Pricing is as follows:

On some dates, Delta will be cheaper, but Delta at the moment does not send its TRUE premium economy product to Johannesburg. Instead, just a coach seat with 2 or so extra inches of legroom.

(We are testing Premium Economy / Business Class / First Class deals the next few weeks to sort out some workflow and algorithms issues, we will see how it goes and whether to make this a regular feature – for Business Class / First Class deals.)
