South African Airways Airbus A300/Boeing 767 routes

Hello everybody,

On which routes did SAA send their A300 and the 767?
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.

I remember as a kid craning my neck while sitting in the back of the car while we went past PE airport, to see if I could see the tips of the tails of the SAA 737s that were parked on the apron. When the A300 was it town, it stood so tall that the cockpit windows were clear of the control tower building, which I only presumed to have given the pilots an unobstructed view of the Victoria Park school sports fields across the road.
