All depends on the hardware for your flight. My son who is over 6 ft but slender uses SAA frequently on JNB to MUC. He never complained and he keeps in flying with them.

One wird of caution: if you have an onward flight from JNB either within SA or into neighboring countries, make sure you have all on one ticket. If there is a delay and you miss the onward connection, you will not be helped i.e. will be considered noshow and you will have to buy a new tkt.

Also higher fare classes have preference when being rebooked. SAA sticks to their rules.

It's more or less the same as other airlines, you can check out reviews on the airline quality website.
