RTW including DME or SVO

Am looking at doing an ex-CAI RTW as I think its probably still the best place to buy them.

Routing will be as follows in A or D class

CAI-LHR-JFK-SFO-LAX-SYD- and its here I want to get from SYD to DME or SVO

I guess the normal route would be to come back to LHR and then do LHR-DME return before going back to CAI. The rules say I have 2 free segments within Origin continent and I am assuming that CAI-LHR and then LHR-CAI counts as these 2.

The other rule seems to say I can add segments for $200 USD per segment within a continent and therefore I assume I can add LHR-DME return as a side trip for $400 USD in D. This in theory is going backwards but as its within a continent I assume its allowed.

Therefore full trip ends up being

CAI-LHR-JFK-SFO-LAX-SYD-LHR-DME-LHR-CAI

This I figure is a AONE4 or a DONE4 with extra $400 USD for the DME side trip

Anyone disagree ?? or have any better ideas of how of may do this.

I guess I can get a few more exec points if I split the LHR-SYD as LHR-SIN-SYD

Have checked routing throuhg BKK, SIN, HKG, HEL but all involve non oneworld.

TIA

Hi, A few comments to start.
You get 4 segments in Europe but only 2 stopovers because it is your continent of origin.
129N . 1. A STOPOVER IS A BREAK OF JOURNEY OVER 24 HOURS.
130N . 2. STOPOVER PERMITTED ANYWHERE.
131N . 3. MAXIMUM 2 STOPOVERS PERMITTED IN THE CONTINENT
132N . OF ORIGIN.
You also are allowed only two segments between the UK and various ME and EUR destinations including Egypt and Russia. Basically, this rule prevents you from starting in CAI and going to Moscow unless you route through MAD from CAI. (HEL would be a possibility if you included Asia in your plans and routed that way on AY - SWP-ASIA-EUR).
33N NOTE 1: NO MORE THAN 2 FREE SEGMENTS BETWEEN THE U.K.
34N AND:
35N .
36N .
37N . ALGERIA ARMENIA AZERBAIJ BAHRAIN BULGARIA CYPRUS
38N . AN
39N .
40N . EGYPT GEORGIA GREECE IRAN ISRAEL JORDAN
41N .
42N . KUWAIT LEBANON MACEDONI MALTA MOROCCO OMAN
43N . A
44N .
45N . FUNCHAL QATAR ROMANIA RUSSIA SAUDIA SYRIA
46N . , PORTU ARABIA
47N . GAL
48N .
49N . TUNISIA UNITED UKRAINE YUGOSLAVIA
50N . ARAB EM
51N . IRATES
Also, you can't buy extra segments in the continent of origin.
56N . 2. 2 ADDITIONAL FLIGHT SEGMENTS WITHIN EACH
57N . CONTINENT, EXCEPT THE CONTINENT OF ORIGIN MAY
58N . BE PURCHASED. EACH ADDITIONAL FLIGHT SEGMENT
59N . MAY BE PURCHASED AT A CHARGE OF:

Plenty of options from SYD-SVO via Asia. All using OW
BA,QF to BKK/SIN then AY to HEL-SVO
CX: SYD-HKG/PEK AY:HKG/PEK-HEL-SVO
Note: AY only have Business. No First.
I will leave the rulings part for someone with more knowledge.
