    check in machines very cool and easy to use. Domestic flights between JHB and Cape Town carry politicians who behave in like spoilt red necks. SAA affords them special favor, ETA will be late

    Flight reader board often won't show flights far enough out to know where to check in. Ask one of the SAA staff at the entrance to each check in area and they'll tell you where to go.

    Amazing airport. Everyone in immigrations are so nice and welcoming, the airport is big and customs barely check your bags :). There is wifi in there so that's a rial A plus.

    Network 'AlwaysOn' gives 30 min free wifi if you enter name/email on Complimentary Access tab at far right. And who says it has to be your real name/email? Whatever works!

    Mai Mai market is the oldest market here where locals come to get cured by the powers of muti (traditional African medicine). You can buy zulu clothing, beaded accessories & other African artefacts!

    The best place outside of the terminal/sky lounge is the back corner of KFC with leather couches good for hours of passing out on long layovers. Power outlets everywhere, too.

    Illustrates the rise & fall of South Africa’s era of segregation and oppression, & is an absolute must-see. The Apartheid museum uses film, text, audio & live accounts to provide chilling insights.

    I dun like this story that cannot buy beer before 10am! Hallo! Whoever arrives there has jetlag and a beer would fit very well! The smoking area (bar) at the first floor drives me crazy! No windows!

    Gautrain actually only goes up to 8pm. Also note that you can now use Airport@Vast WiFi. One gig valid for the day.

    Love that airport! There is a lounge (for plebs like me) at the very top with electric plugs. Buy a coffee and a snack downstairs and be comfortable during your layover

    Stores close @10pm, slow wifi and few items on duty free shops in case you need to buy clothes and items for staying one night at the city. At least it's clean and well organized

    Very big airport with always a big crowd. Passenger friendly, but still give extra time for check in and security. Duty free is not that big.

    If travelling with late night or early morning flight, no entertainment....hhhmmmm nor spending of the remaining rands as duty free shops close early...by 11 most of them.

    You don't need your boarding pass to get out of the international transfer lounge. If you have a long layover and your onward airline desk is not yet open, show your itinerary at the screening point.

    Dreaming of a ski vacation? Think Whistler Blackcomb on Canada's West Coast. Voted one of the best places to ski/snowboard and home of the 2010 Olympics. It's a destination that welcomes everyone.

    Lots of food choices, even a Woolworths. You can get a sim card at vodacom. But beware of beggars in the airport.

    Outside Terminal A is outside long term parking. Its R65 per day. Much cheaper than the undercover and convenient if you're late and can't make it to Super South.

    If you're having a long lay over, check out the premier lounge on the 2nd level. Pay 40 dollars and you get to shower, eat, drink, go online with their free wifi!

    Enter International Departures at the passport control closest to the SAA counters. Always quicker than the main one.

    If you're departing internationally from Terminal A (non-SAA) in the evening, walk over to Terminal B after checking in. Security and passport queues are much shorter there evenings.

    Buy a sim card only from Woolies 1 rand. The providers charge 20 rand. Don't use bureau de changes, withdraw from visa better rate. Btw Gautrain goes up till midnight if you need to use it.

    Long layover? Go to the BIDvest lounge, next to the Tax refund (1st floor, just after checking in terminal A). Your business class pass or 40$/275 Rd grants you a 4-hour stay in this business lounge.
