The Purple shall rule! "My father is 82 and has in the past often flown with Velvet Sky as he commutes between my brother in Cape Town and myself in Johannesburg.  He has had nothing but praise for them,  has never had a delayed flight and always pleasant flight crew. As the saying goes "kick a dog when it is down", it amazes me that Velvet Sky were good enough when the flights were cheap, but now they have problems everybody is putting in the boot to them." Kerry

The Bottom Line: "New listings on the JSE are drying up as companies weigh the possibility of government takeovers & transaction tax changes deterring investment...No new companies had listed shares this year after the exchange recorded 16 last year." Nicky Newton-King, as reported in yesterday's Business Day
