We’re on our way!
I find the airport a bit claustraphobic – the main room is quite small, packed, and the ceiling is just a bit too low.
The final packing process was extremely unpleasant – too much stuff.
Excess baggage on Etihad Airways was simply exorbitant. Etihad wanted to charge +- R390 per kilogram of excess baggage. So a suitcase and an extra box would have cost us an additional R6,500.
For comparison, I could get a family member to fly out, bringing the luggage with them, for R7,178.00.
R3,478.00 of that amount would be for taxes.
