The SAA board did not seem likely to support their chairman in parliament after it came to light that the airline suffered a loss of R4,683 billion in the last financial year.
The entire board had to appear before the parliament’s portfolio committee, but eventually only chairman Dudu Myeni arrived.
Apparently, independent aviation technicians have been approached to develop a turnaround strategy whereby SAA can earn R13,624 billion extra revenue over the next five years. However, it is not clear what the costs are for the services of the aviation technicians or consultants.
