Why do you think that? I would think that without their domestic ops, they're dead in the water.
All their domestic routes are loss making. Supply outstrips demand and our domestic flights are short, no need for a full service airline. Those aircraft can be better used on regional flights where the yields are high and there is little or no competition. I can see SAA having a place in the sun if they have a strong regional network with a handful of profitable international flights.
