Fare Alert Air France Miami–South Africa $460 round trip

This is another fare alert for an incredible deal from Miami to Johannesburg, South Africa at $459.66 round trip with Air France tickets flying Virgin Atlantic and Air France. The catch is I had to call in and have the Delta/Airfrance representative feed in the flights I found on Google Flights for Virgin Atlantic to London, then Air France London-Paris-Johannesburg. The representative confirmed the $459.66 round trip ticket price and there is a $25 phone charge, making Miami – JNB, South Africa ticket $484.66 all-in round trip. This fare was checked by phone at 7:30am Pacific time July 2.

Air France phone reservation: 1-800-237-2747.

I only see departure dates for Oct 31 and Nov 1 with the $460 round trip fare.

  • Oct 31 departure and return on Nov 7-10, Nov 15-17, Nov 20.
  • Nov 1 departure and return on Nov 10 or Nov 21.

There are many more dates with $618 round trip fares.

  • Oct 30 departure and return on Nov 17, 23, 24 = $618
  • Oct 26 departure and return on Nov 7-10 = $617.
  • I found fares around $620 round trip for most departure dates from late October through November.

Basically plug and chug different dates on Google Flights to see what turns up for October and November itineraries.
