I'm guessing the other three E190s will be ZS-YZA -> ZS-YZC, and the two remaining E195s from AerCap will be ZS-YDD and ZS-YDF

Would be great if Airlink expand their 70-80seater fleet, more flexibility...quite a gap otherwise between the 44-seat E-140 and 98-seat E-190.
Unless replacing the E-170s, which might be a bit older...none of the 3 repainted yet?

Nope, none of them as far as I can tell.

And yeah, they're pretty old - in fact, ZS-YBA is the oldest E-jet still flying, and was one of the prototype aircraft Embraer used to certify the E170.

(As an aside, considering the fact that LIFT has the oldest A320 still flying (ZS-GAL), and FlySafair has the second oldest 737-800 still flying (ZS-FGA), South Africa makes for an interesting aviation landscape for avgeeks who want to fly these old aircraft)

Nice. There is a repaint already available for MSFS ;)
In the battle between aeroplanes and the ground. The ground has yet to lose.

Aviation would be great, if it wouldn't be for passengers.
