I visit relatives in S.A. approx. every two years and have used Dial a Flight over the past 10, with the exception of one with Emirates.
This time I thought I'd try using my Avios points. What a disaster that turned out! Despite having some 70,000 points, I required to connect from Scotland to Heathrow: Wait ten hours for my Joburg connection both out and back in and despite my accumulation of points, I would have been paying more for my passage from Glasgow via Heathrow than; Dial a Flight via KLM/Schipol would charge!!
The moral to the tale is, stick with our tried and trusted friends at Dial a Flight who can be relied upon to deliver a reasonable flight schedule at a competitive rate.
