South African has recently changed their routes a bit and now flies from Washington D.C. to Johannesburg (JNB) via Accra, Dakar and Lagos.
The plane just sits on the tarmac and refuels – there is no need to leave your seat.
This direct flight is now available for $727 – sample dates are February 20 – March 10. You may be able to finesse a stopover along the way in Accra and Dakar.
I had a great time in Johannesburg in February – here are my Things to do in Johannesburg during a layover. But there is no need to stop there – Mauritius is just 10,000 Avios away and Cape Town just a cheap $99 flight.
The best part of this G fare is that it earns 100% on Ethiopian Airlines! That is >16,000 Shebamiles for the adventure to Africa.
