Johannesburg-Cape Town daily flights

Mango Airlines' recent decision to increase its number of flights between Johannesburg and Cape Town to 7 (on weekdays, 6 on weekends), is a good indication sign that the airline is enjoying a bit of success, and that party Kulula offered them when they start turning a profit could be just round the corner (if only they released seperate financial results to South African Airways, we could then see how well they're doing). With this announcement, it's a good time to check how many daily flights each of the commerical airlines operate between Johannesburg and Cape Town. On Fridays the airlines operate the following number of flights:

Mango has least Johannesburg-Cape Town flights

It turns out that even with the increase in the number of its flights, Mango Airlines still has the lowest number of daily flights from Johannesburg to Cape Town. South African Airways has by far the highest number of flights (19), with Kulula Airlines being the only other airline in double figures (10 flights). Nationwide, 1time and British Airways each have 9 daily flights from Johannesburg to Cape Town.

A slight peculiarity is that Mango Airlines advertises that its flights take 2 hours and 15 minutes, whereas every other airline advertises 2 hour 10 minute flights - any readers know the reason for this? (or is it just a state enterprise thing!)
