Frankly, the time has come for the SA Govt to either completely privatise SA, and assume the debt on the books, or, let it die. Until this happens, it will continue to be a national embarrassment, and a complete shell of its former glory. Now, if said government managed to turn SA from a proud mone...

Then I see the A320 remaining if they can not make it as capable so the A320 family will be: A320.5 A321 A322 Realistically I don't see them do...
