Star Alliance: CDG-North America-Auckland-Asia-CDG 2735€ biz

You can build a round the world ticket with Star Alliance members from Paris.

Can only be booked via OTA's (I haven't found anything with the airlines themselves).
  • In Asia, you can choose from Bangkok, Seoul, Hong Kong, Shanghai or Beijing
  • In North America, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Vancouver, New York and probably a few more...
Travel Dates available from June into 2023, not every single date is working

Here 2 examples.

CDG-SFO-AKL-SIN-CDG 2735€

CDG-SFO-AKL-BKK-CDG 2780€

Does anyone know the fare basis code or the fare rules? I tried searching for it in ExpertFlyer and got nothing at this price.

I think this is a version of :Fare 1: Carrier LX ZNCFR PAR to AKL (rules)
Which is a Paris to Auckland allowing for stops both directions. Using GF or ITA it comes up with higher amount. I am playing with it as even though LAS was mentioned above it doesn't work for those same dates but to LAX and open jaw LAS-AKL does for some euro's more.

Head up on New Zealand... This is clear as Mud... one link says after July if Vaxxed you are good to go...

Step 4 — By July 2022
The following fully vaccinated people can enter New Zealand:
  • All travellers from Australia.
  • Visitors from countries who do not need a visa (visa waiver visitors).
  • Visitors from other countries who already hold a valid visitor visa.
  • From July, travellers arriving under the Accredited Employer Work Visa categories.
But then.....

Reuters Article
Tourists from Australia and other visa-free countries will only be allowed in by July and travellers from the rest of the world will be kept out until October under the plan.
All travellers would still have to self-isolate for 10 days, Ardern said.

A spokesperson for Australian travel agent Flight Centre (FLT.AX) said isolation requirements would be a "dealbreaker" for the vast majority of potential travellers.
Tourism Export Council of New Zealand CEO Lynda Keene said the self-isolation rule was a "complete handbrake that will keep New Zealand disconnected from the world, not reconnected."
Ardern said the government will be reviewing the self-isolation requirements.
"It will be a much more meaningful reopening for tourists if they are able to enter with lesser self isolation," she told reporters.


So, visit New Zealand and still get stuck in a Hotel? not 100% clear...

PNC60FR on LH or LX accounts for the US stopovers, but that doesn't allow the stopovers in Asia.

Don't understand- 1. Which OTA is this? Is it TravelSmart? and 2. Expedia.de gave me the flights and prices but when I tried to buy the ticket it gave me the fare changed error. Did you actually click through on a purchase? My Itin was same dates as SFO but routing: CDG-LAX (open) LAS-AKL-SIN-CDG AKL-SIN on SQ. 2845 Euros.

Attractive as this is as a RTW fare, don't overlook that the permitted stopovers in each direction allows one to create two distinct roundtrip itineraries (i.e. France to USA, and separately, USA lo New Zealand). I'm having no trouble exploring such itineraries in the (old) ITA Matrix, Multi-city, using Alliance star-alliance as the limiting factor.

In ExpertFlyer I'm noting that NZ is scheduling only 787s for their TPAC routes (LAX, SFO, IAH, ORD) later this year. If anyone believes that this is only placeholder info (i.e. no sense scheduling the more comfortable 777s until the country actually reopens), or that the mediocre online reviews of NZ's 787 business class seat are misleading, please don't hesitate to provide your insights. TIA!
