Do they have any of their aircraft left? The A380s A350s were leased as far as I remember, but what about all the A320s and A330s?

Edit: A350

My concern would be around the airworthiness of whatever planes and air crews they do have left. Nothing will have been maintained during the two years they have been on the ground.

good luck with that, after all the ANC air wing needs to shuttle its fat cats around somehow.

Yeah no... not interested.

The entity has multiple tens of billions of debt owed to the SA taxpayer. Refund all that money first and then we'll talk about "trusting" you again.

They owned some of the A319/20s as well as the A340s, which have been sold. I think the A333s were leased, together with the A350s.

They have not been sitting for two years.
