A little advisory based on my experience 2 years ago:
There's a terror alert in the US now based on "credible but unconfirmed"
information for the period around the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

return from Cape Town on a flight to Washington's Dulles airport that
departed Johannesburg on Sept 10 and then departed Dakar after refueling

There was no alert then, but I assume it was because of the date that
there were tons of extra security procedures both in Johannesburg and in
So ... I would just suggest being prepared for things to take more time
than usual, and not packing anything that could trigger any kind of
just sayin ...
