The Bottom Line: "We are still somewhat cautious as to the state of the global and South African economic circumstances, and expect consumers to remain under pressure for the foreseeable future. While there is much talk about the growth of aviation in Africa, this is off a very small base, and we will therefore continue to take a pragmatic approach to our expansion on the continent."
