South African Airways is South Africa's largest domestic and international airline. It's also known in Afrikaans as Suid-Afrikaanse Lugdiens ( SAL ), though this variation of the name no longer appears on the airline's livery.

SAA made use of a slump in the order books of the airplane makers ( Boeing and Airbus ). SAA was in a buyers market and with the passing of Swissair, which had A340-600's on the point of being delivered, made a massive effect on Airbus clinching the SAA deal.
