spending an unplanned night in Tambo Airport

Well, we got caught up leaving the UK yesterday, with the French Air Traffic controllers going on strike. Net result, we missed our flight to Malawi Big Cry

SAA promised to get us on a flight with another carrier, which didn't happen. Next SAA Flight to Malawi is Saturday !

Get the impression SAA couldn't organise a p!$$ up in a brewery !

Wondering if there will be anything left in our bags after a night in Johannesburg baggage holding !

Fortunately we still in the airport in the travel hotel.

Going to try and get a flight into Lilongwe.

Wish us luck !

Sounds like you need luck, my flight got cancelled last night 3 hours before it was due to depart. Good thing was I was sitting in the house when it happened. Bloody French they love a strike.

Not to our original destination, but will be glad to see the back of this Airport !



After a day of being mucked about, I've never been happier to get boarding passes !
