Off to South Africa again to rid ourselves of the disappointment of the Christmas cancellation. We were booked from Manchester to Johannesburg via Munich on Lufthansa, avoiding Heathrow at all costs! The outbound flight was delayed and then met further delay when a landing slot at Munich was announced as being +1:20 meaning that we would miss the long haul to Jo’burg. An earlier slot was thankfully found and we landed with 20 minutes to spare and dashed off one aircraft straight on to the next, even the luggage managed to make it across. After that fright everything went smoothly and we landed in Africa just as planned.
