+1. When my friend was flying YOW-ORD-NRT and the ORD-NRT was cancelled (ouch, a 747 full of disgruntled passengers) they rebooked him on YYZ-NRT.

US might do something bizarre like reroute you on EK. My dad just got switched from PHL-ZRH-DXB to PHL-MAN-DXB on EK 388

Please tell us if they allow it or not. That would be a cool routing! You'd definitely be maximizing! I hope you'd not be doing that in Y though...

Is NH1077 totally cancelled now? I thought some days were going with the B773?

However, everything thru SIN seems to be alowed, but you wont know till you try.

You can expect about $1000 fees on your ticket.
Published routings on SQ are:

Code:
/VIA THE PACIFIC/
DOM ROUTE VALIDATION APPLIES WITHIN ORIG/DEST COUNTRIES
 1. SEA-AS-LAX-TYO-OSA/NGO/FUK-SIN-SQ/MI-MEL
 2. SEA-SQ-LAX-TYO-OSA/NGO/FUK-SIN-SQ/MI-MEL
 3. SEA-VX-LAX-TYO-OSA/NGO/FUK-SIN-SQ/MI-MEL
 4. SEA-AS-SFO-SEL/HKG-SIN-SQ/MI-MEL
 5. SEA-SQ-SFO-SEL/HKG-SIN-SQ/MI-MEL
 6. SEA-VX-SFO-SEL/HKG-SIN-SQ/MI-MEL
So my assumption would be that you might be able to do it, but would need to work with an agent a lot.

Question - with EVA Air coming into the alliance, what new Mini RTW routes can you think of - either using them to fly or using a published routing?

I understand from what I've read that their first class is pretty good. I know they are based out of Taipei and also fly to DPS...

Any creative ideas out there?...I am based out of YYZ and I believe they are adding flights from here. YQ charged with EVA or is it too early to tell?

It seems like as long as SIN-Australia is on SQ, it doesnt matter how one gets to SIN. Thats from personal experience, as well as from this thread.
YMMV.

Thanks - I've been asking this for a while and mixed responses received. It *seemed* to be leaning towards what you say, though, so it's good you have experienced this.

What is the SQ pub routing to SYD? AKL? Same? Assume these would work from YVR? I thought some one posted it worked from YYC?

I will try once more asking where do the pub routings come from. Neither from ANX nor from EF. I will be so grateful if I finally get an answer that I might refer someone to someone sometime. Maybe, eh.

Should be roughly similar. Yes - someone did post being able to route YYC-LAX-etc.

On EF, in the left menu, go to Fare Information. Input the cities and the date, leave the rest blank. Search, and when the results come up, on the right, look for an icon that looks like a bunch of points connected together - that will give you routings for the airline in the first column.

I've just booked a mini RTW in F with half my segments in J.

What is the program/software/website that allows one to monitor reward availability in F on specific flights thus removing the need for me to spend all day checking the UA website for availability?
