So being a big of a control freak, when I have a trip planned, I monitor airfares on Orbitz quite closely every so often. Well yesterday I had a moment while waiting for my son's football practice to be finished to look up airfares. I have for the last month been a bit lax keeping track of airfares for my trip next May to HartzView as I've been moving, so much to my delight I found some very good deals. While I will need to make the trek over to L.A. again, and I do loathe that airport, it's difficult to argue with $1300 round trip LAX to JNB. While I found the deals on Orbitz, I called Lori at Travel Express to make the booking. This will be my third trip to RSA and third different route. My younger boy and I will fly on British Airways from L.A. to London Heathrow. We will have a reasonable layover of 3 hours and be back on our way to JNB arriving at 7:10am which should be plenty of time to catch the earlier connection. Route back will be the same but a slightly shorter layover. So if you've got a trip planned leaving before June next year, you may want to check airfares now.
