Air Madagascar has changed it scheduled flights to Johannesburg.

56 South Africans were deported after landing in Lagos on SAA flight 061, in a tit-for-tat move by the Nigerian authorities.

Nigeria is furious that South Africa had deported 125 Nigerians who arrived on an Arik Air flight last Friday, who it appears had false yellow fever documentation.

Johannesburg to Lagos flights are getting quite exciting, as relationships between Nigeria & SA sour.

In an escalation of the issue, a Nigerian Minister has threatened to investigate South African companies operating in Nigeria.

Great news for those wanting to fly BA to London. From end March they're adding 3 flights per week to the existing double-daily JNB-LHR flight route.

Air Mauritius has indicated that it will introduce double-daily flights between Joburg & Mauritius during peak holiday season, to compensate for the loss of flights between Durban & Mauritius.

The Purple shall rule! Message left on our Kulula page: "There is NOTHING funny about flying. I have heard all the smart comments and jokes from airline staff in the USA and Australia over the last 20 years and thank goodness they have stopped it. It is so old hat and not at all funny. The staff are there to help in an emergency not to make jokes or serve food. If people cannot go without food and drinks for one hour they shouldn't fly. "

The Bottom Line: Another question in the ANC discussion document on economic transformation is: "Why economic growth sometimes is associated with increased income inequality?"

Once you understand that it is those people with skills that are adding value far in excess of those people without skills, you'll also understand that the root cause of income inequality is education inequality. The children who win the birth-lottery are those with parents who give them time, love and guidance up to the impressionable age of 7; encourage and assist them in primary & high school, and help them to get a tertiary education.

To reduce education inequality the most important thing to focus on is that children get the nurturing they need up to the age of 7, and that they have the opportunities & encouragement (through great teachers) to excel in primary & high school, as well as the opportunity to attend tertiary studies.
