They were flown during these periods and came from TAM and Bmi.
A330-223 - PT-MVA of TAM - 2003/04
A330-223 - PT-MVB of TAM - 2003/04
A330-243 - G-WWBD of Bmi - 2002/03
A330-243 - G-WWBB of Bmi - 2002/03
Why did SAA lease these aircraft from TAM and Bmi respectively. I know that SAA subleased the A330s from Bmi, was this also the case with TAM?
What routes were the A332s used on; I gather JNB-ZRH/MXP/LHR, but were there any more?

The Bmi (RR) powered A330 was painted in full SAA colours and looked amazing. The two TAM (PW) planes were painted in all white with only SAA titles.
Why was the lease taken out, and why didn't SAA opt for the A330?
Thanks in advance,
