South African Airways: Allways bring your credit card

An American tourist recently had to pay two times for her ticket for a flight from Lusaka, Zambia, to Cape Town (via Johannesburg) because she couldn't present the particular credit card she made the booking with when checking with her e-ticket. South African Airways is using this credit card for identification of the customer and precaution against ticket fraud and is therefore not accepting (international) passports, driver's licenses, or other credit card as valid identification. So pls keep in mind:
If you're flying with an electronic ticket, "all you have to do is present an I.D. document and credit card (for authentication purposes) to the check-in agent and you will be issued with the normal boarding pass." (src.)
