Who flies 747 to South Africa

Wed Jul 05, 2017 2:49 am

I am planning a trip to South Africa end of this month and want to know which airline flies 747s to Jo'burg. I have never been on a 747 and want to be on one before they disappear

Thanks
I dream of owning a Zenithair 801

It might be helpful to say where it is you're planning to leave from, but on the off chance it's SYD then QF do! :p

Qantas is on SYD-JNB
BA use 747-400 on the 2nd daily flight to JNB, A380 on first one (will be double-daily A380 from October), also 744 to CPT
LH use 747-8i on FRA-JNB

Nothing from Scotland. BA fly from LHR to Cape Town and Johannesburg(747-400). Other option is Lufthansa from Frankfurt to Johannesburg (747-8i) but you would need an EDI/LHR connection to Frankfurt.
