Since SAX is not exactly SAA and is taking a different approach to growth, best to focus things specifically on it in one thread.
(Background information: I suggested in the KSIA thread the possibility of SAX doing DUR-HRE-LUN at some point.)Why if they offering Durbs to Lusaka direct wld they change it to harare stop over?
I think it is more a question of bigger planes so the number of seats offered to every destination may have increased. The Q400 carries 74 passengers at speeds of 675km/h compared to the model 300 it replaced that could only carry 500 passengers at a maximum speed of 500km/h. The same is true about the 75 seater Embraer jets that will replace the Canadair Jets that carried only 50.Do SAX have fewer planes in the fleet now with the reduced flights to destinations in SA? seem to also be focussing more on regional endevours now than local?
Hate it when high-profile people in the industry or the journalists then make such small mistakes. Can't say 'operate twice daily' , gives the impression there is two flights both ways on those days...while in fact it's one flight both ways, thus a daily return flight. The 4th added flight is also on Fridays, not Saturdays.The flights will operate twice daily on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, with additional flights to be launched soon.
