As I think the fluctuating prices have to do with speculation in the oil markets, do keep tabs on the flights, as they could pop down a couple hundred again. It's not like they are selling out the October flights (seat selection on Delta's flt 200 ATL TO JNB is still quite open)

Glad that you got your nonstop seats on Delta-you will be glad that you didn't go through the BS of the stopover of Dakar!
For those of you that think that you should go through LHR,keep in mind that anytime you depart Heathrow there is a massive departure tax fee if you stopover there.
If you can afford the sleeper flat beds in BE on the Delta ATL-JNB the 17 hours will go quickly!

A little off-subject,maybe, but I seem to remember that if you
stop in Dakar at all, an extra inoculation is needed by the
South Africans to enter their country. I read that this is true even if you do not leave your plane. Be sure to look into it. I don't remember any more details.
