I am not sure if this has been answered before, but why do airlines opt to keep their planes in JNB all day?
From what I have seen, only LH have a day flight out of JNB during the day time.
Just to clarify I am talking about the Asian and European carriers, didn’t mean all flights from JNB.
Is it only for passengers convenience? I have travelled to JNB before and the flight timing is brilliant, I must say, but isn’t this a loss for the airline?
Even airlines that I think use their aircrafts efficiently (Turkish, as an example) prefer keeping their planes on the ground the entire day before returning in the evening\night.
