I am thinking of going to Cape Town in November and trying to get a good deal on a flight from the UK.
I have looked at BA and South African Airlines, but they are about £740 - £800 return, although they are direct, but I have the trek to Heathrow.
I have then found Globespan who from the start of November fly direct from Manchester to Cape Town. Economy from about £570. As far as I can see the downside is the leg room (30" which is OK for 2 hours but for 12?), luggage allowance, and no food. They seem to be putting the no frills concept on long haul.
Does anyone know how reliable they are, what the service is like etc.
