Durban to Joburg for R90

15 May 2009 flights
surveyed on 18 Apr 2009

Good to see that flight prices during the Indian Premier League schedule (18 Apr - 24 May) aren't too high - especially thanks to a R451 by Mango Airlines from Durban to Joburg (and this with the Kolkata Knight Riders playing the Deccan Chargers in Joburg the next day). But nothing beats the blisteringly low price of R90 for a Shosholoza Meyl train trip from Durban to Joburg

Travelling to Malawi

Sarah Bramley beautifully describes her trip to Malawi. As there are no direct flights from Entebbe (in Uganda) to Blantyre (in Malawi), she flew with Kenya Airways from Entebbe to Nairobi, and from Nairobi to Lilongwe (Malawi) and finally from Lilongwe to Blantyre (16 hours of travelling). Clearly made of the right stuff, Sarah was visiting Malawi in her capacity as regional manager for the Africa region of the World Water Corp.

Be nice to ground staff...or else!

"Piss off the ground staff enough that they radio through to their colleagues on the plane and you really are in for a bad flight and probably a couple of bad tummy days when you arrive at your destination. Flight staff can spit on your food, piss in your coffee and wipe your steak around the rim of the toilet before it gets anywhere near you. And you would be none the wiser. Some of the more badly behaved cabin crew carry laxative powder that they use to spike the drinks and food of those who get on their tits. It is a simple form of revenge that is not readily traceable. So the best way to get the best service is to be pleasant and affable from the off." extract from Air Babylon by Imogen Edwards-Jones & an anonymous contributor from the airline industry (available from Kalahari).
