Passenger feedback

[question]John A. Sundal (Norway) - January 25, 2014
Your new terminal very nice, but I have a comment and a question regarding transit time:
Lufthansa’s flight from Frankfurt arrive Johannesburg in the morning and are parked far away from the main Terminal. Leaving the aircraft, getting bussed from plain to terminal takes some time. For transit passengers you have to get true passport control and security control, then a long walk to terminal 8 to board a SAA international flight that also are parked away from the gates, so you have to get bussed to the aircraft.
My question is?
From the incoming LH flight have opened the doors for you to disembark the aircraft (a 747 or 380), getting bussed into the transit terminal, a normal queue in line at the passport control, the same at the security control. Then a long normal walk to a gate in terminal 8 for flight to Mauritius.
How many minutes will I use?
