Passengers booked on flights between Johannesburg (JNB) and Munich (MUC) will get re-accommodated on SAA’s services between Johannesburg (JNB) and Frankfurt (FRA) as well as London Heathrow (LHR). Some passengers travelling to Munich (MUC), and others travelling via Munich (MUC) to other destinations, will be re-accommodated for some of their journey on partner airlines in the Star Alliance to minimise delays.
