Add ATL-CPT/JNB and JFK-JNB(maybe CPT as well, I'm just not sure) operated on a South African Airways 747-400. With the ATL flights, they fly 7 days a week to South Africa, but I think 4 of the days are ATL-JNB-CPT and the other 3 are ATL-CPT-JNB.
Ethiopian Airlines flies EWR-FCO-Addis Ababa with a 763
Ghana Airways (I think that's what it is) flies JFK-Accra with a DC-10.

LT-AWACS, I must correct you. The flights are operated by World Airways by an MD-11, and fly not to Acrra, but to Luanda Angola under the name Sonair. My father got to fly there to accompany one of his close friends who is moving to Angola. The flight has two stops, one in Sal, and one in Gabon. Hope that helps.

The Ethiopian flights from Addis to Newark (tech stop in Rome, no traffic rights at all, neither Ethiopia to Rome nor Rome to the US) continue to Dulles, so EWR and IAD are both served by the same flight (no traffic rights between EWR and IAD either obviously). Aircraft type is 767.
Something that really irritates is seeing "Worldwide Service" on United aircraft. Doesn't say much for America's view of the world. "Worldwide Service" like the "World Series". Sorry, a few cities in western Europe and a few in Asia plus the Americas do not "Worldwide Service" make. Someone should point to Africa on a map in a UA planning meeting someday or show them a BA/LH/AF/MH/RG/CX/KL/any other half decent airline's route map. Or are UA about to go out of business? Hell, Alitalia fly to more continents than UA.

Thanks no1racer I knew I'd remember something wrong in the details, but I have seen the World Air MD-11 at IAH before.
There are still talks to get more Houston - Mid East service underway
Airmale- Turkey is in the Mid-East as is Egypt; as MID-EAST is not a fully defined Geographical place, though the General Area is known (kind of like the 'Deep South' in the USA) Turkey (like Russia) is however in both Europe and Asia, like Egypt is in Africa and Asia.

Yes, geographicly, they are the Middle East, just like geographiclly Miami is the in the South. However, Turkey considers themselves part of Europe, even Delta's website list Istanbul as Eastern Europe.
