Virgin Atlantic – $679: Washington D.C. – Johannesburg, South Africa. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A good sale to Johannesburg.

Flights within South Africa can be pretty cheap with low cost carriers such as Mango (part of South African Airways) or Kulula (part of Comair, a British Airways affiliate). We flew Kulula between Johannesburg and Cape Town last year for about $150 roundtrip and it perfectly fine for such a short trip.

ITA will price this at $699, but if you buy it on Priceline, it will be $679.
