It was with some alarm that I read the banner headline on your front page, SAA lands R3.5bn to stay afloat until June (February 19).

Could it be that passengers on the national carrier will be issued with a pair of oars each as they board SAA’s transoceanic aircraft? Or should that have read “aloft”? Just checking if I should pack a wet suit.
