Nice quick no nonsense flight from Johannesburg to Maputo. Quick service as it a ver short flight, but I did not felt pressured. Food just a snack but really sufficient for such a short trip.Will use them again if I can.

No pictures allowed to be taken of plane or Maputo Airport. They...

We arrived in time and checked in with no problem, only to discover 2 hours later that there is no LAM plane coming or leaving the airport today. All flight canceled!! And no one was giving us any information for hours. We then learned that this has happened several times before. It's a total chaos So if you can, don't...

Conveniently LAM baggage allowance included surfboards to Inhambane. Definitely the best way to travel to Mozambique for a surf trip.

Check in fine. Very polite and organized. Good flight. Lady first officer was flying this leg. Sweet landing. Cabin service good. This was the new Embraer 190 which is always a pleasure to be on. Collecting baggage was no problem; no delays.

Unfortunately this is one of only two airlines that are available on this route. Flight time is one hour. It is better to travel by car, which is a 7 hour...
