Booking SAA flights via Lufthansa

I need to travel to Johannesburg in a couple of weeks for a short trip. Normally I fly direct with BA (or VS) from LHR, but decided I wanted to try out SAA A340-600 and LH 747-8.

Both Google and Skyscanner show options via FRA which include an SAA flight from FRA > JNB, yet when I link to LH website it says flights are not available.

How come the search sites find it but the LH site doesnt show it?

Try momondo or google flights & use a OTA.

Online travel agent, ie Expedia.

LH website has all kinds of issues. Momondo is often better at passing you over to book IME
