The more Airlines, the more competition, the lower the ticket prices.

Too few causes an immediate monopoly. Look at the current ticket prices as evidence of that.
Maybe...but compete with our competitors, don't dilute your routes with multiple offerings from the same company.
It's British Airways & Kulula. But SAA have SAA, Mango & SA Express.

FTFY, and it was unsustainable when combined with their inefficiencies.

SA Express was never owned by SAA. Beside that, now that Global Aviation os investing in SAA, why would they keep Mango around? Lift and Mango compete on the same routes

I said they should get rid of Mango on page 1 already.

Are you confusing SA Express with SA Airlink again?

It's owned by government though. Within the same holding company that owns SAA and Mango.

In court papers, SA Express general manager for legal, Fikile Thabethe said the airline has received a letter from its shareholder (the government), indicating ‘an allocation of R164-million has been made for the 2020/2021 financial year’, which would ‘further address’ its ‘financial challenges’. It is unclear whether the funds will be allocated in the form of a government guarantee, or a capital injection.

Didn't know it was the same Holding company. So that makes it three out of three companies under the holding company that had to go into Business rescue.

As a general rule you should pay for anything high value with your cheque or credit card if at all possible. EFT payments offer you no protection whatsoever.

Maybe someone can check me on this, but I was under the belief that you can chargeback on your credit card, but not on a debit card?
