    Meet and greet at Johannesburg

    Our final destination was JNB, we were thru customs, on to SAP to retrieve guns and in the road by 5:15am. Flight landed at 4:00am. The airport was essentially empty!! Only person we saw in customs was the woman sitting in a glass booth, stamped our passports and we were on our way.

    Delta Update

    Not sure if anybody that has flown on Qatar noticed or not. Although the flights were not full, the cargo holds were. We actually had a slight delay on one flight while they finished cramming cargo in. This may be how they are keeping costs down and are able to keep planes in the air with less...

    COVID-19 Coronavirus UPDATES, BANS, CLOSURES, ADVISORY, etc.

    I used Covid Consultants. Pricey but they had sample by 9am next day and I had results by 6am the following morning. Make sure when you get results you email back that you need Dr signature and they will add it to the results as well

At first they were saying that the test was too old, until I pointed out that we were mid transit and SA requires...

    Gun Case - Have I outsmarted myself?

    This was my exact experience on our way home two weeks ago. We come thru customs and into the baggage carousels. I look down to the end and my gun case is laying on the floor. My buddies case is on a dolly with a Qatar Airlines rep. I have a Tuffpak so I guess they didn’t bother to look for a...

    RSA to be placed on “Do Not Travel” list??

    If the test results have “Rapid” any where on them, they will not be accepted. Saw that first hand with another passenger
