Delta and KLM have put up another great sale for those based in the Northeast or Canada – a departure from wintry Toronto into summery Cape Town will cost you just US$692. This is about 25% less than the best offers we saw last year.
Cape Town is a (surprisingly) modern city with a fantastic landscape. I loved my time there two years ago (just before Christmas).
As usual, ITA Matrix is the best place to find fares for your dates.
The fare is a bit more expensive on KLM.com compared to Delta.com, but you can also book the fare on Cheapoair (which we recommend).
The mileage earning potential of many SkyTeam fares has become a bit of a mystery. This fare seems to book into V if you book it on KLM directly, which translates into 25% earning on Flying Blue. Keep in mind that Delta SkyMiles will switch to miles earned per dollar spend (based on status) next year.
