As I was looking at the recent uploaded pics on the database, I noticed South African Airways uses many types of widebodies to fly to ZRH: 332 (bmi), 342, 747SP, 743, 742. Is there a reason for this ??? Or does SAA have a real steady schedule for its aircrafts and I guess crews.

South African was mainly using B747-300s during 2002, they then changed to B747-200s, B747-300s and B747SPs during winter and then to B747-200s and B747-300s in spring. Since May they are operating B747-200s and A340-200s, from June 5 on however, all flights will be operated with A340-200s.
