I think this is not as easy as first glance might suggest. Comair only fly to ten destinations from JNB and two of them, GRJ and ELS are exclusive to Kulula, not BA. But even then, several (HRE, WDH, VFA, LVI and MRU) are at low frequency, once daily or less. This means that if AA want to connect to/from these, they'll need the aircraft to sit on the ground for about 12 hours at JNB. This will be raise their costs considerably when compared to DL who have an immediate turnaround. Given the already high costs, this route will have to be made on the high yield O&D. Anything they get in the way of connections will be the cream.
