gate had changed. An area where SAA can improve is by prompting with email, text messages and phone calls about your flight (other airlines do this). Author is Ummukulthoum Bakare.
