Travelled for business from Jhb to Windhoek on Air Namibia departing at 17h55. The onboard service was great with a very friendly cabin crew. Airbus A319. Was a very comfortable flight for me.

Due to pure luck I was seated in the row just behind first class which meant I had more legroom than I've ever had on a flight which was great! But that wasn't all that was good about this flight, the staff were nice and genuinely friendly, the breakfast was terrific, the flight was smooth, it was so enjoyable I...

The business class seats on Air Namibia are very large, quite reasonable in price and there is plenty of extra legroom. I have yet to experience the business class cabin full.

Flight was on time to Durban and back, no hiccups, competent pilots, friendly hostesses/hosts, modern aircraft and enjoyable food. I only fly Air Nam if I have that option. Economy class is good but their business class is really special.

Modern and functional machine, enough space in economy class for my long legs, friendly personnel and good food. I liked the breakfast - which was clearly a 'German' and not an 'African' breakfast :) - and the presence of the personnel serving water all through the night (and without a blink of an eye serving beer to other passengers). Best...

When we approached the airlines for compensation i was only re-imbursed one third of my original ticket on Air Namibia. I...

Air Namibia is good for what it is. It is no award winner but serves it's purpose and gets you to where you need to be. Having worked in the airline industry in Namibia I was familiar with some of the pilots and trust their capabilities. I have flown a variety of airlines and yes it doesn't fall in line...

Tried to make use of an existing air ticket to upgrade to Business Class was advised that i had to buy a new ticket, SORRY I don't understand this practice. Surely the airline would be only to pleased for me to pay an ADDITIONAL amount (not buy a new ticket) to upgrade to Business Class, as this would leave an...

My company buy tickets from Air Namibia at least twice a month. We most frequently fly Whk to Jhb and Whk to Walvis bay. The drive from Whk to the airport is between 30 to 40 minutes. And I was stuck in traffic since there was a minister that us civilians have to wait for before we can continue on...
