Even at 06h00 the Johannesburg traffic is already almost gridlocked.
Luckily for me the traffic was going in the other direction...
Not so great for the driver, Zee, who would have to battle to get back to the office.
Many thanks to Max Abro Shuttle Service for getting me to ORT on time
And yours truly was a VERY happy fellow...
BECAUSE I AM FLYING BUSINESS CLASS!
Thank you Dennis!
A lack of in-flight entertainment made me actually listen to the safety briefing.
But, how does a passenger "breath normally" when the plane is falling out of the sky?
I would be screaming like a banshee.
The business class section was almost devoid of passengers.
Aside for me, there we only two others
and one of those worked for the airline.
I wonder why?
Breakfast...with plastic cutlery and crockery?
In Business Class?
But I am told (on very good authority) that that will change on our return flight
WATCH THIS SPACE!
From the cold of Johannesburg to the heat of Rwanda.
We arrive at our destination...
To find out more about the airline and their flight schedules, visit:
And, like almost every other African airport that I have flown into, it is undergoing renovations.
Off on the first leg of our weekend adventure...
Bring it on!
My hosts for the weekend.
