***** CAUTION *****This route is particularly troublesome !This is not to discourage your travel to JNB - but recognize the obstacles you are going to encounter !It almost is always (emphasis on ALWAYS) embargoed and load-opt restricted due to the length of the flight (fuel problem) and the variable of cargo and mail havingmore priority than NRSA (buddy passes being at the very bottom of the food chain).ZED tickets are Space Available and subject to the same restrictions.For the employee or retiree traveling this route buy the Fly For Less Discount ticket or go to Delta.com and check as far in advance as your plans permit for gettingthe best break on a revenue ticket.-OR- look at breaking up the flight into 2 segments i.e. JFK(ATL-MSP) AMS - AMS to JNB (but even this could be a problem too)!Study this one very carefully and plan alternatives to the alternatives - plan to spend maybe a couple of days trying the odds !
