Meanwhile, SAA had issued a statement to the contrary earlier on Monday evening, claiming that operations continue as normal.
"SAA remains committed to transparently communicating with all stakeholders, including customers, about any material or significant operational changes", the statement reads.
This comes after talks on Sunday over the bailout plan for the state carrier ended with no solution.
Government is scrambling to work out how they can provide the R2 billion it promised when SAA entered business rescue last month.
It's reported that the cash-strapped national carrier could be forced into insolvency if Treasury does not provide the funding.
