Mango Airlines check-in at Cape Town airportRecord low price from Mango Airlines

Well done Mango Airlines, on your record low flight price to fly from Durban to Johannesburg, of R296. The previously lowest flight price we've surveyed on the Durban to Johannesburg flight route was R315 on the 28th July 2007 by Nationwide Airlines. However, the record flight price on any route still belongs to Kulula airline (R288 from Cape Town to Durban in a 21 July 2007 survey).

OpenSkies Airline

British Airways have shaken up the trans-atlantic airline industry by launching OpenSkies, OpenSkies Airline flights will take place from Brussels and Paris (more destinations to be added later) to New York, taking advantage of the EU-US open skies agreement signed in 2007. Good luck to OpenSkies Airline.

OpenSkies Airline is a British Airways subsidiary

Americans in Cape Town

Cape Point near Cape Town, South AfricaAfter flying from Washington to Cape Town via Frankfurt (20 hours in the sky) with "South African Air", Sara shares her thoughts about the mother city:

  • on the 20 hour flight to Cape Town - "By the time we arrived, we were exhausted"

  • "Cape Town is gorgeous"

  • "ritzy near the seafront" (no doubt that Seapoint's Ritz hotel helps with that!)

  • "Summer here brings stiff winds"

  • Hermanus - "gives Big Sur and Australia‚Äôs Great Ocean Road a serious run for their money."

Sara's catching a flight from Cape Town to Windhoek next, we look forward to hearing her thoughts on Namibia.

South Africa - comes with a danger alert

What do South Africa, Turkey, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Russia, India, Morocco, Thailand, the Balkans and Kenya have in common? According to the Indepedent (link removed as it stopped working), an Irish site, these exotic countries should be treated with caution when visiting. House robberies was highlighted as a particular problem in South Africa, whilst it was mentioned that the problems in Pakistan are overflowing into India.

Avis - blowing money on advertising?

While watching the cricket test match between South Africa and the West Indies, we couldn't help noticing the billboards advertising Avis car rental. It must cost a lot of cake to advertise on those billboards during a test match, and considering that Avis is a company (as opposed to being a charity), those advertising costs are surely included in car rentals.

Ryanair's views on SARS (and that's not the South African Receiver of Revenue!)

A Life in Full Flight
"The (non-existent) threat to Ireland from SARS is a media intervention which is in danger of running riot because of the absence of any common-sense response from panicked civil servants and spineless politicians... More people in Europe got killed falling off barstools this weekend than got killed from SARS." Michael O'Leary (the one in charge of Ryanair flights) expressing his views on SARS - Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, as told in Alan Ruddock's book, "A Life in Full Flight: The story of the man who made Ryanair take off".
