Airline Apartheid

Mon May 22, 2006 9:54 am

Back in the dark days of South African and Rhodesian apartheid did either SAA or Air Rhodesia restrict seating for non-white passengers?

Don't mean to dredge up any badwill here, but I was kind of curious.

This came up once before on Airliners.net, so you might want to do a search.

Airports were designated as "international zones," where the typical apartheid regulations did not ostensibly apply.
