Rude Awakening: SAA Shuts Down Travel Queen Bonang Matheba In One Tweet


Media Personality and travel queen Bonang Matheba received the surprise of her life when it suddenly dawned on her that the world does not revolve around her.

Bonang took to Twitter to complain about SAA’s services, especially the food. Instead of getting an apology or a promise to do better, she got a rude awakening that has landed her on the trends list.

She tweeted the airline;

“We don’t like the couscous. Also that meal with the stew. Please hey. Also the funny cheese platter what what. Please.”

Afterwards, a Twitter account with the handle @FlySAA_Care gave Bonang the most unexpected answer. Apparently, the person who wrote the response has zero chill and doesn’t care if you are a celebrity with more than one million followers on Twitter alone.

Thus, notwithstanding that she was a customer too and a regular one at at that, FlySAA told Bonang that she only spoke for herself as other customers enjoyed the same meals she complained about.

“Hi, please note that other passengers enjoyed the meals.”

The response left B unhappy and she didn’t waste time in telling the airline it should have apologised instead of responding like that. To wrap it up, she called it a “trash airline”

Following the chaos, Twitter was left divided over who was wrong or right respectively. While some termed the response as “unprofessional” some others commended the airline for not paying much attention to the issue. After all, you can’t please everyone.

They also blamed travel queen Bonang Matheba for not complaining in person after being served the meal instead of making it public.

Nonetheless, team Bonang won’t have any of it as they rallied round her.

Anyway, some users pointed out that the response did not actually come from an official FlySAA Twitter account. Notably, the account that sent the response doesn’t have many followers. However, it’s been active since September last year.

Here are some of the reactions on the issue;
