Which is the best airline to speak to - booking a DONE4 ex JNB?

I have tried calling the different airlines, some don't know the rules ala BA and QF - so I phone back and then get people who know the rules but the taxes seem much higher.

I then go to the One World booking tool which prices the ticket much cheaper, but I can't get in a surface sector to get to my final flight.

Who is the best airline/person to phone?

Many people here have it ticketed through the AA GSA in South Africa:

Why not put your proposed itinerary here and let's see why you can't get the online tool to do what you want?

Do you mean taxes or taxes and surcharges ?
Taxes should be the same for all carriers on the same route.
Surcharges vary with carrier. QF & BA have high fuel surcharges
Have not you done *ONE* ex RSA before?
