KLM – $921: Washington D.C. – Cape Town, South Africa. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A good sale to Cape Town. South African and Ethiopian has this for cheaper – but why are we featuring this over them? KLM is a single connection via Amsterdam whereas South African and Ethiopian are both double connections. We thinking the extra $70 bucks compared to South African is worth to save on the connection.

    First off, I love the site. That said, I wish you guys would post some of your other hidden deals! I wouldn’t normally click a KLM fare unless it’s a total blow away fare.

    It’s not that I won’t fly Skyteam, but I don’t want to, so saving $70 AND getting miles/segments towards me 2016 earning on Star Alliance does make it worth the double connection for me. I would’ve clicked on it for Ethiopian and SAA but you kinda buried that. 2 good deals deserve 2 posts 🙂
