Did you mean Port Elizabeth (PLZ)? I'm not seeing SAA flying to Port Alfred on flysaa.com
What are your sample dates? And what site are you using to see the fare?

Definitely a great deal from NYC to SA

I know it is April fools day, but seriously all this does is waste people's time that are actually interested in this thread for positive travel means

I hate to think that I might miss something legitimate b/c people have too much time on their hands for something not even funny.

Port Alfred = AFD = April Fools Day

I don't think it's particularly funny either, but at least a moment's thought went into it.
