I hope he's not beating his chest so early?

Anyway how much is a trip from SA to Nigeria? I feel he exaggerated.

If its free, why bore us with figures or is he expecting something in return? Concessions, future political position, patronage of the airline, compensation

He should state it categorically.

it may be free for passengers but not free for Alan, he paid for fuel, logistics and airport usage charges and the wicked SA immigration still held down half of the intended returnees.

its safe to say Nigerian lives dont matter in any part of the globe.

Fuckkk offff! Ingratitude. That's why some people don't achieve anything in life. Did he use ya father's money? The man didn't have to, but he did, and you are here spewing rubbish. That's why people find it difficult to assist Nigerians, they always have something to say.

You wouldn't have even reply the fool, he's very idiot and fool who doesn't know what is called appreciation.
God Almighty in heaven will continued to bless and protect the owner of Airpeace, and the plane in the name of the Father, and of the son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Cost of taxiing the jet, food, jet fuel, pilot and crew cost all these you left out in your analysis! Even if this guy used $1 to achieve this, it is so commendable!

The government of the day should be ashamed!

Wear and tear, charter flight logistics etc etc......

South Africa to Lagos is between N120k and N150k. For 200 passengers, it would have been N30 Million (N150k x 200) and the Airline would still have made a profit.

What did he spend N280M on?
This is the first batch. He is going to evacuate more

The flight left Nigeria empty. Money could have been made.
There were other logistics involved, not just air time.
What about the time the plane spent from monday to wednesday waiting for the rescheduled arrangements to be concluded? He'd have to pay for hangar time.
Now, consider how much he could have made with that single plane flying other routes rather than stay trapped for those three days...

280m is much, but I dont know the economics of his business and wouldn't doubt it.

It is not about what the CEO said but about his action! Those of you criticizing him, why didn't you guys contribute your pennies for the return of these guys, if the guy likes he can claim $280m, why didn't Nigerian government put aircraft to evacuate Nigerians? And if not for this man many people will still be in SA not knowing their fate and perhaps, will be dead in a few weeks time

He should state it categorically.

He’s a businessman man and serious business people must always calculate their financially based actions in terms of figures because there has to be a realistic budget for it.

Also,his ultimate goal is to make more profit and establish his airline as a leader in the aviation sector in the region,so this is more or less a CSR action with more business opportunities,goodwill,waivers and so on in sight.

Let him throw his figures around after all the government of the day receiving revenue from all sources including seizing of assets couldn’t even think of evacuating these stranded citizens.

May be the aircraft was in SA for so many days without being used waiting for the returnees.Meaning it should have fetched money if it was put to commercial use in Nigeria or other places

He's a businessman and saying all that is also a means to promote air peace. I'm a businessman and i know what it means to spend money and also look for strategies to recoup back with more interest. He's not trying to get accepted cos he has money already, he's selling his brand...
thesicilian:

The problem with most people is that they are so eager to please the world and get accepted into the bandwagon that they are afraid to speak their minds. It's a good thing that he volunteered to help evacuate our brothers in south Africa, without collecting money (as far as we know). And the beneficiaries were particularly grateful. If he's doing it out of the goodness of his heart and doesn't truly expect payment as he said I the beginning, why gloat about it when the job is not even completed? Except he's expecting some form of remuneration or acknowledgement from the government, in which case it will not be out of place to truly question his absurd claim of transporting less than 200 people from South Africa to Nigeria in just a trip with 280 million naira.

Let's learn to be objective instead of being sentimental all the time. If you buy me a 5000 naira lunch at a regular restaurant and while I'm still eating you're already telling the world that you spent over 20,000 naira to feel me, should I just remain quiet in the spirit of being grateful?
