Visit Johannesburg. Delta is putting it on sale from everywhere but Atlanta! The amazing thing is its even available from Delta hubs (Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis, Salt Lake)
Here’s what we found from our coverage cities:
- Charlotte [CLT] – $978
- Cincinnati [CIN] – $978
- Detroit [DTW] – $978
- Denver [DEN] – $978
- Houston [IAH] – $940
- Kansas City [MCI] – $978
- Memphis [MEM] – $973
- Minneapolis [MSP] – $978
- Orlando [MCO] – $978
- Salt Lake City [SLC] – $1,028
- San Diego [SAN] – $1,028
Atlanta got shafted — Delta has no need to discount from Atlanta because its nonstop. (But you can start in Augusta – AGS for $978.) Base on the above, if you are in a smaller city, it will likely work.
