Bucksnet, absolutely right. SN has been struggling on a few routes, and their bread and butter routes to Burundi, Rwanda, and Congo are now being served by a variety of airlines cutting into their loads, and lets face it, SN is fine point to point, but their onward connections are nothing compared to the might of KL in AMS, AF in CDG/ORY, TK in IST, and LH in FRA, so the more encroachment on their traditional areas, the more likely they will have poor results. SN has really improved their on board offering though, so it would be a shame if they somehow were displaced.
TK is the one that amazes me, even flying into Mogadishu. Hopefully the crew dont overnight there :-), of course not much different from Taksim these days, maybe even calmer.
