Wed Jun 27, 2007 12:10 pm

SAA was supposed to start flying to ORD in 2007 - whatever happened to that?

They opted not to fly the route a few months back.

Haha. I have to agree with that thought. I'd love to have an ORD-JNB. However, SAA seems to have recently posted another massive loss, so I think they're standing in front of their government, begging bowl in hand again. Until they figure out how to run a business, as opposed to trying to drive out the LCCs in South Africa, they're going to have trouble finding the money to expand.
If you cannot do the math, your opinion means squat!

I am inclined to agree but not because they aren't flying to ORD.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...
