..... and the lie-falt-seat is the best seat in C, fare better than LH C, even the new C.
Inflight Service could be better on SAA.

Thanks for the answers.

Do you have experience with SAA out of London also lie flat but on 744.

Better or not than Airbus out of FRA?

If you look into the SAA Website, they say, that at the moment the 744 will be refurbished, so it might happend that there is the old configuration with the older "Millennium Seats". I have flown them on CPT-LHR one year ago, very nice but fare behind the new seats.

So if you make sure to get the new seat, fly via FRA.

Christian,

Thanks for the quick repsonse.

I calles SAA and they told me that out of London each fligth has the flat seats.

But if you compare the seats, you will see that the seat out of FRA is a kind of shell-shape. So the person behind you won't disturb you when coming out of his seat.

On the other side the flat seat on 744 out of London doesn't have the shell but has more legroom.
