Have South African Airlines repainted all their aircraft in the new coulours yet. I presumed they hadn't done a CX when it comes to repainting a fleet but I was reading somwhere that some had only just been repainted so I'm wondering if there are any still in the old livery.

Last time at JNB (about two months ago) I saw a two 732's and one A300 in old colours. This might have changed by now, however. I am dropping my sister at JNB on Thursday and will keep a look out for any old colours. BTW it's strange to see how really old the planes in old SAA colours look when compared to their repainted counterparts!

As a South African, I should have a quick answer for you but I don't. Not all of SAA's fleet come to Cape Town, but I saw an A300
in old colours a few days ago and I think that there are still a few 737-200's in old colours and one or two 747 classics as well.
However, the entire fleet should be in new colours by March 2000. I live and work under the flight path of most aircraft coming in to Cape Town International and will pay more attention to the colour schemes. Personally I don't much like SAA's new paint.
It's........well .......too white!........ and the "SOUTH AFRICAN" script looks like it has been taken straight off the front page of a newspaper!
