I discovered this flight by accident and it turned out to be a gem of a find. Usually, traveling from Accra Ghana to Washington on DC involves a lengthy and cumbersome trip through Europe that risks baggage loss or delays since one must change flights in Europe. The direct flight on South African Airways from Accra to Washington’s Dulles International Airport cut down the travel time and eliminated the need to change flights on the way. Because the flight departs Accra late at night (11.35pm), I slept soundly for most of the trip, especially as there was very little turbulence. The plane was sparkling clean and big and the seats were comfortable . Inflight Service was excellent and food and drinks were plentiful and of high quality. My biggest complaint is the price. The one-Way economy class ticket cost even more than a rountrip ticket on many other airlines that fly the same route.
