South African Airways: Johannesburg-Lisbon-Zurich-Vienna November 1976

Just a few months after the launch of the Abidjan-Mediterranean hopline from the nearly-identical previous post, South African Airways inaugurated a second service to Lisbon, in November 1976.

Instead of staying in southern Europe, or stopping in West Africa, the B747 emblazoned with the winged springbok headed to the Alps, landing at Zürich, before terminating at Vienna. Neither city is served by modern-day SAA.
