SAA - London or FRA in C

Which flight would you choose to go to CPT?

The one out of London or the one out of FRA?

Which is the most comfortable one. I thought I would go for the one out of London because on the return they have an arrival lounge which you don't have in FRA.

How is the arrivazl lounge in London?

Plusses for LHR:
Daily frequencies (vs. 3 per week from FRA)
Own arrivals lounge in LHR
Own departure lounge at LHR (but it really isn't wonderful apart from the showers; pathetic snack and drink choices and often surly staff)
Choice of C or F

Plusses for FRA:
A340-600 with great lie-flat beds with hard shell (though the new seats in C on the 747 are also very nice)
Not sure what the LH lounge used by SA is like

The arrivals lounge at LHR is very adequate and has a most congenial ambience. Very nice, spacious showers; a selection of hot and cold meal items; internet access etc. Since all the flights from CPT and JNB arrive in pretty quick succession it does get busy enough for a queue to develop for the showers - but it is well managed and there is never a sense of over-crowding.
