While South African Airways competes with the cool sophistication of the European carriers and the renowned efficiency and service-mindedness of the East, it has the unique advantage of being able to offer South African hospitality.

 Passenger Opinions about South African Airways
There is more than adequate road signage when you are about to enter JFK Airport that directs you to the SAA departures-and arrivals area, in fact there is an entrance just to the right of SAA's check- in desks and to the left of their departure gate.
SAA check-in and boarding at JFK Airport is handled by Delta staff and not SAA staff.
Admittedly SAA chose to make use of Delta staff albeit - however it is sad to see and hear about cases where SAA passengers are treated badly by staff of other companies in which I am sure, SAA has faith in.
