Great deal, Lucky would be happy to see this!

Agree with the OP! Great airline and Rwanda is a great country.

Got to agree with the OP also. Rwanda is amazing. Rwanda air is excellent also and have flown them a few times.

Anyone know how to add in a stopover in KGL without the price bump? Cant be booked direct on Rawanda website as no multi stop option.

**Edit - figured it out on Rawanda website which is cheaper than multitrip on Kayak.

Also nice fares on KQ (Kenya Airways, Sky Team) & ET (Ethiopian, Star Alliance) for about $900 rt. Plenty of availability.

I'd like to try them. Good reviews.

Kenya Air can do 787's on all legs for about $950RT;sc=b;a=ET,KQ

Good find OP, thanks for sharing!

Sorry to nitpick but the airline is exactly RwandAir ;)

Apparently the Jnb-kgl legs are often operated with a brand new 738 with free wifi onboard!

Seems that Rwandair is one of those airlines where you'll either credit the miles on their program or you won't get any miles. AFAIK they have codeshares with SN, ET, SA and TK, but cooperation with said airlines apparently doesn't extend beyond codesharing.
