with all due respect. SAA posted an operating profit the last financial year, something most airlines have failed at. SAA, however, still suffers and will suffer in 2005 (the year, in which the hedge book will finally be closed in their balance sheets) from the hedging issue with respect to the purchase of the new Airbus fleet. I find it unfair to what extent SAA is criticized in South Africa at the moment. SAA's employees don't deserve it, as they helped SAA to make an operating profit. The people responsible for the currency speculation (and the hedging was nothing short of that) have gone now. Yes, SAA posted an enormous loss this year. But it was not an operating loss. I would rather see airlines with a smaller overall loss but an operating loss disappear from the scene than an airline like SAA who worked profitably.
). However, should the information be still the same as on the old site it should be a matter of highest concern to SAA to finally update the information (especially the product information as the new Business Class seat was nowhere featured on the old website).
