I’d like to get one last round-the-world (Europe/North Asia) trip booked before USAirways disappears, and I was thinking I’d like to go to Iceland to see the Northern Lights in December. The problem is, I’d have to go to Germany first, which would mean backtracking, as airberlin is the only way I can get there via oneworld.
Would something like SFO-LAX-DUS-KEF(destination)-MUC-DOH-HKG (stopover)-SFO work, or will I get shut down?
I assume that this would price out as a European award, which would mean 100k in Business, 125k in first, right?
@ Jonathan — Sorry, that’s not a legal routing. You can’t legally have a stopover in Hong Kong while enroute from San Francisco to Iceland, since that’s not a valid routing. You could do a stopover in Europe enroute to Asia, but it would have to be at a oneworld hub.
