I don’t know what to choose specifically. that is, back in the day before lock down, United did KEWR - FACT (Capetown) with a B789. what interests me about this route is that it traverses almost the entirety of the Atlantic, unlike its sister route (JFK - Johannesburg FOAR) which crosses Africa earlier. So I know I want to do New York area - Cape Town South Africa.
this is what bugs me: obviously now there are no direct flights from North america to Africa (or at least south africa), but I really want to do the NY - FACT route, but with the a359 (not 789). I’ve read that South African Airways was planning to use an a359 for JFK - FOAR, but not to Cape Town, so JFK - FACT would not be any bit realistic if I were to use an a359.
So this is choice for me: UAL b789 KEWR - FACT (realistic)
SAA a359 KJFK - FACT (not realistic)
what would you choose? lol
- United B789 KEWR - FACT (realistic)
- South African a359 KJFK - FACT (not realistic)
