    With the merger, and the leaving of the Star Alliance, what are the options on OneWorld to go to Africa. I'm actually pretty loose on which country, Eastern Africa preferred , I'm just not familiar with OneWorld,I've used Star Alliance airlines for 10 years and so I'm am not at all up on the tricks to get there. Is this usually a tough ticket to get from the US? On US Airways it seemed simple, I could use South African to get there.

    BA is one option, but they charge a significant fuel surcharge on award fares. Qatar also has service to NBO. You might be able to go west on JAL, QF or Cathay.
    You should also search for the OneWorld explorer award. Search the American board for tons if useful info.
