IST-JFK TK 773 4J - 12+ hour overnight layover
EWR-YUL AC 4Y E75
Managed to see a direct flight from YOW to EWR in Y on UA instead of from YUL in J on AC. Called in and now have:
YOW-EWR UA ERJ 4Y - 7 1/2 hour layover
EWR-CDG UA 764 4J STOP
CDG-BKK TG 380 4J - 12 hours to enjoy BKK and get a free massage
BKK-RGN TG 330 4J STOP
RGN-SIN SQ 333 4J - 18 hour overnight layover - Turn around for 1 PAX
SIN-DPS SQ 333 3Y - Turn around for 3 PAX
DPS-SIN SQ 333 3J
SIN-KUL SQ 333 1J/3Y
KUL-IST TK 333 4J - 4am arrival and 14 hour layover = free city tour
IST-JFK TK 773 4J - 18 1/2 hour overnight layover
LGA-YYZ AC 4J 321
YYZ-YOWAC 4Y 763

There was availability on a direct LGA-YOW flight in Y early in the morning but would have meant getting kids up at 4am after arriving at 22:15 TATL. In any case I get to visit all 3 NYC airports for this trip.

The good news is that the swap on the 1st leg from AC J to UA Y resulted in a $252.48 drop in fees per person (despite adding an extra AC J leg at the end).

The original itinerary was $991.05 + 33.90 per person ... now $738.57 + 33.90 (plus the 90+tax change fee).

When is the trip? next 2-3 weeks since YYZ-TPE BR usually releases last minute
I do see some IST-TPE BR/TK for July though

I'm seeing YVR-HKG-SIN-CGK-BKK-HKG-YVR as bookable in multi-city, so you should be fine.

Booked the following itinerary with helpful Aeroplan agent. Wait time was 5 minutes.

YOW - YYZ (AC J) - 321
YYZ - ORD (UA J) - CR7 (overnight)
ORD - NRT (NH F) - 773
NRT - SIN (NH F) - 773 (stop)
SIN - SYD (SQ J) - 333 (destination)

SYD - ICN (OZ J) - 772
ICN - LAX (OZ F) - 388 (stop)
LAX - YUL (AC J) - 320
YUL - YOW (AC J) - CRA

Fees + taxes, etc. = $ 1,019.32 + $ 33.90 (booking fee) per ticket.

Took 20 minutes to book the flights and ticketed by Aeroplan within 2 days.

Just came back from the following trip last night. This was booked only a day before departure.

YUL-YYZ, AC J A333
YYZ-LAX, AC J B763, overnight in Los Angeles
LAX-ICN, OZ F A388, overnight in Seoul
ICN-NRT, UA Y B738 (ugh)
NRT-BKK, TG F A388, stopover in Bangkok
BKK-USM, TG Y B734, destination Koh Samui
USM-BKK, TG Y B734
BKK-HKG, TG F B744
HKG-FRA, LH F A388, 12 hours in the FCT and took advantage of the Porsche deal
FRA-CDG, LH J A321, stopover in Paris
CDG-MUC, LH J A320
MUC-ORD, LH F A346
ORD-YUL, AC J E175




Total of 215,000 AP miles + around 1,100$CAD in taxes. Well worth it IMO

Took 3 agents 6 hours to figure out the taxes and get this ticketed. I was getting quite nervous that I would get this ticketed on time. Fortunately all was well with the ticket and I had a amazing time - A lot of flights but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would do it again tomorrow!

Just a heads up, I might of posted this in the wrong version of this thread. Just in case I'll post it here too.

First time trying this... was wondering if anybody can confirm if either of these are valid or not. I made one and my gf made one. We live in ottawa but can depart from toronto or montreal. I chose toronto tos tart.

Code:

My GF and I want to hit up 4 separate countries on the itinerary. Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Cambodia (this itinerary has them in that order).

We also have 3 layovers in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, although the Tokyo one is quite short (10:30). I've checked availability and all these flights are available.

And here is hers:

AC7598	X	ORD	6/2/2017 20:25:00	YUL	6/2/2017 23:28:00	Layover
Thanks to anyone who can help!

I've never booked one of these crazy itineraries, but if you have trouble, do an open jaw booking into one and out another and fly some discount Airlines inbetween.

Looks like 2 stops (I'm considering the turnaround as a stop) and 1 open jaw to me, which I don't think is allowed.

Of course don't take my advice as I have an open question in another thread asking about booking open-jaws in mini-RTWs.

Thanks for responding! Is the turnaround not the "destination"? So you can have 2 stops along with a destination or 1 stop + destination + 1 open jaw.
