Only if all people flying are vexed.

vexed

adjective
1.
(of a problem or issue) difficult and much debated; problematic.
"the vexed question of how much money the government is going to spend"

2.
annoyed, frustrated, or worried.
"I'm very vexed with you!"

Why do your fellow fliers have to be annoyed, frustrated or worried or otherwise problematic?

Yes, if fares are competitive that day.
This, I am not rich enough to be choosy at the moment. If it is within R50 per ticker or R100 total, I might be principled. Luckily, I dont fly at all at the moment, nor do I see that changing in the near future.

No, I will not fly with them again. Too dangerous.

They fired all their senior and experienced pilots in order to drive their agenda of promoting BEE. There is no way that I will get in an aircraft with the pilot in control having flown 200 hours. I prefer the 7 000 to 30 000 hour pilots the SAA had in the past.
Thanks for the heads up. Is it is possible to be a commercial pilot with such little hours?

I am retired and will therefore choose the best price on the day.
