Flights, UK to South Africa

Discussion in 'Travel' started by EX_STAB, May 31, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm idly contemplating a trip to South Africa, perhaps to include some hunting.

    Trying to get an idea of realistic flight prices on the internet is a nightmare. You have to know when you will want to travel etc etc. so I thought that fellow ARRSERS could perhaps give an indication based on recent experience.

    I would be inclined to fly with one of the Flag carriers rather than a budget airline - I can't stand those cramped seats on shorthaul let alone a long flight.

    Any suggestions?
     
  2. Don't forget you can get forces discount.
     
  3. Only if I rejoin - I've been out for 15 years! Thanks all the same. I'm sure it'll help others.
     
  4. Cape Town or Joburg usually around £650 for a return economy class fare. SAA, BA and Virgin all tend to be around this.
     
  5. May be a bit late for you (I've only just discovered this part of the site) but if you can, fly with one of the ME airlines, NOT BA. You'll be far more comfortable.
