As the question states, I would like to know if anyone has flown this airline in recent weeks or has scheduled flights in the coming weeks/months? I am hesitant to book with them as they are part of SAA, but they do have a route and time that really suites me coming up that the other choices do not.

I do know that Qatar air entered into an agreement with mango recently, which to me is at least positive news.

I would really prefer Safair or Airlink based on local recommendations, but considering Mango and Comair based on departure times from JNB to get me to PLZ.

Thanks

Neither Mango nor ComAir carries guns!
Use Airlink or Safair as they are the only ones carrying guns now. Which travel agent are you using?
We are waiting on our July domestic flights just waiting to see how the schedule is when we get closer to time.

@Philip Glass ,

Thanks for the input. This go around I am not bringing a rifle with me so that part of the equation is not a concern for me. Like you, I am waiting until closer to time, I arrive in JNB on May 2.

We have an August flight and will use Airlink. We're still waiting on US carriers to make up their minds before making the call though. Im hoping Delta will decide to fly.

My prediction is that Biden will ease restrictions after 100 days. He will then take credit for whipping the virus. Whatever! We just want to fly to Africa!
He has to remove the restrictions on RSA citizens flying to the US for DL204 to fly. This is what we will be watching closely for.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
