Intersting to note that the heat plays a major factor in day time flight over africa, never thought of that.
@rferguson – yes that’s what i was thinking – shuttle service, say between JNB-CPT maybe?
But then as openfly mentioned, if its cheaper for BA (in this example) then planes at JNB during the day seems a sensible option.
But then i see a lot of planes in JNB – including twin A380’s of Air France and LH.
But then reading another forum, i think its cheaper for the A380’s to be grounded during the day than doing short hops as i read that A380s not built for it (higher maintenance charges, landing gear not designed for continuous landings and take offs, etc).
