On BA operated Comair flight now from JO’berg to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. I asked FA what my choices were for lunch as the announcement as often is the case on these small aircraft was garbled and coupled with the flight noise was impossible to hear. Her answer was “they are delicious” – I asked again, “delicious” was the answer repeated. Oh boy – vegetarian lasagne was all I was given. Edible – that’s all I will say. Certainly much better than some meals I’ve had – on one airline to Bangladesh a few years ago most of the unwrapped dinner contents on one cart (two pieces of muffin bread with mayonnaise in the middle) spilled out and all rolled down the aisles under people’s feet.
There are classes for those interested in making a career of packaging. The college I went to offered these under the Industrial Technology department. After pulling the plastic tab to release the cover on my small Italian pesto salad, it immediately broke. The rest of the lid was so tightly melded with the rest of the plastic that I was unable to get it open with the the teeth or by crushing the damn thing in my hand!
We are landing at Victoria Falls Airport but half the passengers seem confused on whether to continue on the 10 minute flight from VF Airport to Livingston Airport on the Zambia side. Part of that confusion comes from the ticket stubs for those going to Livingston say Victoria Falls Airport.
We have no car rental – may just wing it for the first few days here – will definitely be seeing the falls from both countries.
