My return flight, Johannesburg to Newark on September 14th was cancelled. Apparently they only plan on flying that route every other day. My outgoing flight for the 4th was still good.

I don't know when this change is going into affect or if the outgoing flights are also affected. If you have reservations with United you may wish to see if they are still good.

Out travel agent informed me on Friday that our return flight was cancelled due to United only operating 5 return flights per week or something along those lines. Originally we flew out on a Thursday but moved it to the next day. Extra day in Africa....don't threaten me with a good time.

Yep, told the outfitter that he was stuck with me for an extra day.

It could turn into trouble for some if the outfitter has another group coming in when you are suppose to be leaving.

There are some lovely and hospitable African women to shack up with during the short delays

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
