South African Airways tips/points/miles

Jump to last reply

We'd like to upgrade to business class for the flight from the States to S. Africa on SAA. We have millions of points and miles on just about every airline...EXCEPT South African Airways.

I know they partner with Delta, but Delta miles cannot be used to upgrade. Does anyone have any tips or tidbits of information that would be helpful?

We'd really like to fly SAA since they have a direct flight from NY/Atlanta, and from there we'll have to hop yet another flight to Seychelles. Hubs cannot sleep on planes w/o his CPAP, so the shorter the travel time the better.
