South African Airways (SA, Johannesburg O.R. Tambo) has announced its daily outbound Johannesburg O.R. Tambo to New York JFK service will once more incorporate a stopover in Dakar Yoff-Léopold Sédar Senghor Int'l, Senegal with effect from October 27. The inbound remains direct. According to SAA, Johannesburg's Hot & High conditions (1'694m ASL) are exacerbated in Summer imposing greater payload restrictions on departing aircraft. The flight is operated with an A340-300 though an A340-600 is sometimes rotated in according to demand.
