Friggin’ awesome Dan!


The price is right…..good link


Ayala, its the best idea to write a cell number in a public forum


I agree! It is definitely the best idea. Mine is 718-770-7770. Anyone else wanna share??


My bad, meant its “NOT” the best idea

This works from Washington Dulles as well.


Any one looking for a ticket to the Rudolph wedding, I just priced tickets out of JFK at 930.00 NZD = 699.914 USD.

Pretty good deal. Departure is Wed. Jan 18th. Returns (with a stop in Dakar)on Sunday Jan 23rd.

That’ $300 savings off of the price when booked normally.


Hi, I really want to find this deal, it sounds amazing and its really urgent!!
Where do I find these prices. I clicked on the link and it just took me to the regular expedia website and when I typed it in the prices were really expensive.
How do I know the dates that price is available for?
Please let me know ASAP!!!


@Chaya: Go to the NZ expedia website in the link above. Price out your ticket. Worked fine for me. NOTE THE PRICE YOU SEE IS IN NZ CURRENCY. @Julius: and a good way to clock in over 15k eqm to start the year off.


Will these tickets be OK for earning USAirways miles?


Im in israel, and i know this sounds dumb, but do you think this might be for the israel to south africa route as well?


It does sound dumb. Check yourself & don’t be lazy.


Did anyone book 12-20th and does NOT want to go?


Just got tickets from IAD to Cape Town for January 20-27! Total $729



You mean like they were so excited at the prospect of charging up $700 on their credit card, and now are miffed because they could have used that to pay their rent instead?

rudolph wedding

Everyone buy tickts!!!!


Yeah! its actually from any city to any city! Just pick the price you want!


I will charge your credit card later



Whats to do there. We would go on vacation there instead of Europe. google search didnt really show anything exciting there


Jake, are you serious? Nothing exciting in Africa? Try google Kruger National Park. That’s it. There is absolutely nothing like it in the world.




Definitely still alive.
I just tried 02/07-02/14 as a random date and it’s still just $694 at current exchange rates.


Thanks man!!
I just booked and paid to Cape Town!!
Was $720, normally about $1,200 AT LEAST


Most beautiful country in the world. I can die for cape town. Jake you’ll looove south Africa


Thanks guys for the vote of confidence!!! Needed it today! 😉


I have good friends living there. They moved from NY a few months ago and say they love it. So especially considering the current teperatures in ny, I think I’m going.


they had this price about a year and half ago and i went to SA on it the exchange rate then was like $615.00 any way it doesn’t seem to be a mistake it’s just how they do things in NZ.

it works and you get full millage for it.


i just checked for flights and it seems like its dead
