Congratulation to Ms Kesebone Maema on being appointed as an independent non-executive director of 1time. She is the Head of Corporate Communication at the IDC.

1time is trading at 18c per share on the JSE, close to record lows.

From 29 March 2012 1time Airline is increasing the frequency of its flights from Johannesburg to Zanzibar to 5 a week.

In a frightening incident for passengers, a JetBlue Captain lost it on a flight from New York to Las Vegas, and started to scream about a bomb, Iraq & Afghanistan. He was wrestled to the ground by passengers and the co-pilot landed the plane.

Precision Air flights from Johannesburg to Dar es Salaam are scheduled to leave JNB a little earlier, at 23h30, from 1 April 2012.

The Purple shall rule! "Velvet Sky is at least now answering their phones and telling the public that they will be flying again, however they cannot tell us by when and they tell me that our refunds are being processed but they cannot tell us when they will be refunded? Most of what we have been told so far has not been the truth and I do not believe that we are being told the truth now. Any organisation would be setting deadlines. Why has a refund application which was submitted at the end of February not been processed and refunded if the intention was good? Do not trust them." Stan

The Bottom Line: There's a new Exchange Traded Fund tracking the JSE's preference share index being launched today, and targetting those with a tax problem. It's called PreFex and is being managed by Grindrod Asset Management.
