When last was Kulula was cheapest in our surveys?

We didn't realise that it had been so long since Kulula airline had been cheapest in our surveys, until we went and examined the stats. It was half a year ago, on the 21st July 2007 that Kulula last offered the cheapest flight (R288 for a flight from Cape Town to Durban). At this rate Kulula should next offer the cheapest flight in August 2008!

A story with a good ending

On the 11th August 2007 we wrote about how a certain Kenneth Notley had left a message on our Johannesburg to Durban flights page, asking us if we could help him get in touch with a pal of his that he was at school in George with (Kenneth had subsequently emigraged to New Zealand). This week we got an email from CN Notley and put him in touch with his pal Kenneth :)

Cape Town Airport under construction

The following photograph shows the construction which is busy at Cape Town International Airport (behind the wing of the South African Airways Airbus you can see a few cranes at work). The photo was taken in January 2008. In the foreground are several South African Airways ground crew, after a flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town.

International flight news

Michael O'Leary on whether he's an indispensable part of Ryanair?

A Life in Full Flight
"(I'm) just a big mouth on top of a fantastic group of people. I think it's shite to say that I'm indispensable. This company stands on its own. It may have needed me ten years ago. There is a much deeper, wider management team at this company now than me. I am sadly and depressingly replaceable and dispensable, and at some point in time in the future it will replace me. I suspect it wont be in the near-term future, although I don't doubt there are some people who would like to see me resign or fired." Michael O'Leary (the man in charge of Ryanair flights); as written in the book by Alan Ruddock: s "A Life in Full Flight: The story of the man who made Ryanair take off".
