If you’re not quite sure about the reasons behind the SAA strike that’s trending online, here are five facts summarising the entire situation:

1. About 1300, this is about 85 percent of SAA’s cabin crew – have downed tools to try and force SAA to increase their meal allowance from R130 to R170, which they claim has not been reviewed for six years.

2. The South African Cabin Crew Association (SACCA) Secretary General Mpho Moikangoa said the union would embark on a strike on Wednesday over meal allowances which had remained stagnant for the past six years.

3. South African Airways (SAA) striking cabin crew on Wednesday gathered outside the airline’s headquarters in Kempton Park
