Interesting BA have dropped the 787 flight, i wonder if it will be back for peak season.
Given they have dropped the day time JNB but kept the Durban rotation (the two announced around the same time) it might indicate they aren't concerned about capacity to SA, rather the bank they can make mopping up fares to India. If they were concerned about capacity and fares, I would have expected them to can the Durban flight and funnel people through JNB.
