Great flight overall but I found a squashed perfume box on my luggage when I arrived home,I suspect it was squashed between the Dar Es Salaam and Johannesburg flight,my question is what if I was searched at the airport,I suspect someone stole it from the duty free sales,took the bottle and stashed it in my bag ,not impressed at all,please check your air hostesses thoroughly
