With only 30 000 one-way tickets on offer, it was going to be a wild ride.

Tweeps started sharing their experiences since the waiting room opened early on Wednesday morning.

In previous years, customers were left fuming after being thrown out of the virtual waiting room or made to wait for hours only to be told the tickets were sold out.

Now that the sale has been on for a few hours, some lucky people managed to get their hands on the good stuff, while others were once again left disappointed.

But in true Mzansi fashion, many saw the funny and came up with golden nuggets of wisdom.

In the meantime, just a word of advice when booking tickets: “Many people are asking if you can book return tickets. You can make bookings for return tickets when you are on the site.

“The R8 flights are R8 one-way, so if you manage to grab an R8 seat out and an R8 seat on your return flight you can purchase a return flight for R16,” the airline confirmed via its social media channels.
