Data source is "Estimations", so probably a FR24 glitch

Flightaware shows it en route to GRU, so this is not an MH370 repeat

Somehow they're not using the tailwinds to the south like the Quantas pilots always do. Probably still have to discover these winds...

If you don't gear up your brain before takeoff, you'll probably gear up your airplane on landing.

I'm sure many people are going to enjoy the Perth and OR Tambo direct flights.

To my best knowledge, it is still SAA V1. SAA V2 never materialized.

I think a lot of people refer to it as V2 meaning post business rescue, and where 100s of people lost their jobs based on their ethnicity.

Ah ok, that makes sense. I always thought the semi-privatized version of SAA was SAA V2, which obviously didn't materialize.
