short answer is: Forget about a RTW ticket if YYC/WAW/NRT are your only stops, it´s not worth the money. If you had asked a few weeks ago I may have reccommended a RTW ex-CPH, but the fares just increased substantially, the cheapest YRTW now is $3k++ and wouldn´t start in any of the countries you´re intending to visit.
I´d reccommend the following options:
1) any ticket YYC-Europe and a separate, nested ticket Europe-NRT (I´d reccommend LX in booking class H which is reasonably priced and upgrable using AE miles at time of booking)
2) If you really want to do a RTW, look into NZ fares Europe-AKL (most options are LON-AKL). Some of those fares allow a routing via NRT and Canada, e.g. LHR-NRT(VS/LH)-AKL(NZ)-YVR(NZ)-YYC(AC)-LHR(AC)
Check out different countries as starting points. You can save a ton of money by booking through Korea or many African countries (Check Ethiopia, South Africa or South Korea). Just means you have to get to the booking country to start and finish the trip but sometimes the cost of the return flights to starting point end up still saving you significantly than just booking a RTW from Canada/US/Europe
So who can get the most out of an ALL first class itinerary using all segments and stopovers and as close to 39,000 as possible?
If I had 3 months off work and $60K to blow on a trip I would be gone on one of these tomorrow.
I had put together a trip in First with 16 segments @ 38,920 for $25,000 However only 4 segments were actually in first (one SQ A380). So you might as well pay the $10,000 for the business version of the same trip. However my trip looked like some sketchy airlines. I'm sure someone here could plan the best planes, seats, lounges and experience. Would be curious to see what it would look like.
