200 cheaper starting from FRA or DUS - if you are fine with a LUX start, I'd recommend cancelling under the 24hr rule and rebooking from DUS and pocketing the 200 saving - will buy a few meals/bottles of wine in SA!

I have to be in LUX for a few days prior to the 25th until a couple hours before the last BA flight to LHR, trains to FRA/DUS take 4 hours
Good catch though so I'll change it to an open jaw ending in FRA for $120 worth of SA wine. ^

$120 of SA wine can buy a case of really good stuff ;-)

Starting from OPO should be even lower (1363 GBP), although this is apparently not bookable online: https://goo.gl/flights/Yokk

I have been trying to also price this out to CPT, but can't get it below 1800.
Anybody else any idea?

JNB-CPT is easy to grab separately using cash or Avios on Comair.

I am headed to CPT so I just shelled out 13500 avios for a RT.

Yes true, very easy. Only annoying thing is that BA won't check through baggage anymore.

But you have to claim bags and recheck at JNB anyway (to clear customs at first point of entry into SA); and I would imagine that Comair would still through-check on the return [caveat - I never check bags so don't *know*]

Via AMS I found prices ~1495 (e.g. 16/3-24/3)
