Talk about travel and lifestyle at its best, the new British Airways Airbus A380 is a lifestyle experience with its innovative design and style.It was only fitting that international model Georgia May Jagger front the launch of the airline’s South African advertising campaign, with South Africa’s very own Springboks Jean de Villiers and Bryan Habana, who were joined by England captain Chris Robshaw.

The British Airways A380 has made travelling to distant land a lifestyle experience one itches to do just to get into that all new luxury liner. The A380 will begin flying to Johannesburg on 12 February 2014, although the inaugural flight is likely to be earlier.

World Traveller fares from South Africa start at R8 380, World Traveller Plus from R15 380, Club World from R30 380 and First from R53 380. The airline will initially operate three A380 services to Johannesburg a week which will increase from March 10 2014 to six flights. These flights will be part of the airline’s normal schedule to South Africa’s commercial capital.

Since British Airways took delivery of its first superjumbo earlier this month, Johannesburg is only the third A380 route to be confirmed, after Los Angeles and Hong Kong.  Another two aircraft, from a total order of 12, are due to be delivered before the end of the year.

British Airways’ A380s can accommodate 469 customers across four cabins. Customers in First will be seated in front of the main deck. The cabin offers 14 seats and is evolved from the existing First class. Club World (business class) customers can choose from 44 seats on the main deck, or 53 seats on the upper deck. The upper-deck seats will be arranged in a new 2:3:2 configuration across the cabin. The 55 World Traveller Plus (premier economy) seats are located on the upper deck, while World Traveller (economy) customers can choose seats on both the main and upper deck.

The aircraft’s innovative design makes it much quieter during take-off and landing and the cabin has the lowest noise level of any existing passenger aircraft. The advanced air conditioning system, with 15 different temperature control zones, contributes to reduced noise levels and customer comfort, with cabin air being changed every three minutes. In addition the A380 It offers exceptional fuel efficiency compared to the aircraft it is replacing.

Bryan Habana, who is taking up a three-year contract with French club side Toulon, says that with the A380 flying to South Africa home won’t seem nearly as far away.

“There are lots of reasons I like flying British Airways and now there’s another one.”

After a tour of the aircraft, Jean de Villiers was particularly impressed by its size: “Seventy-three meters from nose to tail; that’s half the length of Newlands and big enough to carry 31 rugby teams halfway around the world.”

Georgia May Jagger, who visited South Africa for the first time in June last year, said: “I’ve been looking for an excuse to explore more of that incredible country and this provides the perfect opportunity.”

The A380 is part of a £5bn investment over five years in new aircraft, smarter cabins, elegant lounges, new technologies and onboard catering to improve the travelling experience and make it easier, more convenient and more comfortable in the air and on the ground.

@Coffee Lifestyle Premium Coffee Experience

At Coffee - florida road

The coffee trend in South Africa is growing with every sip, cup and saucer. I found it interesting that in a place such as Durban, South Africa where the weather is always somewhat warm there would be such a notable rise in the trend in coffee. @Coffee on florida road struck my fancy, first with the dated yet contemporary aesthetics of the place. If nothing, the corrosive bare bricks alone gave a rigid character to the place, one of old spice and bare back.

At Coffee – The rising coffee trend

Coffee has always been the sought of drink associated with winter, a cup or two to chase away that winter chill usually does the trick every now and then. But, with the times coffee has evolved and now caters for a variety of tastes, budget and delicacies.This has brought about a new-found love for premium coffee worldwide and Durban with its warm weather is no stranger to a good cup of ground coffee.

What is interesting about the space @Coffee is its focus on coffee, the accompaniments offered are centred around the customers enjoyment of coffee. Which is why @Coffee won an award for best coffee in Durban. Finding a good cup of coffee is a battle as we all know. I have had my fair share of bad coffee which made me appreciate a good premium cup @Coffee.

@Coffee is the brain child of Wayne Snyman and Raymond Msweli. I had the pleasure of chatting to Wayne about @Coffee; it was initially a chat which later turned into a conversation. Wayne is a charismatic young man who loves and lives @Coffee he is a hands-on coffee enthusiast. “@Coffee is a place where you can get good premium coffee in or on the go, a place where you can eat your croissants with your hands or a fork and knife” said Wayne.

Wayne has many ideas to diversify @Coffee to cater for his busy customers, I loved his coffee on the go concept which he is working hard to promote. With the demanding and busy lives we lead it only makes sense for business to come to us.

Local is lekker, although Wayne’s premium coffee beans are imported they are roasted to perfection in South Africa giving the beans just the right texture and aroma. This aspect is important to Wayne and Raymond as consistency is key with their niche market. @Coffee is in the business of providing a lifestyle experience of good premium coffee at the convenience of the customer. Its positioning on florida road a busy lifestyle environment means @Coffee caters for an informed clientel who value quality and good service.

@Coffee offers a premium coffee experience and friendly environment for friends, family and colleagues. @Coffee is about the experience and coffee culture that anyone can appreciate over conversation, lunch or on the go. I found the spot unique as there are not that many coffee bars with spearheaded coffee fanatics like Wayne Snyman.
