RTW via Southern Ocean Crossings

Doing some RTW research. Which airlines (ow or other) fly what service frequencies between Australasia and Southern Africa, Southern Africa and South America (Rio and south), and South America and Australasia. And what is the southernmost latitude reached by commercial airplane service?

Qantas fly JNB - SYD
SAA fly JNB - PER - SYD

I don't think there are any flights from South Africa to South America

SA flies GRU-JNB and JNB-PER
MH flies KUL-JNB-CPT-EZE
QF flies JNB-SYD and SYD-AKL-EZE

The southernmost commercial flights are probably to Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, 54.50 south latitude.

Thanks for filling in all the holes, ow or not (and most are ow!)

A trivia note: re the southernmost latitude, just did a globe tracing and determined that the EZE-SYD service should hit about 60 degrees south latitude, so that probably wins the contest.

QANTAS does not fly to PPT but codeshares on Polynesian Airlines or Air Tahiti Nui out of AKL. A problem if you're trying to use a oneworld fare.

I think MH is killing the route to EZE.
