A 130% pay rise! In todays climate, they must be mental! I work in the industry and will have a 100% wage decrease next week. Get real idiots!

Well, I can imagine that they won't settle for 13% if the inflation alone was 17.8% in one month..but 130% is..wow..just crazy.

Got caught up in the mess when I got to the airport at 0330 hrs to find the 763 to NBO was not going anywhere.

Sad picture of stranded pax all over the terminal. Thankfully, I was able to get a seat on SA and get out of there

I hope it is resolved coz lots of people are being inconvenienced
