We fly Mango when BA are cheaper

BA were offering the cheapest flights, but we decided to book Interlink Airlines because we'd never flown them before, but the final twist in the tale was that we ended up being bumped onto a Mango Airlines flight! This is the second time this year we've unintentionally flown Mango (in May we booked 1time but missed our flight)!

Mango have got strict on luggage

Mango Airlines seem to have got much stricter on their luggage checks. They complained that an item of hand luggage weighed 9kg (the maximum is 7kg), and we had to take some books out and place it in another bag. They also said that they thought the hand luggage bag was too big, but did not take this further (the piece of hand luggage they thought was too big we have travelled with numerous times on numerous airlines - including an overseas trip where we flew with easyJet who are super-strict).

Mango juice

Mango's in-flight magazine is called Mango "Juice". Interesting advertisers and news in their July issue included:

Momentum's Wellness Program - you can get up to 50% off Mango flights if you're a member.

The Mantis Group has teamed up with London-based Agency X to create the PhotoFrame:Wild! application for Apple iPhone users. Shamwari Game Reserve supplied Agency X with a number of wildlife photos, which were incorporated into PhotoFrame.

Sea Point - a suburb in transition. Sea Front For All stands in opposition to the proposed development of the Sea Point Promenade and Pavilion sites (they want to develop a boutique hotel, shopping complex, gym, etc..). They argue that the development will destroy one of the few safe, readily accessible public open space in the city. You go Seafa, stop that development.

Joburg hotel, "The Rosebank" has been rebranded "Crowne Plaza Johannesburg".
