Suid Afrikaanse Lugdiens: What the heck is that? How fast time travels!

For the benefit of Younger Flight Africa Blog readers:
South African Airways published some vintage photos of the old airline on their Facebook page. How fast time travels. I asked a young Kenyan friend whether he knew about Suid Afrikaanse Luigdens(SAL) and the answer I got was "what the heck is that"? Well it's this: South African Airways. Once upon time it was the airline of apartheid South Africa, the pariah airline of a pariah state. Many young Africans of course do not remember that country.

We know Nelson Mandela and the "Invictus" and the World Cup. Today SAL is South African Airways, a Star Alliance member expanding to newer and newer African destinations. Africa's most Awarded Airline.
