Came across another one for months of January and February:

From LAX - JNB :
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear...=STAR_ALLIANCE

From ORD - JNB :
https://www.google.com/flights/#sear...=STAR_ALLIANCE

LAX - JNB nets about 23,000 miles for the roundtrip and ORD - JNB nets about 20,000 miles for the round trip.

Great price, flew this route spring 2017 (screenshot from late 2016).
Booked it at a slightly higher price in Q fare bucket that gave me 100% with TK M&S. Make sure to check actual booking class against earnings on your own FFP before committing to ~24 butt-in-seat hours and a layover in IST each way.

TK booking classes O and M should net 100% of miles on UA. Quite often the price increase over the promotional fare bucket is low enough for this to make sense.

Looks like you might get some good deals towards the end of January/early February.

In particular, I found several fares with LH/LX/UA for for between $700-$900 USD which should get you 100% PQM regardless of fare class:

From LAX:

From ORD:

From IAD (for $768 USD):

$700-ish to pretty much your antipode is amazing.

Transfer in ZRH is supposed to be famously smooth too.
