Ticket time limit for RTW itins booked in "A" class

If I make a booking for a RTW itinerary in December, how long will the airlines (CX, BA, AA etc.) hold my reservation before cancelling it if it is not ticketed or priced by the rate desk?

Can I make a reservation and maybe have it ticketed in October or November, or before the price increases (whatever comes first)?

For trips originating in USA/Canada, you require 7 days prior to departure.

For other cities, you can issue ticket up to 1 hour prior to departure.

But remember, even if a fare is 'stored' on your reservation, it is only guaranteed for 24 hours. So when it comes time to ticket and the fare has gone up, you'd have to pay the new fare.

I think ex-BKK fares are also 7 days in advance... not sure about other countries, but I didn't know that you could do 1 hour prior to departure from some cities...

The CX/UA RTW fare is 7 days in advance, not the Oneworld Explorer fare. Travel agents and airlines would prefer to have you believe that its 7 days prior as you know that tickets issued in Thailand are a bit more complicated than just handing over your credit card!
