CAPE TOWN- Passengers booked to travel with South African Airways (SAA) are being advised that the airline has been served with a notice of an intended strike by its cabin crew.

While negotiations are underway and the airline states it is “doing everything possible to find common ground and/or a settlement on matters”, it is also putting procedures in place “to support any service disruptions”.
