BA: AMS-CPT/JNB 1480 rt (360TP)

Available from May throughout much of the year. CE and CW.

https://www.google.co.uk/flights/#se...=ONEWORLD;eo=e

Can be run as an overnight turnaround if it's just a TP run (360TP 40x2, 140x2). Long weekends, longer stays also available.

From Heathrow this ticket is usually double that fare. If I had the money in the bank I'd be booking a November long weekend in the sun!

It's been at this price for the past year, no change at all, apart from occasional changes in currency rates. Good pointer for those unaware ^

Eh... I don't think that is correct at all. The last year, bar the occasional sale, the cheapest was always Portugal to CPT at 1600.... AMS always around 1750/1900. I am talking BA here.

I agree with henky - had my eye on cpt for last year or so, failed to go last year but looking for Nov/Dec this year.

Yes, that is correct. For a while OSL-CPT was 770 on QR.

This 1450 is a good price, not great. However, AMS is easy to position to and CPT is more rare than JNB.

I have five paid tickets (AMS-JNB) which are like this all booked between Aug and January at this price. Sorry I disagree with you. I fly this route a lot.
