    Hi Guys,

    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.
