I have a coworker who is planning a vacation to Johannesburg. He is planning this route: SFO-JFK-JNB.
The SFO-JFK leg being SA)">UA, the JFK-JNB leg, being South African.
The SFO-JFK leg would be UA16, and the JFK-JNB would be SA204.
He will have approx. 90 minutes to connect.
He was wondering that, because SA is planning to join Star Alliance soon, how easy the connection process will be (as far as transfer of baggege and ease of ticketing).
This trip is happening in late May 2005, will SA have joined Star by then?
