I’ve flown SAA twice from Joberg to Zimbabwe and have never been required to remove my small mtm case locked with two keyed locks from my suitcase. Once Delta to Joberg and the other Emirates.Not that I am aware of. It is a SAA rule. Since I have never flown SAA, hopefully a member that has flown them can chime in. Even if you fly to Joburg on Delta and change over to SAA to continue to your destination, you have to remove the ammo from the checked bag and check it as an additional checked bag at no extra charge.
ANY MEMBERS THAT HAVE FLOWN SAA, PLEASE COMMENT ON THIS POST!
Delta always leaves it in the duffle. SAA is about 50:50. They seem to do whatever they feel like at the time. I’m not sure any of them know what the actual rules are.
That's my plan use locking pistol cases. I've checked with my Local TSA and they approved to pack inside checked bags?Just a basic handgun case modified to hold two, 20 round slip top ammo boxes. Two holes added to sliding latches. Two basic small locks. Id added to outside and inside. Placed inside checked bag- never an issue. One time had to check the ammo case separately... on SA flight from Durban to JNB- go figure. Delta straightened it out when checking in for JNB to ATL flight.
