The Purple shall rule! Some feedback from readers on the taxis' proposed Santaco Airline:

"No, No,No that a bad idea, Santago needs to sort out the taxi industry first.They need to  be good on the surface before we can trust them on air....... " says Smi.

Nyathi says "Last airline I will ever fly on - Anything to do with the Taxi Associations or Taxi's, Never !!!  I would rather pay double and fly with a carrier I can trust."

Ashley says "JP Training Solutions is proud to be associated  with such a dinamic organizion such as SANTACO. We wish you well for all your future plans and we as South Africans will surely benifit from this venture."

Jane says "as long as they promise us that there won't be any airspace wars, i'll support them!"

William wrote: "Its not only about the taxi drivers employed by the organisation. Are the leaders /managers in Santaco professional enough to Corporate governance.  Are we not going to witness 'strikes',' demostrations', and may be buerning of tyres at airports.  We have an interesting history to reflect here.  Can someone please speak to Golden Arrow and Metrorail for recomendations. I hope the planes will have more than enough parachutes. "
