Los Angeles to JNB via Dubai on Emirates Airways - anyone done this route?

Jump to last reply

I would sure love to take the good old Delta flight that stops in Atlanta, but the prices for our September trip are still uncomfortably high.

If it saves enough money, we are considering the Emirates flight. It lays over in Dubai for 14 hours, enough time for a night in a hotel, and coming home the layover is about 3 hours. But, the time in the air is 4 hours longer than the Delta flights. The timing works for us, so I am just curious to see if anyone has any comments about this routing and/or Emirates, which seems to be a very nice airline.

Other flights that may go through London or Europe don't work for us, they get into JNB early in the morning and I don't want that, the Delta and Emirate flights arrive in the late afternoon so we can sleep in a JNB hotel.
