I used a combo of United and ANA when I did my booking (see above somewhere).

For ANA you'll need to sign up (free) to their rewards program. Then search by international partners award flights. It takes a bit of getting used to but was invaluable for helping me navigate through Africa.

I thought I should share this one. All in J...except YYZ-YUL (so close...)

YHZ - LHR
LHR - BKK
BKK - SIN (Stop)
SIN - AKL (Turn)
AKL - PEK
PEK - ICN
ICN - YYZ
YYZ - YUL (open jaw)

Total 320K (2 pax) and ~550$ in total.

The tricky part was this did not work originating in YUL, but it did if we left from YHZ. If we had left from YUL, Auckland would have been closer than Singapore (a little counter intuitive, but yes) therefore making Singapore the destination and Auckland a stop over (which would have put us over MPM on the way back)

Kudos to the AE agent who suggested this workaround...

not quite a mini-RTW

YVR-YUL-LGA/EWR-ARN-FRA-MLA (stop)
MLA-IST/SAW-TBS (turnaround)
TBS-IST-OPO (stop)
OPO-ZRH-YUL-YVR

115K in J + 389.26 + phone booking fee

hi, guys: my mini RTW is YYZ-TPE-SYD-CDG-YYZ which is scheduled from March 2019 to May 2019. I just used the united airlines search engine to check the flight info and found those flights had not been posted yet. the latest flights is in Jan 2019. maybe a few months later. my question is should I book the award saver flights as early as possible (to lock the seat) or just a few months before the trip (more seats will be posted by the airlines later), which is better. thank you.

They release on different dates, around -330~350

Book ASAP because they'll be GONE and very unlikely to be released later until possibly T-2 weeks

I see some flights available on ANA but when I call into AP, the agents say they dont have anything.

I'm trying to find this but it's kind of hard with low taxes...

YOW - KIX/HKG (stop)
Kix-hkg (stop)
KIX/HKG - BKK (layover)
Bkk- SYD (stop)
SYD-SIN (layover)
SIN-IST (layover)
IST - YYZ

I want to do a stop over in HKG and KIX, leaving from ottawa. The turnaround is Sydney.

I had found these flights with taxes of $1000 for 2 passengers. THESE ARE BOOKABLE
DEPARTING MAY 5TH (WANTED May 4th but cant find nything)
YOW - YYZ - ORD (AC)
ORD - ICN (ASIANA)
ICN - KIX (OZ) - STOP
KIX - HKG (AIR INDIAN) - STOP ***NH shows available with ANA but when i called AP, they said not available which is weird...
HKG - BKK - SYD (TG) - once again, ANA shows flight but AP doesnt. *TURNAROUND
SYD - SIN - IST (SQ) -
IST - BOS (TK)
BOS - YYZ- YOW (ac)

**There was a direct from IST-YYZ but its gone.

Trying to find an easier (less layovers) and less taxes flights but cnat do it within the MPM.

Where are your stops? Even without knowing that you're way over. You can't route through Asia to Europe without stopping in Asia.

While that's true for the most part, you can do YVR-PEK-IST with a layover in PEK.
