1time Airline ran a R299 flight price special a little while ago, which was sold out before 9am (we'll be reviewing flights we bought on this special in September). Today, we were very surprised to see that even outside the window of the special there are still some R299 flights left (sadly we only spotted them on the CPT-DUR flight route). This R299 flight price is cheapest 1time price we have ever surveyed from Cape Town to Durban (in Friday flight surveys), but not the cheapest ever (Kulula's R288 on 21 Jul 2007 was cheaper). Amazingly, this 1time flight is cheaper than any of the buses/coaches!

*one-way, including tax, leaving CPT between 1344 & 2031 on the 11th Sep 2009 (prices will change). Prices will change.
** this is the cheapest BA British Airways flight price we have ever surveyed from Cape Town to Durban (British Airways R841 on 28 Apr 2007 was the previous cheapest). Flight BA6313 may also be booked on the Kulula website (as flight MN6313) for R973, R440 more expensive - which shows it pays to check the prices of Kulula 4-digit-flight-code flights on the British Airways South Africa website (see our tips for cheap flights in South Africa).
*** this is also the cheapest SAA flight we've surveyed on the CPT-DUR route (previous cheapest was the SAA R642 price on 21 Jul 2007)

Photography lessons in Africa

Lindsay kicked off her trip with 5 days at an orphanage in Kitwe, Zambia, where she taught a photography workshop (it warms my heart to hear of people helping others - that's what life's all about). After Zambia, she flew from Kitwe to Johannesburg, and from Johannesburg to Cape Town, where they enjoyed a bit of a vacation (and where better). After Cape Town she chartered a flight to Selinda, a remote Botswana reserve, where she again taught children photography.

No home advantage for Lufthansa in Frankfurt

"Sometimes aircraft operating in their home airport are given a bit of priority by air traffic control over those other aircraft from foreign countries. At least that's what the crew of a Lufthansa 737 in Frankfurt expected when they began to taxi out towards the runway and were told to follow a Pan Am aircraft. They disregarded this instruction and nipped in front of the Pan Am aircraft. The radio conversation went like this. Pan Am's call sign is 'Clipper'.

  • ATC: 'Lufthansa, I told you to follow the Clipper.'

  • Lufthansa: 'I didn't see the Clipper.'

  • ATC: 'Lufthansa, turn right, right, right and right again.'

  • After a minute, during which the Lufthansa jet executed the manoeuvre and had therefore gone 'around the block' to a point behind the Pan Am aircraft...

  • ATC: 'Now do you see the Clipper?'" quote from the book Airline Confidential (we recommend Kalahari online books purchases).
