...and that’s no April Fools’ Day joke!
Johannesburg, 2 April 2014: You will be forgiven for thinking that South Africa’s favourite airline, kulula.com’s intention to host the first ever braai in the sky was a mere April Fools’ Day prank. But truth be told, kulula really did in fact take to the skies to elevate a great South African tradition with the first ever braai in the sky.
For this experiential braai-flight two brave kulula braai masters got kitted out in their braaing gear, with extra-long braai tongs in hand and attempted to braai boerewors and chops to perfection in mid-air.
Shaun Pozyn, Marketing Manager of kulula.com says, “Braaing in the sky was an interesting exercise and a great accomplishment for the team. Although it had a few challenges, kulula is delighted to have hosted the very first ever braai in the sky and we feel we have done this South African tradition proud.
But all things considered, unfortunately a braai offering on board our kulula flights is not going to be possible for now. We’ve decided to leave the braaing where it rightfully belongs: on South African soil and rather let our in-house catering division, Food Directions, continue to take food preparation to new heights.”
