RTW Award Booking Question

Does anyone have an estimate of how many points + fuel surcharges/taxes an award like this would be:

NYC to TPE on BR in J (layover)
TPE to BKK on BR in J (stop for 6 days)
BKK to AMS on BR in J (stop for 4 days) -- yes, BR fly BKK to AMS for some reason.
AMS to NYC on UA in J

I'm thinking 125k miles plus maybe $400-500? Or am I off?

Will the around the world part cause issues? I've booked these trips before on US Airways but not with Aeroplan yet.

Since it's all over BR and UA who do not charge scam charges, I expect your fees will be less than $400 by a good margin.

You are responsible for the mileage to the furthest point in the trip which is BKK, you can look up on the chart how much that will be, I'm not exactly sure. The stopovers are free as long as they are within the MPM allowances.

What are the rules on the mpm allowance? Has anyone done Southeast Asia and Western Europe before?

Your routing is valid. It would cost 125k + about $150 in taxes. You can also add another stopover in Europe or Asia if you want.

I'm sure this has been posted somewhere but I can't find it. How far out does UA release reward inventory?
