Avi, apparently the Kulula flight experienced some intense turbulence but nothing to write home about - but if you were Mr Prins then they were definitely going to crash and burn and die a horrible death.

Heard nothing on the wires about the Airlink issue though.

The only ERJ scheduled at PZB this morning was a E135 leaving to CPT as SA8721 at 0700, haven't been able to find a status for that flight.

That said the new E190 ZS-YAA was doing training at PZB yesterday, so maybe it was just some training flight?

Was that caused by CAT?
