Interesting that you've got to go back to the same date for SAA & Mango, which is SAA's subsidiary.

SA Roadlink cheapest ever

At R299, SA Roadlink were offering the cheapest bus trip we've ever seen from Cape Town to Durban (we've noticed that SA Roadlink seem to drop their prices after they've had a prominent accident).

Photo-blog of Cape Town visit

V&A Waterfront in Cape TownLeslie's blog entry of her visit to Cape Town must be one of the most comprehensive photo-blogs of Cape Town that I've seen:

  • apparently Cape Town is like a mixture of New York, Italy, California, France, Chicago and more!

  • Went to the acquarium at the V&A Waterfront (which reminds her of Pier 39 at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco)

  • Saw the penguins at Simonstown

  • Went to Robben Island

Secrets of success for a low cost carrier - Ryanair turnaround times

"Some of the low-cost airlines, namely Ryanair, who like to turn a plane around in forty minutes flat, choose to refrain from such customer luxuries as delivering passengers to the terminal. Hence most Ryanair flights dump you on the tarmac and make you walk the rest of the way, shaving whole minutes off their turnaround time."
