SAA – more of the same mistakes promises more of the same hardships – JAMES PERON

There is a humorous saying: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

It also describes government policy with regard to South African Airways. Every few months the same thing is done as was done before, even though the results from the last round were as unsuccessful as the results from the round before that.
