Once you have built your itinerary on google flights or ita, you should be able to book it via united for the price mentioned here.
Hawaii and Tokyo should also be possible on such a trip if someone manages.

It's only allowed to visit one continent once? A routing from Tokyo to Singapore is not possible as it seems.

Starting point has to be Paris.

ExpertFlyer is displaying 3 iterations of the PNCFR fare, each with their own routing rules (copied below). A RTW itinerary would effectively be combining two of the iterations.

You'll note that Honolulu is available if travelling via N. America and crossing the Pacific, while Tokyo is available if flying directly to/from Europe or via Seoul. One could stop in both Tokyo and Honolulu as part of a RTW itinerary using this fare, but you would need to stop in Auckland between them.

I'm having a somewhat different issue --- my itinerary (CDG - VIE - JFK; LGA - ORD - AKL; AKL - ORD - LGA; JFK - VIE - CDG) prices at Eur 2,737.08 on UA (united.com/en/fr, as linked from GF), but at the final step they refuse to sell it to me in EUR, but instead (presumably based on my credit card billing address, not my IP address) insist on translating it to USD at ~5% above the current exchange rate. Does anyone have the secret for avoiding this surcharge?

[P.S. In normal situations, I would be tempted to call in to UA and insist that they bill my credit card in Euro, but this fare is perhaps too interesting to others for me to be making phone calls to any Star Alliance carrier at this point...]

Any actual ticketing success to share?

Sorry to hear it did not work out for you. Thanks for your feedback!

This one seems to be bookable though OTA's. CDG-HNL-AKL-NRT/HND-CDG £2344. Very tempted by this!!

But it is bookable? The only problem I've found is when it re-directs you to the United site, but if you get a link for an OTA it seems fine.
