At last! The SAA board has decided to "relieve" Ngqula from his duties as CEO of SA. I'm so happy... cloudnine

High time they got rid of that blundering incompetent idiot. Gonna celebrate the stupid buffoon's departure tonight, believe you me! Only downside is that he's probably going to be given a very generous severance package, same as with that other twit Coleman Andrews.

Those were my exact same words, when I told my dad about Ncqula's "regrettable departure". We should consider a fan club, similar to the: "We miss you Schabir Shaik" one....  Wink

Hope they confirm Chris Smyth as CEO.

in the Airline of the year 2008 awards, Skytrax rated SA 11th of 15. Hope they can break into the top 10 with the new leadership.

That's now going to be playing in my mind all night long....

It's good news, but we've had the "foreigner" who battled, we've had the local, what's saying they not going to replace him with another prime candidate (read - fits the political profile, but is useless) and we'll be in the same situation in 3 years time having stufffed up the chance to profit from the World Cup.

High time this spectacular cock up of a CEO was given the axe. But RSA being RSA there is still the very real risk that his replacement will be as bad if not worse!! Choose wisely SA.

Can someone shed some light and background on Chris Smyth? I'm very curious about his skills and qualities.

My money is on Siza Mzimela. Now CEO of SA Express, very competent, was head of sales at SAA before leaving for Express. Likely with Smyth as President & COO or similar key role. The combination works for political requirements without moving someone in with little or no airline experience. Question is whether Mzimela would want to leave a comfortable position in a company she fixed to return to the ever-entertaining SAA.

He has been CFO of Virgin Nigeria and also the group financial director of Kenya Airways.

This barely scratches the surface of the stupid twat's idiocy at SAA but should give you a fairly good idea of the baboon's unsuitability for the post he was in: http://www.flyafrica.info/forums/showthread.php?t=17307. Most posts are in English, the ones in Afrikaans says very much the same.

Will the change the changing of the guard usher in a shift back to Boeing?

SAA needs an international heavyweighter. They should look abroad.

I think so we might see a mixed fleet which is fine in my opinion, i think once thay have sorted out the financial mess at home, i think we will see the 744 back on the LHR route and a bringing in of some new aircraft but we will wait and see. Nothing but anticipation for the road ahead.
