VS: bos-jnb, pe, $1407

Premium economy for a long way, but great earning for DL. Seems available leaving mid-week in April/May:

Books into K, should give ~26k MQM, ~22k RDM, and 4400 MQD.

I've been looking at this VS MIA-LHR-JNB PE fare for a while and just can't quite pull the trigger. Killer earning for DL and you can add a few extra days in London on the outbound for around $200 more if you book it as a multi-city on the VS website and play around with the dates a bit. I haven't checked if the same is true for the trip back.

I just have so little interest in Johannesburg that it is tough to justify that long in the air in PE. I'd probably just look for a follow up flight to Cape Town or Windhoek or even Mauritius and then it starts getting a bit up there in price, depending on dates. The AF PE fare from Toronto to CPT posted earlier for around $1100 is fairly intriguing as well and I could position to Toronto easily, but I'd much prefer VS to AF for that long of flight time since it is 787 with wifi on all four legs.

Just have to talk myself into it since I'd be going solo on this one. Anyone done this in PE that would recommend it at this price? The $5000 or so MQD on DL alone might be enough to justify it if the product is decent enough, I'm on pace to fall way short on MQD this year.

Disregard, forgot that partner MQDs were based on distance
