Which isn't new as SA has served MIA before.

But they are not at MIA at the moment. So, I guess 'new' is somewhat appropriate.

Has it been clarified yet if the other stop is going to be Abuja or Abidjan?

Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. They haven't even announced they're returning to MIA, let alone clarified which airports they'll be stopping over in.

Unfortunately, the big announcement has been delayed for now. There's some "issues" going on.

Then it must surely be SAA, issues galore!

If it is SAA, will AA then abandon their plans for using own metal to South Africa (if they haven't decided against along time ago already)

I heard something completely different. And I heard from multiple "sources" that is not from the Internet but people that are close to the situation.

The link in the opening post has been updated with this piece of information:

Quote:
In order to start the service, South African is requesting an exemption from Star Alliance to enter into an agreement with another carrier, and a meeting between the two sides is scheduled for this month. Should the alliance and airline’s board approve, the flights could be announced later this month and start in May 2016.

Tomorrow (December 9th), a meeting is expected between SAA and Star Alliance. The meeting is to request an exemption from Star Alliance to enter into an agreement (codeshare) with another carrier for flights to/from MIA.


Fingers crossed.
