Holy bleep. That sucks. I knew they were struggling but I didn’t expect they’d go out like this, without support from the government…
RIP South African.

Me too man…

Me too actually. I can’t find anything except the government not aiding them any more, but nothing aside from that. Where did you find this?

French Magazines

This is not official news from what I see. They are planning on liquidating it which is different from bankruptcy

Also, I’m 2012 it started going up. More people starting flying with them

Rectified thanks

I said that they made no benefits since 2012

Benefits is a different story. You should change the title. They are in bankruptcy protection not bankruptcy

That title is much better
