Anmd yes, you can use the FCT both ways with your ticket,
That is true. I have been to Johannesburg a few times and I know that the lines at immigration can be long. I thought being in F at least gets me ahead of most in Y and C. But of course that's of no help if there are a lot of other flights arriving at the same time. I have also booked the meet and greet service including tarmac transfer with Bidvest. AFAIK they can get you through immigration faster. Something the LH PA apparently cannot do. I am quite unsure now if I should rather change the flight to SA333 which would give us around 2h30 to connect instead of 1h30. But then again I believe that the chances are not too bad that there are 2 seats in full fare C available on the later flight in case we miss our connection.
