Delta does ATL to JNB with a 777. I have not checked the distances or whether they are fully loaded with pax and freight.

Picture here is the A-380 but Emirates plan to use 777-200LR for this service.

The (referenced) article clearly states the use of an A350 variant for the route.

This must be scheduled carriers only, because the military does longer routes on a weekly basis.

I don't think the military has anything with that kind of range.
