Our Lufthansa Airbus A380 from Frankfurt to Johannesburg was also namedthe ‘Johannesburg’. It’s a big bird, and on take-off it feels too slow and sluggish to lift off from the runway, but then it actually does. I sat upstairs on the wing. That was a 10 hr flight, and then a ‘hop’ of 2 hours from Johannesburg to Cape Town on South African airways got me to my final destination. Cape Town was at a sweltering 36°C (97°F) today, but the day temperatures are projected to go down somewhat for the rest of the week.
