I would say your trip is definitely not happening. Given the issues with SAA I would go with the chargeback. It's unclear if Airlink will be able to get you a voucher for their own ticket stock.

Nothing to do with SAA problems. No water in Vic Falls and tourism numbers down. The JNB-VFA flight has been downgraded from usual A330 to A319/320.

Company acceptance flight. The registrations ZS-SDC/D/E/F were previously used for the A300's back in the back, hence the pictures in the database (some nice nostalgia there).

Yes, it's been struggling for a while. Add recent events in HKG which have caused many other airlines to cut capacity and the nail was in the coffin.

Yes, that is correct. One shouldn't see alliances as the only partnerships airlines have. Many airlines even have partnerships with members of opposition alliances.

You can accrue miles flying on Emirates on SAA Voyager, but not on United Mileage Plus. Emirates partner with SAA, but not United.

Both the B77L and B789 can do it. Both will have payload restrictions, particularly on the westbound leg. The B789's restrictions will be more severe than the B77L.

It's doable with B77L and likely also B789. Payload would be limited a little, but certainly viable. The route is marginally shorter than DL's ATL-JNB-ATL.
