Oneworld RTW rules question
i’m booking a RTW ticket and have maxed out the number of stopovers I’m allowed in one region. In this example, I’m flying BLR-HKG-SIN but have maxed out my stopovers in Asia.
I really want to do a stopover in HKG, so what I’m thinking is no-showing for my HKG-SIN flight and simply paying whatever the penalty is for the no show to reschedule the HKG-SIN leg for another day, thereby “buying” an additional stopover. does this make sense?
Well if youre booking it as a single ticket, after you no-show for the HKG-SIN, every following segment is cancelled….
Can you extend one of your stopovers and buy a separate round trip ticket to HKG? Or skip a stop and change it it to HKG since you really want to stop there.
Also, paid oneworld RTW tickets get pretty expensive. Have you checked prices for each segment and comparing?
