Nationwide will be starting services between Johannesburg and London Gatwick on the 28th of November, using a leased 767-300. (Take a look @ www.flynationwide.co.za/press_releases.html for more info).
Does anyone know who they are leasing the aircraft from? I've never been on a 767, but it doesn't look like the best place to be for an 11-hour flight. I travel between SA and the UK fairly often and have grown quite fond of SAA's 747-400s (the dodgy 200s & 300s are a different story...glad these are being retired finally).
How well do you think Nationwide will do on this route? It will be the only non-stop service from Gatwick to JNB, but will people really want to try a "new" airline over the establishment: SA / BA / VS?
