I'm guess these are not necessarily the most competent 88 pilots.

Negotiations have taken more than 10 months to conclude and SAA says the deal means it will retain 88 out of 268 remaining pilots.

Mango grounded

"Mango, which yesterday entered business rescue, has been grounded indefinitely ... due to outstanding payments owing to Air Traffic Navigation Services."

When you can't even pay THAT bill, you know things are in rough shape. What's next, not paying Eskom? (oh.... wait....)
