South African Airways At GIG (question)

Mon Jun 11, 2012 4:01 am

Can anyone enlighten me as to when South African Airways ceased operations at GIG? Was it at the same time that GRU service began?
Thanks for any assistance.

Yes! In early 90's if I'm not wrong.

Too bad, for a long time GIG was the gateway to JFK for SAA, I remember flying a 707-300 back in summer 1970, JFK-GIG-JNB and return. It was quite elegant even in Y during that time. Any chance a JNB-GIG-LAX flight would work?
