Ciroc ambassadors Cassper Nyovest and Thando Thabethe had a big falling out with Fly SAA after their connecting flights to Germany were delayed which resulted in a mini twar with the airline.
The 'Doc Shebeleza' and local presenter were supposed to head over to Italy on Tuesday for the Ciroc X Moschino campaign launch, however, they had some trouble with South African Airways.
Taking to social media, Nyovest was the first one to voice his displeasure by saying that they were told that they would only fly the next day following a four-hour delay. Followed by Thabethe who slammed the experience as "disappointing and frustrating".
SAA IS A SHIT AIRLINE. After 4 hours of waiting to take off , we are told to go home cause we’re flying tomorrow morning nje fela yalo? Lmao.. waka hlemn!!! Moer— R.M Phoolo (@CassperNyovest) September 18, 2018
We have been traveling for two entire days instead of 11 hours because of @flysaa!!! Missed our connection to Italy and subsequently missed days off our work trip!!! Very disappointing and frustrating!!!— Thando Thabooty (@Thando_Thabethe) September 19, 2018
The official FlySAA Twitter account then responded by saying that they had investigated Mufasa's claims and he was apparently booked on an SA Airlink flight and not an SAA flight.
Hi @CassperNyovest after an investigation we have realized that you were booked to fly with @Fly_Airlink. We know how easy it can be to confuse the two brands @flysaa and SAA Airlink, we apologize on their behalf and trust they will contact you soon. #CareTeam https://t.co/ztPtNLwad2— FlySAA Care (@flysaa_care) September 19, 2018
Which came across as a surprise to most since SA Airlink only deals with domestic flights.
Both Nyovest and Thabethe were also shook by the airline's response with the rapper then posting his boarding pass and booking information as proof that the Twitter account was in fact lying.
I’m confused. This ain’t an SAA FLIGHT? Nare lareng ? pic.twitter.com/Tffab2zVYv— R.M Phoolo (@CassperNyovest) September 19, 2018

The duo did eventually made it to their connecting flight in Germany and are on their way to Milan, Italy through all the trails and tribulations.
