Yes, the 78X is not listed as capable for that distance, but payload must be low enough to make the trip. I'll bet that's a long takeoff roll at 5510 feet above sea level with 14K foot runway.
The 78P Polaris cabin is larger than the 78J, so if it was full, you're looking at involuntary downgrades to PP. The 78J has been swapped out before on JNB with only about 25 seats blocked for weight restriction.
The public flight status display wouldn't show weight restrictions but it would show on internal devices used by the operating crew. On the public display, blocked economy seats would only show as occupied.
