SAA lack­ing in busi­ness and mar­ket­ing skills

The Citizen (KZN) - - Letters -

The in­fra­struc­ture is there, but the air­line is lack­ing writes, Muller from Krugers­dorp.

SAA should ask a few ques­tions of them­selves about why Ethiopian Air­lines are fly­ing four times a day to SA and SAA is strug­gling to fly once in a week to Ethiopia and other nearby des­ti­na­tions?

Why are Ethiopia and Kenya fly­ing to China – a big busi­ness des­ti­na­tion – 11 times a week and SAA is strug­gling to fly once a day?

Why are Ethiopia and Kenya ticket prices much cheaper than SAA to the same des­ti­na­tion? Why do Ethiopia air­lines al­low trav­ellers to have 64kg per pas­sen­ger, ex­clud­ing carry on bag, and SAA not?

Re­ally, when it comes to busi­ness and mar­ket­ing strate­gies, SAA is fast asleep.

When it comes to air­port fa­cil­i­ties and in­fra­struc­ture, be­lieve me SA is much much bet­ter off than any coun­try in Africa and most prob­a­bly most of west­ern Europe.
