That's a really good deal for a circle Atlantic of sorts. The complete routing on the return is JNB-MAD-BOG-MIA, IB metal for the first two segments and AA for the last one. It's also possible to do JNB-LHR-MAD on BA metal but this is more since I think it exceeds MPM. Only the MAD-BOG segment needs to have the LA code on it. There are also some odd things that can be done, like routing through NYC and getting EWR-GRU on UA on the outbound or either LH or LX metal to Europe for the return. The more expensive fare definitely has more tricks in it.
Is that a JNB-MIA fare or MIA-JNB fare? If you start in MIA, what is the routing through MAD?
