Arrivée Johannesburg-Oliver Reginald Tambo International (JNB)
This aisle seat in the center section of the 2x4x2 economy class turned out to be quite uncomfortable. Since the flight was originating at 1900 local time and actually left ~45minutes late, it was 1945 local time in Brazil but 2345 in South Africa - so the person in front of me decided to sleep immediately and I was so cramped, I was not able to see my tray and thus unable to eat - it did not help that the crew member said it was my problem and that they would not wake up a passenger that is inconveniencing another one. It made for a horrible flight experience

Well it looked really impressive when I walked on. Business class is 2x2x2 configuration. I was looking forward to having a seat after I discovered that SAA have some of the widest seats - expecting pure comfort!
It was wide, the belt was long and easy to tighten. The electronic control to put the chair into bed or cradle position also had a massage function!
Each seat had its own tv screen and there was plenty of space between each chair for the bed to lie flat.
I hate the fact that you have someone so close to you. If they are a stranger you get to know them pretty well by the end of the flight. Especially if you're one of those unfortunates to have an aisle seat next to a window seat.... Be prepared to have someone lunging over you whilst sleeping for a midnight pee!
The plug socket on my seat didn't work so I had to use someone else's. I thought this was just a fluke but it also happened on my short flight from jo'burg to Cape Town also.
The massage function didn't work which would have helped trying to get my body moving after a horrendous sleep. The chairs are so uncomfortable that I felt I'd been the recipient of a good "kickin" when I awoke. The "duvet" was really narrow so bits of me were hanging in the cold aircon cabin. However at times it was unbearably hot!
The inflight entertainment was poor. I had already seen most of the "new releases".
All the cabin crew were polite and helpful, and all but one of them seemed genuinely happy to be there.
The food was good and they had an excellent selection of drinks.
I am dreading my 11 hour flight back to the UK. I doubt that they'll get some decent seats before I leave

Everything about the flight was great. Great food, great seat, great view. When I go anywhere, I expect all to be great and that's what I always get.

Cramped, especially the middle seat B and E. I am of athletic slim build, at 96kg and 184cm I am of average male South African size.
Three men of my size just do not fit next to one another.

This is a two class airplane. All seats on business are good. Choose to be in the middle where you can avoid toilette and galley traffic.

Usually fairly pleasant service, but this trip I will remember for a quite frankly, downright rude and unhelpful male member of staff who we wondered why he was in this job at all. Can't wait until the new fleet arrives with up-to-date flight entertainment ie. touch-screen TV's, which the captain announced should be in April. Quite a few empty seats which made for better sleep for the whole family!
