12 Dec 2008 flights
on 15 Nov 2008

I'm sorry to inform you that if you haven't bought your plane ticket for the December holidays yet, you're going to pay through your nose. The lowest flight price we found today (on the Durban to Cape Town flight route) was Mango Airline's R999...and that's for a one-way flight (the R999 is just under Mango's record high flight price of R1085 for a flight on the 27th June 2008).

BA most expensive business class ever

SAA offered the cheapest business class flight this week, and BA quoted the most expensive business class flight cost we've seen on the DUR-CPT route - their previous high was R3177 for the 4 Oct 2008 survey of flights from Durban to Cape Town.

Bus prices are at the highest level we've ever surveyed, with the cheapest bus trips from Durban to Cape Town being with Citiliner and City to City (both R410).

Mission work in South Africa

Judging from the blog entries I read, there are a fair number of people visiting South Africa to carry out mission work here. Matt Schmucker, an executive director from 9Marks and member of the Capitol Hill Baptist Church, shares some photos and thoughts:

  • apparently Saudi Arabian money is being used to fund schools in South Africa, in the hope of converting children to Islam.

  • there are many opportunities to teach the teachings, but pastors are distracted by people's physical needs, such as the many burials of people who have died of AIDS.
