How does an American Airlines Johannesburg Direct Flight Sound?
Several of my friends have traveled to South Africa – Cape Town or Johannesburg – and it seems that more times than not they have mentioned about how difficult it is to get there without a lot of time-consuming connections. South African Airlines does have direct flights from JFK and IAD and is a member of StarAlliance. With US Airways having left Star Alliance, unless you happen to have some United (or other StarAlliance) miles sitting around, the only other options require connections and/or layovers.
Now it seems that American Airlines Executives are eager to begin working towards establishing non-stop flights to Johannesburg.
