Bankrupt SA Airline’s problems can only be solved by launching a targeted restructuring process, which will inevitably lead to the layoff of hundreds of staff. SAA has already been accused several times of having, like Eskom, hopelessly too many staff for the volume of work that needs to be done.

The struggling entity has announced that restructuring is due to begin soon, which could result in the cancellation of nearly 1,000 jobs.

The airline industry is at fault, and Moody’s recent downgrading of SA’s economic position has forced the ANC to begin measures to prevent further downgrades. One of the weakest entities in the state is the SAA, which, despite repeated lifebuoys, continued to act as if money was falling out of the sky.

However, observers believe the ANC regime should also act against Eskom, which is hopelessly overpopulated with untrained workers and who are receiving high salaries.

The SAA currently has more than 5,000 workers, and experts believe it should be no more than 3,500.
