Critique my RTW rememption
I’m trying to build a 2 week RTW trip and i’d like some opinions on what you guys think.
Am I getting the most out the routes I’m taking?
Are there anythings I’m missing that I can take advantage of?
This is what I have:
SQ(B) SFO-SIN(stopover)-BKK, 68000 SQ Miles
JL(B) SGN-TYO(stopover)-PVG, 25000 AS Miles
QR(F) CAN-DOH(layover)-DXB, 50000 AA Miles
VS(B) DXB-LHR(layover)-SFO 85000 DL Miles
What is your objective?
How are you getting from say BKK-SGN and PVG-CAN?
Is it flying planes or seeing these cities?
(JL: SGN-TYO-PVG won’t work. I’m sure its the same as CX where it to/from Tokyo only.) It does work, good job
To answer your question did great. For comparison purposes here is a RTW trip I’ve booked
JFK-FRA-SIN-HKG SQ A380 FC 104K Stop
HKG-MEL TG A350 BC 30K Stop
MEL-SYD QF A330 BC 9K Stop
SYD-AKL LA B787 BC 20K Stop
AKL-HKG CXA350 BC Stop
HKG-ORD CX777 FC 80K
Total 234K, yours is a few thousand less.
The objective of this trip more leaning towards flying planes and burning some miles I’ve collected before they deval… I’d say 70-30. but I’d still like to roam the citys and site see. I would have about 17days or so for the whole trip.
BKK-SGN and PVG-CAN in (Y) either cash or a distance based award or train. IDK yet.
0/1 night in SIN(been here before)
2 nights BKK
2 nights SGN
2 nights TYO
3 nights PVG
1 nights CAN
2 nights DXB
0/1 overnight layover LHR
I know there is only so many things I can do in the limited time I have including flying and that these might not all fit in the 17 days but the # of nights in each city can be adjusted to fit 17 days.
Sounds good. BA points are great for those short haul flights.
