ZS-SJW arrived winglets an’ all!
I think you mean ZS-SJV which does have winglets. ZS-SJW is one of Airlink's Embraer 145s

I think it 'was' one of Airlink's? I speak under correction but wasn't ZS-SJW written off?

Not that I know of - could well be though - the CAA register is far from up to date

Thanks Ray, I thought so!

Out of interest does the CAA allow recycling of a registration where a particular registration is tied to a hull loss? Sorry I'm on a bit of a tangent now ;)

Ha! Googled the reg of the plane I've just boarded because the crumpled photo on FR24 did not make sense, and found this thread.

ZS-SJW alive and well in the FlySafair fleet.

Not my favourite paint scheme - and those purple engines just look wrong.

I guess since Kulula has the striking, and instantly recognizable bright green, Mango the same with the orange... they felt the need to also go as bright and bold as possible, hence the bright pink. But I do agree, the livery is lacking somewhat.

Every time I see the tail I think the colour scheme has not been completed.

I did - but if you think they're pink that's OK with me.
