S. Africa's struggling airline returns to the skies

Cheering South African Airways employees sang and danced on Thursday (September 23) when the ailing airline took to the skies for the first time in almost a year.
The state-run SAA suspended all operations last September after running out of funds.
His longstanding financial troubles were exacerbated by the global health crisis.
The company left administration in April thanks to a massive government bailout.
Domestic flights from Johannesburg to Cape Town resumed on Thursday, to the delight of flight attendant Mapula Rametswi.
"It's the first time we've waited for this moment in so many months - I'm so excited, I'm over the moon. I'm really emotional that it would happen today. We never thought it would happen". "
A stripped-down international service will be launched next week, serving five African capitals.
The government has announced that it will sell a majority stake in SAA to a local consortium.
The planned sale of the 51 percent stake is part of efforts to end the repeated government bailouts to companies such as SAA and energy supplier Eskom, which have put a massive strain on South Africa's strained public finances.
