The Comair twins are cheapest (Kulula and BA). Here's a comparison of one-way flights, coach trips and train trips from Johannesburg to Cape Town, leaving Johannesburg between 18h19 and 20h36 on Friday the 15th of April 2011. Prices will change (perhaps even by the time you read this). Kulula Airline is offering the cheapest flight price for the 3rd survey in a row (Velvet Sky only flies in the morning, so wasn't included in the pricing) and, as usual, Shosholoza Meyl is offering the cheapest overland trip. British Airways are cheapest on this route's surveys since the 22 Jan 2010 survey.

1time flight to Maputo

David Batzofin caught a 1time flight from Johannesburg to Maputo:

  • "A surprise awaited us as we boarded the flight, business class seats!  For only the second time in all my years as a travel writer I managed to be on the “right" side of that blue curtain that separates the plastic from the real crockery. Except on 1time flights all passengers are treated equally (I know this for a fact having been on both sides of the curtain)"

  • "It never ceases to amaze me that the airports company spent millions of Rand on" the ORT upgrade but they seem to have bought the public announcement system from a flea market for R10.75!  Either that or they have specially trained staff that have voices that no one can understand."

  • "The ride from the airport to the hotel was uneventful but as always with an African city, exciting and vibrant. Every block seems to have a Vodacom kiosk of some description and furniture being sold off the pavement!"
