Can you tell me how to get, how to get to South Africa? There’s the painful way, flying coach on Delta on one of the longest flights from ATL-JNB and then there’s the right way HKG-JNB. Crazy to think that this route along with fifteen other segments was included in the AA Explorer Award when today it would cost 50,000 AAdvantage Miles for a one way.

After the fun in Lan Kwai Fong, it was time to sit back and enjoy top-end service highlighted by a lie-flat bed, an extensive IFE selection, and flight attendants that simultaneously leave you alone to relax while catering to your every need. It was time for Cathay Pacific’s 777 service to Johannesburg.

The bag had a terrible zipper but inside was the best lip balm, Jurlique which retails for $30.
