Have you tried SA 207 from JNB to IAD and connect there to LGA? Seems to be pretty wide open in C end of Jan 13/beginning of Feb 13. You might want to check http://awardfinder.juny4ng.com, checks for *A awards pretty quickly

I feel your pain. It took me 3 days to get an award ticket booked. Availability showed up online but when I got to the point of purchase, I got an error message and it referred me to their Computer Support Desk. I called the Premier Desk and after a 90 minute wait, the agent told me that none of my flights were available. So I picked different ones that clearly showed availability online-and was told again that the flights weren't available. I repeated the procedure the next day and I was again told that the award seats available online weren't really available (this after a 70 minute wait to speak to a representative). I finally gave up and used AMEX points and got my ticket through Aeroplan which was quick and painless. For now, it seems as if my Mileage Plus points and my Presidential Plus card are useless...I have no desire to waste any more time on the phone with them.
