Getting to Brazzaville from Atlanta

I have been researching but so far I'm not liking what I find:

To get from Atlanta to Brazzville to visit my DD (who'll be working there soon) looks like I have to connect thru Europe. Oh, please.

Any suggestions on getting there without the long detour?

These airlines fly to Brazzaville. From Atlanta, going via Paris may be the quickest route.

Air France (Paris-Charles de Gaulle)
Air Mauritanie (Nouakchott)
Bravo Air Congo operated by Bravo Airlines (Paris-Charles de Gaulle)
Cameroon Airlines (Douala)
Ethiopian Airlines (Addis Ababa)
Hewa Bora Airways (Douala, Kinshasa)
Kenya Airways (Nairobi)
Royal Air Maroc (Casablanca, Douala)
Emirates (Dubai)

Or you can fly on SAA to Kinshasha, and work with gocongo.com to arrange safe transport across the river.

So there's no hope of skipping Europe and having a more direct flight??

You will need to make a connection, but not necessarily in Europe. You could fly these longer routes:

Atlanta -> Washington -> Addis -> Brazzaville

Atlanta -> JFK -> Casablanca -> Brazzaville

Atlanta -> JFK -> Dubai -> Brazzaville

Atlanta -> Johannesburg -> Kinshasha and transfer by boat to Brazzaville, right across the river from Kinshasha (this may be the quickest, but Kinshasha has a poor safety reputation)

But the only one-stop is via Paris.

I don't think Emirates flies that route, though....

Emirates do not fly to Brazzaville.
Fly ATL to Johannesburg and then Interair to BZV ( I don't know how up to date Interair is as their website says 2006 (?) - their email is [email protected] ) or perhaps re-post asking if anyone in SA knows if Interair still flying the route.
