• Not having a non stop from SYD to JNB is a real blow to Africa bound travellers as the flight via PER is a major diversion from the Southern circle route adding close to 4 hours to the trip. Also having an A330 on the route is a major downgrade. It appears unlikely that SAA in its current state ...
