Can anybody please tell me what aircraft types comprise the SAA fleet nowadays? Have the ordered 777s yet?
Thankyou

They have 1 767-200ER in use on African routes along with A320-200s. I will be flying them in May, between Jo'burg and Cape Town on one of their new 737-800s. When does their first 738 with the winglets get delivered by the way?

Current fleet:
8 x B747-400
6 x B747-300
5 x B747-200
3 x B747SP
11 x B737-800 (+ 10 building/on order)
17 x B737-200 (+ ±5 more on order)
2 x B767-200ER (being retired this year)
±2 x A320-200 (going very soon)
±4 x A300B4 (going very soon)

The CRJs and DH8s belong to S.A. Express, a separate company, and are not part of SAA's fleet.
Similarly, the J41s, etc. belong to S.A. Airlink.

Southflite,
I'm sure it was a typo, but it says in your post,
"17 x B737-200 (+ ±5 more on order)"

Is it 752? I'm almost positive that 732 production has been dead for the longest time.  Smile

I know some of the A320's have gone to TAM of Brazil, because they are being replaced with their new B738's. There was a note about it in, I think, Airliner World.

And I think SAA has ordered their 732's from Lan Chile, but will supposedly replace them with 738's. It's definately not a typo, SAA are full of 732's, and there are no 752's in SAA's fleet. But come to think of it, why hasn't SAA got any 757's? They could use them on the "Golden triangle" route, right?

Just to clear up some issues that were raised:

The 732s:
Yes, these are B737-200s and there are more on order, from leasing companies such as Safair - they are all secondhand, and so far (with one ex-Lufthansa exception) all formerly operated by BA.
It is intended to replace them with 737NGs in about five years' time.

The A320s:
With one exception (ZS-SHB), these are all going to TAM of Brazil - they should've received the first 4 or so by now, leaving only 3 at the most in the SAA fleet.

B757s:
These aircraft wouldn't fit into SAA's new shuttle philosophy - too much capacity for regular-interval flights.
