Just an update on my previous post! My brother-in-law had a brainwave!! Since Malaysian Airlines cancelled their flight and just re booked him on a SAA flight, he decided to ask them to change that departure date! So that means he will still be flying on his original LAN flight to Buenos Aires, spend 2 days there, THEN fly to South Africa on the next SAA flight! At no extra cost except 2 night hotel accommodation in Buenos Aires!
So it ends well and we're all smiling and can't wait!!
