Cape Town unlike Johannesburg doesn’t go on sale often. This is a funny fare — if you buy it with all British Airways flight numbers, its over $1,200. A mix of British Airways and Iberia flight numbers, you save $200, but lose out on about 2,500 miles. $200 is worth way more than 2,500 miles.
Remember to collect those miles – this is enough for an off-peak one-way to Europe, South America, Caribbean, and United States. Miles = cheaper travel.
