flymango.com or not

this low cost airline's booking system was activated at midnight to tuesday [31.10.2006]. unfortunately, i have no idea what it looks like because since then, the site either has been hogged or it has dismally crashed. shame! to me sepacially. i was hoping to score a cheap-cheap return flight to the mother city at the end of november. alas.

apparently: "The demand has been unprecedented. By 2am there were already thousands of tickets sold, with bookings all the way through to May next year." [iol]

my, and perhaps other people's, concern is: if something that is at grass-root level as the website crashes, what about the main airline itself?

I really think it's all a marketing strategy and in else - yes nothing to close to helping poor people have a feel of air travelling feels like. Prices are going to shoot up at some point jus as it was with kulula. I reallyy don't see the cheap prices from kulula anymore and they is still no food on the planes. Bloody capitalists together with Mbeki!!!!
