Due to the fact that this was a code sharing flight with Lufthansa I was not able to book my seat for free more than 23 hours before the flight (something you can do if you fly with SAA). Luckily the flight was rather empty and I had an open seat next to mine – giving me personal space on this long flight. Food on this ten hour flight was of a high quality, especially breakfast: a choice between a warm and continental breakfast. The light attendants were rather unfriendly (I suppose they would call them “professional”) and did only the minimum (no water or juices were served throughout this long flight – something that is standard practice with other airlines). At the end of the flight one of the toilets were dirty.
