Flights from multiple cities across the US to Doha, Johannesburg, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, and Maputo, Mozambique, are available from just $304 one-way or $674 round-trip. The following deals are 2-for-1 flight deals. All itineraries must include a stopover in Doha, while travelers are free to choose the second city in their itinerary. This deal was originally reported by Secret Flying as a one-way deal, however, it appears that most if not all one-way deals are available as round-trip itineraries as well.
