Best Airline/Best Time to Buy Tickets

Who is the Best airline to take to SA in your opinion? It's an awfully long flight - who has the best seats, food etc in economy class?

Also what would be the best time to look for an airfare...right now it is a whopping $2,100 almost across the board to go from DFW to Joberg next summer. Sure hope that comes down some!!

1. Re: Best Airline/Best Time to Buy Tickets

Guess it depends if you want to fly West or East. West you could fly out of LAX via a number of Asian cities (Cathay via Hong Kong, Singapore via Singapore, Thai via Bangkok, Malaysian via Kuala Lumpur, also Qantas via Sydney). East you'd fly via London on British Airways or you could take South African direct from New York (I assume SAA flies from NYC?). Emirates could also be a consideration from NYC via Dubai.

It would seem that the Asian airlines offer a better complete package so you'd just have to decide whether you fly a bit longer via Asia (stopping over to see some sights) or shorter with a European airline.
