Default Pariah No More: SAA’s 747-400s

Apartheid brought upheaval to the operations of SAA but the post-apartheid era has brought no lesser change. At the core of SAA's rebirth during the 1990s was the Boeing 747-400 and in this post I look at the airline's growth and struggles in the decade after its first big Jumbo joined the fleet:

I'm glad you mentioned no lesser change. In fact if anything the country has gone down big style and it's a typical example of another ' well run African country'. Everything that was run properly in its so called 'pariah days' are now virtually on the verge of collapse. SAA one of the country's most valued assets and a state run organisation that had the pride of everyone is now struggling financially and so badly run, its on the verge of administration! A very sad state of affairs.
