  The dreaded SAA
by Saagar

Getting through to Zambia by air from Europe is quite convenient.
Lufthansa flies Frankfurt-Johannesburg with a good connection (2 hrs transit) to Zambia by South African Airways.
The slight bother is on the return when the flight arrives Frankfurt at an ungodly time in the morning (5ish am). It is also dependent on SAA's successful arrivals and departures in Lusaka. That may not be so easy with an unruly staff, arrogant top management and incometetnt ground handling at Lusaka. The situation evolved into a strike and turmoil when I was there. If you want a better departure deal than having to use SAA's airlink via Jo'burg, fly British Airways, Ethiopian Airways or Kenya Airways.
