Flying Tips & Tricks How do I find my flight number?
  • You'll find it in your itinerary, which will be sent to you when you've finalized your booking. If you're not sure what to look for, browse the document for a code consisting of letters and numbers. The first couple of letters and single figure are the IATA airline code, which represents the name of your carrier. This is followed by one, two, three or four digits — your flight number.
How early can you check bags for a flight?
  • This can differ between airlines, but it's usually two hours for domestic flights and three hours for international. Check in your suitcase early and sit back and relax in the airport terminal. It sure beats being stuck in traffic and worrying about missing your flight.

They didn’t let us on our original flight and made us have a 24 hour layover

I will never fly on South African Airlines again. Extremely rude and unhelpful staff. Booked extra luggage for $100 online but they wanted to charge me $250 for the extra bag at the Ndola airport . The website showed 100 but then they wanted $250 at the airport. Such a scam!

The ticket attendant wasn't friendly or knowledgeable.

Flight was cancelled a week ago but nobody at Travelocity or SAA bothered to let me know so on arrival at the airport was informed that flight was cancelled. Just pathetic and will never use Travelocity or SAA again. How can you do this to international travelers? Just atrocious.

The airline changed my return flight to a different city in a different country with even an email notice. If I hadn’t of called the day before the flight I would have not know. Crossing the boarder was an extra visa fee and transportation cost.

My mother was told to stay on the plane because she needed a wheelchair. The staff completely forgot about her until she spoke up after everyone departed. Unexceptable after a long overseas flight from South Africa, overseas flight staff are much more friendly and competent!

The workers are the check in desk were kind of quick with us when we asked them a few questions about our seats. Was a little displeased with how they treated us.

Jan 27, 2020

The flight attendant sent me to the wrong side of the plane. Had to wait for everyone to get off to get to my bag

Nothing more to add at this point

Delay experienced disrupted the rest of my plans for the day
