I thought this might warrant it's own thread instead of the giant JNB thread that already exists..

Not sure how anyone could survive this in coach, no overnights anywhere, it's all in the air with 13 daylight hours on the ground in JNB.. it prices out at $1810 on BA.com $3800 in Y+..

I can't seem to get the fare class off BA.com, but it lets me get as far as paying..

Clicking the flight number(s) should show you the fare class.

thanks so much! I am agressively chasing any OW miles (credited to AA)- so MIGHT brave myself to do this. Will keep you posted if I decide to book it

Great posting!

I don't think I could do this in coach.. I'm already doing GRU-LAX-LHR-JNB-LHR-LAX-GRU on Feb 14th.. All but 1 leg upgraded though..

This works for GRU as well.

I tried in OCT but the price is more than the double... I'd do it later.

On a serious note, this must have some health risks. That much flying in such a short aint normal.
