Will Use Mango for Comrades Marathon Flight

2014-01-04. Rating : 5/5 : I just want to thanks Mango Airlines for the amazing flight from Lanseria - Ctn on Wednesday 1st January 2014. Once again as always I experienced a warm welcome on-board while boarding the plane. I will still use Mango Airline for future flights. I flew a couple times of with Mango in the past. I enjoyed the new plane. I want to wish you all a happy 2014 and all the best wishes. See you again on board end of May when flying to Durban for Comrades Marathon. Johan Hendrik van Zyl

To Cape Town for the December Holidays

2013-07-24. 4/5 : My last flight was from Lanseria to Cape Town in December. I choose to fly from Lanseria because it is much closer to Centurion - where I live. Furthermore, I was going to Cape Town for the December Holidays. I chose to fly with Mango, because it was the cheapest at the time. The flight was good, but babies on a flight irritate me, because of their crying. I will rate the airline a 4, because we waited almost 45 min for our luggage. The rest of my trip was super fun, we went to "Struisbaai", where we tried fishing and visited the lighthouse. We just chilled and also stayed in Cape Town with family for a few days. We went to a restaurant where you can try to eat a 1kg hamburger in under an hour - then its free (Saints burger joint). We went to dive out a few crayfish (within the quota!) and also tried out Fire & Ice's huge milkshakes!

First Mango Lanseria flight review

2011-06-03. 4/5 : Mango only started flying from Lanseria on 1 June, so I was one of the first to try out their new services. The best part of it was that I only paid R320.50 for the flight, as there was a on the go (the young lady from SAAF next to me was pleased with the R450 she'd paid!).

The check-in queue for Mango at Lanseria Airport was short, but you do actually have to check-in with a person - they don't yet have the automated check-in machines like at Cape Town International Airport.

Car rental temporary offices

Lanseria Airport is being reconstructed, and here's some photos of the cute temporary offices for the car rental agencies. First First Car Rental:

Choose your seat as you book

I was quite impressed that you can choose your seats on a Mango flight at the point of reservation. I paid R20 extra to get the seat behind the wing and next to the window, so that I could take better photos from the aircraft (the first 2 rows and the rows next to the wings were all booked up, presumably for Mango Flex and Mango Plus ticket-holders). By contrast, on my Kulula Cape Town - Lanseria flight, they didn't charge for choosing your seats, but you could only choose seats 24 hours before the flight.

I did duff up with the window seat though, as it turned out that it was too dark to take photographs...aisle seat is a better bet on the 17h50 flight down from Lanseria to Cape Town. Finally, I cant give an honest review without saying, Mango, I love you, and I love your prices, and I love your marketing, but your seats are just too close together for a guy my size to be comfortable.

A tale of 3 Kululas at Lanseria Airport

On the left we have the commercial side of Kulula with its Europcar-branded plane, on the right we have a wannabe Kulula plane, without comics or branding or interesting items, if there's consistency on the inside then jokes would have been banned!

Lanseria Airport

If I had to get stuck at an airport like Tom Hanks in The Terminal, in South Africa I'd choose Lanseria Airport. Its Wiesenhof restaurant (partially owned by Kobus Wiese) has fantastic unimpeded views of the runway (a photographer's delight), TV screens to watch the Super Rugby and a couple of powerpoints to charge up your equipment. There are no business class lounges at the departures at Lanseria, so everybody is treated equally - a good feeling.
